Evolving Therapies to Maintain Vital DentinPulp Complex: 100-years of Innovation

2021 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session

The 99th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from July 21-24, 2021 as a Virtual Experience.

The recordings in this library from the meeting are a selection of the science that was to be presented as part of the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, the IADR Academy and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles

Session Description 
Promoting biological-based solutions for restoring the vitality of the dentin-pulp complex has focussed attention on developing minimally-invasive techniques. This symposium presents and discusses a century of investigation, with a particular focus on elucidating the role of inflammation and dentin matrix components in the repair process. The symposium will also deliver new insights into the mediators of pulpitis and next-generation materials - their mechanisms of action and potential use as therapeutic targets will be considered.

   Learning Objectives
  • Consider the efficacy of minimally invasive solutions to maintain pulp vitality
  • Evaluate potential targets for inflammatory modulation in vital pulp treatment and understand the importance of identifying novel mechanisms to influence dental pulp repair processes, including the role of dentin-bound matrix components
  • Analyse the need to focus attention on third-generation diagnostic and therapeutic strategies and highlight potential barriers to clinical translation
