Symposium I: Digitalizing Healthcare
Title 1: 3D Printing in Medicine and Surgery: Transforming Creativity in the Era of 4th Industrial Revolution
Professor Dr. Zainul Ahmad Rajion
School of Dental Sciences, USM
Abstract: Following the invention of the first computed tomography (CT) scanner in the early 1970s, many innovations in three dimensional (3D) diagnostic imaging technologies have occurred, leading to a wide range of applications in craniofacial clinical practice and research. This advance in craniofacial medical imaging has allowed the 3D reconstruction of anatomical structures for medical applications, including the design of patient specific implants based on computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) platforms. This technology has provided new possibilities to visualize complex medical data through generation of 3–dimensional (3D) physical models via additive manufacturing that can be eventually utilised to assist in diagnosis, surgical planning, implant design, and patient management. Current state-of-the-art multidetector CT (MDCT), also known as medical CT, has an important role in the diagnosis and management of craniofacial injuries and pathology. Three-dimensional cone beam CT (CBCT), pioneered in the 1990s, is gaining increasing popularity in dental and craniofacial clinical practice because of its faster image acquisition at a lower radiation dose. Recent innovations in micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) have revolutionized craniofacial biology research by enabling higher resolution scanning of bone and teeth beyond the capabilities of MDCT and CBCT, presenting new prospects for translational clinical research. This may revolutionize any surgery and implies the printing of viable tissues (scaffolds and bioresorbable materials), allowing to open an entirely new surgical era (tooth printing, bone printing, congenital or surgical defect repair).

Title 1: Customization of Results in Facial Deformity Surgery by Combining the Latest Advances with the Armamentaria of Orthognathic Surgical Techniques in an Aesthetically Driven Era
Assist. Prof. Dr. Raymond Wong Chung Wen
National University of Singapore, Singapore
In an aesthetically driven era, influenced by social and main stream media, patients are no longer satisfied with just getting a good occlusion. Current advances allow us to customise our results (within reason); this talk will try to focus on the latest thinking and techniques that can be implemented easily. The surgical techniques of orthognathic surgery can be combined with customised patient specific implants using an aesthetically driven problem list to try to improve our results.

Dental photography is considered to be a powerful tool for treatment planning in the modern dental practice. Pre and post-op clinical pictures are necessary for diagnosis, treatment planning, maintaining dental records for patient motivation and medico-legal defence should the need arise. Images provide the necessary reference especially in high end aesthetic cases that demand precise result. While a well-planned treatment is essential for the longevity of the treatment, record of procedural as well as before and after dental photos significantly increase the patient’s confidence and helps in practice marketing. This lecture will enable the attendees to understand digital dental photography by using DSLR and other digital cameras available in the market. Dr Abu will outline the details of dental photography in general with the choices available, while highlighting the benefits of having specific modes, to capture intra-oral photos in the true dental colour and intuitive on screen guides that enable anyone in the dental team to take consistent photos every time.

The taking of an intraoral impression has always been an integral and important part of creating a treatment plan for any oral and maxillofacial work up. The traditional way of taking these impressions may involve using elastomeric or alginate materials. This can lead to errors that may not be seen in the clinical settings. Such mistakes may lead to poor fitting appliances that may end in disaster on the operating table. The advent of the digital intraoral scanner can improve on this situation as its accuracy is much higher than the conventional impression material. The tolerance is as low as 7 microns. This paper will describe the use of the intraoral scanner in the daily OMFS practice ranging from making OSA appliances to that of planning an orthognathic surgery and complex maxillofacial implant surgery.
