Your Webinar Invitation: Tuesday 04th August, 8pm AEST
Presented by Professor Laurie Walsh AO & Dr Yao Teoh
The old adage “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” seems an unusually apt description for some of the most recent advances in calcium hydroxide-based materials in endodontics. The idea of calcium hydroxide is not new, but it can now be delivered in now and different vehicles which greatly improve its effectiveness chemically and microbiologically (and also enhance its handling properties). The “something blue” aspect refers to the greater alkalinity (the blue colour of litmus dye) that can be achieved by altering the vehicle or carrier, to remove water but still be completely able to work in a water rich or water poor environment.
Taking an evidence-based approach, all the work discussed in the webinar has already been published in high impact material science journals and endodontic journals. The webinar will also discuss some recent research which debunks the long-standing view that placement of calcium hydroxide materials weakens roots – which turns out not to be the case!

About the Presenters
Professor Laurie Walsh AO
Laurie is the research program leader for advanced materials at the UQ School of Dentistry, and he leads research projects that explore the performance of new materials and techniques. Over the past 10 years, he has had a particular research interest in endodontic materials.
Dr Yao Teoh
Yao is currently completing specialist endodontic training at UQ, where he is in his third and final year. Prior to commencing his specialist training, he completed a research masters degree under the supervision of Laurie, studying new types of antimicrobial medicaments and endodontic cements, using both conventional microbiological methods and confocal laser scanning microscopy.
