The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of low calorie soda beverages on the enamel of primary teeth. : Fifty enamel slabs were prepared from twenty primary extracted teeth and were equally divided into five groups: a) 0.9% NaCl (Control), b) Coca-Cola Classic (Sucrose), c) Diet Coke (Aspartame), d) Zevia Cola (Erythritol), e) Coca-Cola Life (Stevia). Each specimen was exposed to the beverage for a total of sixty minutes. Enamel surface roughness was measured before and after the exposures usin...
Maxillary osteomyelitis is a rare disease, especially in the pediatric population. We present a case of maxillary osteomyelitis in an eight-year-old girl with favorable outcome. Diagnosis was based on magnetic resonance imaging as well as on direct inspection intra operatively. Treatment should be based primarily on clinical signs (e.g. loose teeth). Teeth should not been extracted if healthy.
Dentinogenesis Imperfecta type II (DI2), also known as hereditary opalescent dentin, is one of the most common genetic disorders affecting the structure of dentin, not related with osteogenesis imperfecta, which involves both primary and permanent dentitions. The purpose of this article is to perform a scoping review of the published peer-reviewed literature (1986-2017) on DI2 management in children and to outline the most relevant clinical findings extracted from this review. Forty four articles were inclu...
The staining associated with its caries arrest may be a deterrent for the use of Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF). This study aims to elucidate the concerns that inform parents' perceptions and acceptance of SDF as a treatment option for their child.
To measure the dental anxiety levels of post-graduate pediatric dental students (PGS) and their instructors, and their ranking of the most anxiety provoking situations in the dental situation; to investigate gender differences with regard to dental anxiety.
To assess the effect of three behavior guidance techniques on anxiety indicators of children undergoing diagnosis and preventive dental care.
This in vitro study was aimed to investigate the performance of the new caries detection tools on the incipient occlusal caries.
To compare the in vitro cariogenic potential of two infant formulas (IF, for ages 6-12 months) processed with sterile distilled water with or without 1 ppm fluoride.
The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between malocclusion in mixed dentition and its impact on the oral health-related quality of life OHRQoL of children and their families as well to determine if there were any reported differences in OHRQoL due to malocclusion severity.
To determine prevalence, severity, and risk factors associated with Molar Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH) in schoolchildren between 6 and 15 years of age in Medellin, Colombia.
A 3 year and 8 months old Chinese boy was referred for a consultation regarding his missing maxillary anterior teeth. He had a history of trauma to his primary maxillary anterior teeth due to a fall at the age of 16 months. Clinical examination of the patient indicated multiple carious lesions and inadequate oral hygiene. Radiographic examination revealed intrusion of the primary left lateral incisor, with evidence of damage to the permanent tooth germ. Subsequently, the patient was followed-up for almost s...
The amount of emergency department dental utilization and related trend analysis data in peer-reviewed literature has increased; yet, little has been written on the actual management of dental emergencies. Often pre-existing medical conditions complicate what might otherwise be a straightforward dental emergency, challenging office-based dentists to manage dental emergencies in a safe manner. With the profession taking a stance on child safety, algorithms and checklists are becoming more important and commo...
To determine the evidence on the adverse effects of placing dental implants in healthy growing children.
This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of platelet rich fibrin (PRF) during revitalization of necrotic immature permanent anterior teeth after 6 months and 1 year follow up period. The following treatment protocols; Group A: revitalization using blood clot scaffold only, and Group B: revitalization using blood clot and PRF.
The objective of this survey was to assess attitudes of pediatric dentists in Israel toward using "knee-to-knee" positioning for dental examinations and for minor procedures in infants and toddlers.
To assess the association between long-term breastfeeding and dental caries in children during the third year of life.
To monitor the effects of rapid maxillary expansion (RME) on bone metabolic activities during and after 3 months of retention.
This study was aimed at assessing the impact of Virtual Reality (VR) distraction technique on pain and anxiety in 5-8-year-old children, during short invasive dental procedures.
Calcium phosphate and fluoride (F) delivery systems claim to facilitate enamel remineralization.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the prevalence and distribution of hypodontia, inside and outside the cleft area, in an Italian population with a non-syndromic unilateral (UCLP) and bilateral (BCLP) cleft lip and palate on panoramic radiographs and comparing it with a control sample.
To evaluate the preclinical effectiveness and clinical efficacy of chlorhexidine polymer scaffold for vital pulp therapy.
Missing posterior teeth and posterior tooth extractions are commonly seen and needed within orthodontic practices. With the invention of temporary skeletal anchorage devices (TSADs), clinicians can now effectively close posterior tooth spaces. Various molar occlusions are discussed to help clinicians envision post-treatment occlusions after posterior teeth space closure using TSADs.
Knowledge of oral health (KOH) among mothers has an important influence on their children's oral habits and routines. Lack of maternal KOH had been related to the development of early childhood caries among preschool children.
Unicystic ameloblastoma (UAM) is a variant of intraosseous ameloblastoma that occurs as a single cystic cavity. This report describes a case of UAM of the mandible in a seven-year-old girl. The lesion radiographically mimicked a dentigerous cyst. Under the primary diagnosis of a dentigerous cyst, marsupialization was performed to erupt the first molar involved in the cystic lesion and to obtain a definitive diagnosis. The biopsy specimen revealed ameloblastoma. During careful observation, orthodontic treatm...
