Clear Aligners for Early Treatment of Anterior Crossbite - Indications and Benefits


Anterior crossbite is a sagittal plane malocclusion, and is characterized when one or more upper incisors have a lingual position with respect to the lower incisors.

The detection and treatment of the anterior crossbite must be at an early age, in this way we stop the factors that trigger this malocclusion and avoid abnormal growth of the jaws.


We share an article that presents the advantages and benefits of transparent aligners in the correction of anterior crossbite in patients with mixed dentition, regarding two reported cases.

Alternative for the rehabilitation of pediatric patients with early childhood caries

Oral Rehabilitation

Early childhood caries (known as baby bottle tooth decay) is an infectious process that destroys tooth structure, even leading to tooth loss. Rehabilitation is necessary to avoid serious aesthetic and functional consequences in the pediatric patient.

Rehabilitation in pediatric dentistry is a challenge since the treatment must be immediate to avoid problems in the child's cooperation. There are several methods to rehabilitate and replace prematurely lost teeth.


We share the oral rehabilitation of a pediatric patient affected by early childhood caries, using a functional appliance aesthetically appropriate for the patient.

Modified Hall technique in hypomineralized molar

Space Maintainers

Enamel hypomineralization is a developmental defect, it does not have a defined cause although it is related to systemic or environmental alterations during the first three years of life.

Molars with hypomineralized enamel are susceptible to erosion and caries. The rehabilitation of the molars is necessary to avoid early tooth loss, and in this case a steel crown was placed with the modified Hall technique.


We share the management of severely hypomineralized molars using the modified Hall technique, indicating its advantages, objectives and the step-by-step process.

Management of mandibular fractures in children. Diagnosis and treatment. Case report

Oral Surgery

Mandibular fractures in children are rare, and deserve special care because they are in full growth and craniofacial development. The appropriate treatment will depend on the age of the child and the affected mandibular area.

The evaluation and treatment must be immediate to avoid functional disorders, serious consequences in the craniofacial development and in the aesthetics of the patient. The treatment of mandibular fractures can be conservative or surgical.


We share the recommendations for the diagnosis, management and treatment of mandibular fractures in pediatric patients, and we report the case of a 3-year-old patient and her surgical treatment.

Natal teeth and Riga Fede ulcer: Diagnosis and treatment

Riga Fede

Riga Fede ulcer is usually located on the ventral side of the tongue, and is caused by the trauma caused by the presence of a natal or neonatal tooth. It is painful, so it limits the sucking action of breast milk, putting the baby's feeding at risk.

Natal and neonatal teeth are of unknown etiology, and are characterized by not presenting a single shape, they can be small or large and conical or normal in shape.


We share the clinical implications and the approach to the treatment of natal and neonatal teeth, regarding the case of the presence of Riga Fede ulcer in a two-month-old baby.
