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.

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.

Dentigerous cyst in mixed and primary dentition. Diagnosis and surgical treatment

Dentigerous cysts

Dentigerous cysts are cavities with liquid content, and develop from the remains of the enamel epithelium. They are the most common, benign cysts, and are usually located in the lower jaw. It is related to the crowns of unerupted teeth.

They manifest as radiographic findings or when the patient has acute inflammation. Enucleation of the cyst is performed using the surgical technique of marsupialization.

Marsupialization of a large mandibular cyst in a pediatric patient - Clinical Case

Oral Surgery

Mandibular cysts are generally benign neoplasms, may be of odontogenic origin and vary in size and severity. Mandibular cysts can expand, injuring large extensions of bone tissue, involving the stability of the teeth.

Various techniques are used to surgically remove the mandibular cyst, enucleation when the cyst is small, or marsupialization when it is large.

What are those bony bumps in my mouth? (Torus)

Torus

Torus are exostoses or benign bony protrusions that appear in the upper or lower jaw. It can be unilateral or bilateral, and its etiology is unknown, but it is related to genetic factors, trauma or environmental factors.

The torus should be removed if they are large and generate aesthetic, chewing, swallowing problems, or when they interfere with the making of dental prostheses.

Odontogenic facial cellulitis in a pediatric patient - Medical-dental management considerations

Oral Pathology

Facial cellulitis is an infection, usually of odontogenic origin, that moves and evolves rapidly, putting the patient's general health at risk. The management of facial cellulitis in pediatric dentistry must be multidisciplinary.

In the initial stages, cellulite is of a soft consistency, in advanced stages it is hardened. The infant's immune system is diminished, so it is necessary to control and eliminate the causative agent.

Odontogenic infection in facial spaces - Pharmacological and surgical management in pediatric patients

Oral Surgery

Facial spaces are virtual spaces that are found between tissues, organs and faciae. These spaces become relevant in infectious processes, since they are occupied by purulent secretions that move through various regions of the head and neck.

Infections that affect the head and neck are generally of odontogenic origin, and have a rapid evolution that put the patient's life at risk. Treatment must be immediate and in many cases multidisciplinary.

Guide for the surgical management and oral pathology of the pediatric patient

Oral Pathology

To perform a surgical procedure in pediatric patients, we must take into account a series of special considerations, such as knowledge of anatomy, dental development and eruption, behavior and behavior of the patient.

Some of the pathologies that we can frequently find in children that need surgical procedures are: supernumerary and impacted teeth, congenital cysts, mucoceles.

Facial swelling in a pediatric patient - Causes, clinical and radiological manifestations

Oral Surgery

It is common to find some type of facial swelling in pediatric patients, so it is necessary to know its clinical manifestations and a correct anamnesis. We must bear in mind that the cause of a swelling is diverse.

In these cases, the use of computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is recommended to determine the extent and involvement of the swelling. Rhabdomyosarcoma, osteogenic sarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma should be taken into account in the differential diagnosis.

Odontogenic facial cellulitis in a pediatric patient - Diagnosis, treatment and multidisciplinary management

Oral Surgery

Facial cellulitis is an infectious process, usually odontogenic, that puts the life of the pediatric patient at serious risk if it does not have the appropriate treatment. The immune system of the child patient is not developed enough to deal with this type of infection.

Facial cellulite spreads to other anatomical regions, aponeurotic plane and tissue spaces. Clinically, facial cellulite is of a soft consistency and with inflammatory signs. Early diagnosis and treatment prevents serious consequences of cellulite.

Pediatric Anesthesia in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Dental Anesthesia

We start by saying that an adult patient is not the same as a pediatric patient. The anatomy and physiology are completely different, and these values must be taken into account when planning a surgical treatment.

The use of anesthesia reduces stress and anxiety during surgical procedures, but it is important to know how to handle the formulas to calculate the dose in pediatric patients.
