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.

We share a manual that offers us recommendations and criteria for surgical procedures in pediatric patients and the most common pathological cases (biopsies, cysts, tumors, natal and neonatal teeth, mucocele, granulomas)

Mandibular tumors in pediatric patients. Report of 04 cases of aggressive tumors

Dental Anesthesia

There are several causes that give rise to a jaw tumor in a pediatric patient, so it is important for the professional to know the clinical characteristics of the lesion. Jaw tumors in children are not frequent, and cause a physical and psychological alteration of the patient.

In these cases, the use of images and a biopsy is necessary to determine the histopathology of the lesion and carry out an appropriate treatment plan.

Management of acute orofacial infection of odontogenic origin in children - Diagnosis, clinic and pharmacology

Oral Surgery

Infections of odontogenic origin are those that are generated and evolve from a tooth, either by a process of pulpal or periodontal infection. These infections spread to other tissues and put the patient's life at risk.

The abscess and cellulitis are the manifestations of the progressive phases of the infectious process. It is important to know their differences, and the clinical and pharmacological management.

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.

We share an article that tells us about and classifies the different causes and clinical manifestations of facial swelling in pediatric patients. It also teaches us how to identify facial swellings on CT scans and MRIs.
