Why do stainless steel crowns fail?

Stainless steel crown

When primary molars lose a lot of dental tissue due to extensive caries or trauma, it is necessary to rehabilitate them with preformed steel crowns, which have a high success rate.

Stainless steel crowns are placed in an easy-to-perform, one-appointment procedure and are inexpensive. There are cases of failure that are the reason for this study.

Stainless Steel Crowns: Adaptation and installation - Step by step

Hall Technique

Steel crowns in pediatric dentistry are a method of restoring primary teeth that are severely affected by caries or dental trauma, in this way natural exfoliation is expected.

Steel crowns are the most used for their easy adaptation, installation and low cost. Currently, the Hall technique is used, which simplifies the procedure for installing metal crowns.

What is the best pulp dressing for pulpotomies in primary teeth? - Review

Pulpotomy

Caries is an infectious process that affects the dental structure and compromises the pulp, putting the vitality and permanence of the tooth at risk. Pulpal therapies in primary dentition have as main objective to maintain the tooth until its natural exfoliation.

Pulpotomy removes the pulp from the pulp chamber and places a dressing to stop bleeding and mummify the entrance to the radicular pulp. This procedure maintains the vitality of the primary tooth.

Different pulp dressings have been used in pulpotomies, each with different characteristics and properties. The article we share compares all pulp dressings to determine which is the most effective.

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.

Space Maintainers: Types, indications and complications

Space Maintainers

Dental trauma and extensive caries are the most common reasons for premature loss of primary teeth. In these cases it is necessary to place a space maintainer whose objective is to preserve the space destined for the successor permanent tooth.

Space maintainers can be fixed or removable, unilateral or bilateral, and have different designs. The specialist will decide which type of maintainer is suitable for the patient after a clinical and radiographic evaluation.

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.

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.

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.

Pharmacological treatment of oral infections in pediatric dentistry - Recommendations and dose calculation

Pharmacology

When the pediatric patient presents an oral infection, antibiotics should be administered with the objective of controlling the infection and avoiding serious consequences at a systematic level. The correct management of antibiotics is a challenge for many pediatric dentists.

In comparison, the metabolism of a drug in a child is different from that of an adult, so the administration of an antibiotic should be taking into account the diagnosis, age and weight of the pediatric patient.

The article that we share offers us a review of the proper use of antibiotics in pediatric dentistry, considerations that we must take into account when prescribing antibiotics, and recommendations to calculate the dose in pediatric dentistry.

Pharmacological management of the behavior of the pediatric patient: Nitrous Oxide and General Anesthesia

Pediatric Dentistry

When pediatric patients attend their dental appointment, it can create a feeling of fear and stress that influences their behavior during the procedure. There are two types of behavior management: pharmacological and non-pharmacological.

When non-pharmacological behavior management techniques have been tried without results, we can use pharmacological methods: conscious sedation and general anesthesia.

We share two videos that teach us the use of nitrous oxide and general anesthesia as a method of pharmacological control in pediatric patients, touching on topics such as: indications, contraindications, dosage and recommendations.
