Antimicrobial therapies for odontogenic infections in children and adolescents

Pharmacology

Oral infections are common in children and adolescents, and treatment must be treated in an effective and timely manner. Infectious processes occur when there is an imbalance in the patient's oral flora.

The use of antibiotics must be rational to avoid drug resistance of microorganisms (microbial resistance). Odontogenic infections can arise from caries or a periodontal problem, sometimes they can be due to dental trauma or iatrogenesis.

Update on antibiotic prophylaxis in pediatric patients

Pharmacology

Antibiotic prophylaxis aims to prevent the presence of a new infection from a therapeutic procedure. This preventive action is more important if the patient is immunocompromised.

In pediatric dentistry or general dentistry, the general health status of the child must be known, as well as his or her history and the severity of the infection, in order to determine the correct administration of antibiotics.

The Hall Technique: Manual for the management of primary molar caries

Hall Technique

Dental caries is an infectious process that affects both children and adults. When caries affects a large amount of dental tissue, a procedure is required to ensure the permanence of the primary tooth in the oral cavity.

The Hall technique is used on primary molars affected by caries, using preformed steel crowns. The effectiveness of this technique is proven, but a careful evaluation by the pediatric dentist is required.

We share a manual on the evaluation, application and procedure of the Hall Technique in primary molars affected by caries.

Hall Technique for Stainless Steel Crown in 3 easy steps

Oral Surgery

The Hall technique is an alternative to the treatment of extensive cavities that have affected a large amount of dental tissue in the primary teeth. This technique consists of placing a preformed metal crown without dental preparation.

Steel crowns are press-fitted on primary molars affected by extensive caries or when the enamel is defective. Thanks to the steel crowns, tooth loss and future occlusion problems are avoided.


We share a video that shows us how to place a steel crown on a primary molar using the Hall technique in 3 easy steps.

Virtual library - Pulp therapy in Pediatric Dentistry

Oral Rehabilitation

The goal of pulp therapy treatment is to keep the primary teeth healthy until the exfoliation stage. In this way, occlusion is preserved, premature loss of space in the jaws is avoided, and chewing or phonation is not affected.

The dental pulp can be affected by an infectious process or by dental trauma, and the pediatric dentist determines what treatment to carry out after a clinical and radiographic evaluation.

We share a series of articles and videos that show us the different treatments performed on primary teeth (pulpotomy and pulpectomy).

Prosthetics in Paediatric Dentistry - Article in PDF

Oral Rehabilitation

The loss of one or more primary teeth can be due to extensive cavities (bottle caries) or to a fracture involving the tooth root (dental trauma). The absence of these teeth generates a series of problems in the occlusion and aesthetics of the child.

The migration of the adjacent teeth, the loss of the alveolar bone and poor occlusion are some of the problems caused by missing teeth. The pediatric patient should undergo radiographic examinations and evaluated by the pediatric dentist and orthodontist.

Surgical excision of mucocele with local anesthesia in an 8-month-old baby

Oral Surgery

The mucocele is a common cyst of the minor salivary glands, and is produced by the accumulation or retention of mucosa as a consequence of an obstruction or trauma to the salivary duct.

The mucocele has a bluish or translucent color, and its size can be from millimeters to centimeters in diameter. It is rare to find a mucocele in a newborn baby.

Atraumatic Restorative Treatment - Indications, Advantages and Disadvantages

 Atraumatic Restorative Treatment

The atraumatic restorative treatment is a dental procedure that consists of removing the carious tissue but using manual instruments, and sealing the cavity with an adhesive material.

This technique is very useful when it is necessary to attend to oral health needs in hard-to-reach areas. The pediatric patient also generates less anxiety and stress.


We share a video where he talks about the advantages, indications and contraindications of atraumatic restorative treatment. We thank the YouTube channel, Dr. Teeth.

Anterior dental esthetics in primary teeth - Oral Rehabilitation

Oral Rehabilitation

When you want to rehabilitate a primary tooth that has been affected by a fracture or extensive dental caries, some characteristics must be taken into account, such as the small size of the tooth and the large size of the dental pulp.

Primary teeth can be affected by bottle tooth decay, or by hypoplastic defects, and in some cases by bruxism. The restoration technique as the aesthetic material to rehabilitate the tooth will be chosen after a correct evaluation by the professional.

Early Treatment of Anterior Crossbite with Eruption Guidance Appliance: A Case Report

Orthodontics

The anterior crossbite is a type of malocclusion in the anteroposterior plane, characterized by having the lower teeth in front of the upper ones. Early evaluation is important to diagnose malocclusion and through interceptive orthodontics to correct it.

During this clinical case, an eruption guidance appliance (EGA) was used in a 05-year-old patient (mixed dentition) for 07 months with satisfactory results.

Diagnosing Early Interceptive Orthodontic Problems – Part 1

Orthodontics

The constant growth and dental craniofacial development of the child requires that it be evaluated by an orthodontist at an early age. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that every child should be evaluated by an orthodontist before the age of 7.

Prevention is important in these cases, thus we avoid the development of malocclusions such as crowding, open bite, excessive overjet or overbite. Professional intervention is necessary to prevent these problems from worsening.

We share the first part of the Diagnosing Early Interceptive Orthodontic Problems course, which addresses the following topics: examination of mixed dentition, growth and development, posterior and anterior space maintainer, late eruption, retained and supernumerary teeth.

Severe early childhood caries: an integral approach

Dental Caries

It is considered early childhood caries, when the carious process affects one or more primary teeth in children under 06 years of age. This infection is of multifactorial etiology, transmissible and of rapid development.

Treatment will depend on the extent of the injuries and requires interdisciplinary management to achieve successful rehabilitation. In these cases the cooperation of the parents is necessary.
