Early Childhood Caries

Early childhood caries (ECC) is a severe disease of the primary dentition presenting a unique and intense pattern of decay, which can lead to severe pain, infection and loss of teeth, leading to psychologic implications for the child and his/her family. ECC can also affect the growth and development of the child.

The Paediatric Dentist can treat the disease with comprehensive management that includes preventive and therapeutic approaches, behaviour management, caries risk assessment and proper follow up. Dental restorative procedures can be performed in the dental office or in a hospital setting (operating room) depending on the severity of the case, the age and cooperation of the child. Preventive measures aim to stop the progression of the disease with daily oral hygiene, dietary instructions, topical fluoride and sealant applications. Caries risk assessment will dictate the frequency of follow ups.
In this presentation, the major disciplines of this disease and its treatment will be addressed. In addition, the latest approaches for clinically dealing with this disease will be discussed.

Behavior guidance of the paediatric patient

In order to provide quality dental treatment for children and adolescents, adequate levels of cooperative behavior are needed. Paediatric dentists have been leaders in the medical field in communicating with their young patients. Appropriate guiding of the child’s behavior is the result of the paediatric dentist’s knowledge and skill in using the applied communicative behavior guidance techniques, so as to develop a relationship of trust and eventually allay the anxiety of the child.

The dentist should continuously evaluate the patient’s response and integrate different approaches, according to the level of communication and cooperation that is being achieved.

In this presentation, the basic communicative management techniques will be discussed and the preconditions that are necessary from the part of the clinician for their successful use, as well as the factors influencing the effectiveness of these techniques . In addition alternative methods based on clinical experiences will be proposed.

To save or to extract primary teeth in severe ECC? Overcoming the Challenges

Early childhood caries (ECC) is a common dental problem in preschool children in many countries, and characterized by rapidly progressive decay, and in advanced untreated cases, a severe coronal destruction of the upper primary incisors and molars. To treat such cases, most of the general dentists prefer to extract the involved teeth with a severe destruction of crowns and/or apical pathosis. However, many parents nowadays are demanding for esthetic alternatives for their children and to save these teeth. To save or to extract badly decayed primary anterior teeth is a debatable issue, researches on this topic is surprisingly minimal and restorative management is based mostly on techniques adopted from current literature and the clinical experiences of experts which remain the main source of learning. Restoring those teeth to its previous function and esthetics presents a challenge to the pedodontists. The infected pulp can be treated with various materials which show promising results in treating the pathological conditions. The use of posts as an intra-canal support is advisable in cases with severe coronal destruction. Premade pediatric zirconia crowns were emerged as an excellent esthetic alternative in the last few years and it perceived interests among pedodontists all over the world. The clinical procedures and tips to overcome the challenges in restoring such teeth will be presented in this lecture with clinical cases showing both successes and failures in an interactive way with the audience.

Oral health in Childhood Obesity: Assesment of clinical, biochemical and microbiological profile

Obesity is strongly correlated with metabolic syndrome, which is characterized by insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Chronic low-grade inflammation develops in the obese state as a result of a complex interaction between adipocytes and immune cells that infiltrate adipose tissue. The secreted cytokines and adipocytokines are also implicated in risk of oral disease such as dental caries, gingivitis and periodontitis. In this presentation effects of certain clinical parameters and microbiological and inflammatory markers as potential indicators for dental caries and periodontal disease in obese pediatric population will be reviewed.

Childhood Obesity and Diabetes Type I, characteristics of oral health

Oral health status must be considered in the care of children with obesity and diabetes mellitus (DM). The health of these patients' mouths may have significant effects on their overall health and evolution of their disease. Periodontal disease (PD) and dental caries, are the two of the most common chronic diseases affecting obesity and DM patients. Obesity plays a role in the development of PD. Obesity is associated with gingivitis and its progression to PD. Patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) present an increased prevalence of gingivitis and PD. In diabetics PD develops at a younger age than in the healthy population, and worsens with the duration of the disease. The progression to PD has been correlated with the metabolic control of the disease as it is more prevalent and more severe in patients with poor metabolic control. PD negatively affects glycemic control and other diabetes related complications and there is a general consensus that treatment of PD can positively influence these negative effects. Dental carries are a multifactorial oral disease that is frequently detected in obese and diabetic patients. Insufficient tooth brushing and intake of sugary foods may result in greater detrimental oral effects. Maintaining oral health will prevent oral chronic diseases and ameliorate the consequences of chronic inflammatory processes. Thus, the care of obese and diabetic patients requires a multidisciplinary team with medical and dental health professionals.

Dental manifestations and treatments for children with metabolic bone disease

Metabolic bone disease in children includes many hereditary and acquired conditions of diverse etiology that lead to disturbed metabolism of the bone tissue. Some of these processes primarily affect bone and may result in bone pain and loss of height and they predispose patients to fractures. In this presentation oral, dental and radiographic findings of osteoporosis, rickets, osteomalacia (nutritional and hereditary vitamin D-dependent and hypophosphatemic), osteogenesis imperfecta, renal osteodystrophy, sclerosing bony disorders and other genetic bone diseases such as hypophosphatasia, fibrous dysplasia, skeletal dysplasia, juvenile Paget disease will be presented and the role of pediatric dentist of treatment methods will be discussed.

Psychosocial and clinical impacts following traumatic loss of primary incisors

Traumatic dental injuries (TDI) can result in the premature loss of primary anterior teeth due to an immediate avulsion, extraction sometime after the injury because of poor prognosis or late complications, or early exfoliation. There are a number of potential considerations or sequalae as a result of this premature loss that have been cited in the dental literature which include esthetics, quality of life, eating, speech development, arch integrity (space loss), development and eruption of the permanent successors, and development of oral habits. The presentation will provide a comprehensive review on the possible consequences of premature loss of maxillary primary incisors following TDI.

Pulpal aspects of TDI in primary incisors

Trauma to the teeth may have an immediate effect on the hard tissues (enamel and/or dentin) or the supporting tissues (the periodontal ligament). The pulp can be affected at the time of injury (luxation injuries, complicated crown fracture and root fracture) or it can appear as a late complication (pulp inflammation, internal resorption, pulp infection, pulp necrosis with and without infection, arrest of dentin deposition, pulp canal obliteration, tube-like mineralization and calcific metamorphosis). The condition of the pulp may be expressed clinically by coronal discoloration (yellow, dark or pink) and changes in the surrounding soft tissues (swelling, sinus track). Any treatment provided should be aimed to avoid or minimize the risk of damage to permanent successor and if possible preserve the injured primary incisor. Immediate damage to the pulp (pulp exposure) requires an immediate treatment (partial or cervical pulpotomy) that is expected to keep the remaining pulp vital and react by buildup of a dentin bridge. Some late complications have no harmful effect and can be left for follow-up. In cases of infection of the pulp, the pulp must be removed. This can be done by extraction or root canal treatment. The presentation will discuss the various conditions of the pulp and the relevant treatment for each condition.

Restorative alternatives in modern dentistry

Promoting better quality of life is the new paradigm in healthcare and it can not be otherwise in dentistry. Caries management has evolved from drilling and filling to a more holistic approach that includes the preservation of the tooth structure. This can be achieved through the proper use of modern restorative techniques and materials. Each clinical situation, however, has to be carefully evaluated before the most appropriate treatment option is defined. While composites still represent the standard choice for aesthetic problems, the treatment of caries and the promotion of health care demands alternative restorative materials. In many clinical circumstances, modern bioactive and biomimetic restoratives will certainly be the material of choice thanks to their ability to intimately interact with dental hard tissues promoting heath care in its most holistic sense. On the other side, more resistent materials may be the most suitable option whenever the tooth needs to be protected against crack propagation and fractures. But in this sense, what would be the limit between direct and indirect restorations? To get the most of each restorative treatment, it is crucial that the dentist can differentiate among the various kinds of modern materials, their indications, and how to use them correctly. These aspects will be presented in this lecture, as well as the latest developments in restorative dentistry.

Traumatic dental injuries in children with special health care needs: an overview

The prevalence of traumatic dental injuries (TDIs) in children with special health care needs (CSHCN) occurs more frequently than in children without disabilities which can have a direct and devastating impact on health and quality of life.  This could be related underlying physical and medical conditions, in addition to the well-known risk factors such as overjet, lack of labial sealing, previous trauma, bottle-feeding and age.  

Other than the well-known barriers to seeking treatment of TDI including being complex and expensive, it requires patient collaboration, which is often difficult  due to  severe motor and/or cognitive problems, necessitating the need to modify the conventional treatment plan. Behavioral barriers dictate a need for special techniques which the pediatric dentist is well-trained on..  . There are other barriers to treatment that include financial issues, poor dental awareness by parents, and unwillingness by dentists to accommodate such patients in their clinics.

The aim of this presentation is to shed some light on TDI in CSHCN and give an overview of its prevalence, risk factors, and treatment seeking behavior and barriers in light of the literature present and outline the gaps in the literature that need to be investigated in the future. In addition to present some examples on clinical treatment of different TDI in CSHCN focusing on restoration of function and esthetics, using different behavioral management approaches.

Metabolic bone diseases in children, diagnosis related to oral and dental manifestations

Metabolic bone diseases are a heterogeneous group of disorders effecting skeletal system and/or mineral or calcitrophic hormone metabolism which could be hereditary or acquired. Metabolic bone diseases include rickets, rickets like situations, metabolic and genetic diseases of the skeletal system and osteochondrodysplasias. However, all diseases share common features like, bone deformities, joint contractures, short stature, fractures and respiratory problems. Most of the genes expressed in bone are also expressed in teeth. Teeth are situated within bone sockets in oral cavity, for that reason, many metabolic bone diseases have teeth manifestation and need special dentistry care. Especially; osteoporosis, rickets, osteogenesis imperfecta, sclerosing bone dysplasias and other genetic bone diseases such as hypophosphatasia, fibrous dysplasia may have special teeth phenotype.

Calcium/Phosphorus Based Remineralizing Therapy in Dental Practice

The pathogenesis of caries involves a succession of demineralization and remineralization activities. At its most basic level, dental caries is the result of a process whereby the mineral constituents of the tooth are demineralized by organic acids produced by dental plaque bacteria.
Since it has been established that the caries process is a continuum, it is therefore possible to intervene at any stage with a therapeutic product or an intervention methodology. Including remineralizing treatments into routine dental care programs can strongly support public caries control programs.

This presentation aims to show medical benefits of using R.O.C.S. remineralizing systems to manage the most common diseases of hard dental tissue, such as caries, fluorosis and non-caries lesions.

The clinical cases and laboratory results will be presented to illustrate the mechanisms of R.O.C.S. REM Systems

The Challenging Bleeding Disorder: Dental Management

The aim is to overview the oral health aspects and management in hemophilia patients with specific considerations of the challenges when managing pediatric population. Literature review, internationally accepted guidelines, unpublished national data and Clinical experience were used. Coagulation factor abnormalities are the most common of inherited bleeding disorders with Von Willebrand disease, Hemophilia A and Hemophilia B account for 95–97% of all coagulation deficiencies. The two main oral diseases affecting patients with hemophilia are the same as for the rest of population: dental caries and gingivitis/periodontitis. Only a few studies concerning oral health aspects in hemophilia patients were carried out. Some controversy exists concerning caries prevalence in both primary and permanent dentitions in children with hemophilia. The dental management of the patients with bleeding disorders has improved with the adjunct use of local measures. However, Hemophiliac patients with inhibitors remain a concern. Due to that fact treatment of such patients becomes a challenge to most of the dentists, the population with inherited bleeding disorders remain on the symptomatic model of care which carry more obstacles for this specific population. More published studies in oral health status and management of hemophilia patient is needed as they constitute a small proportion of the whole population. The multidisciplinary approach to such patients remains the solution in the dental management with emphasis on local measures and the goal to establish a dental preventive home from early age is what will improve the quality of life by minimizing oral disease.
