BACKGROUND: Dental practitioners desire non-pharmacological methods to alleviate anxiety, fear, and pain in children receiving dental care; high-quality evidence, however, is required to evaluate methods' efficacy. AIM: This study aimed to develop and validate an observation-based coding approach (paediatric dental pain, anxiety, and fear coding approach [PAFCA]) to evaluate non-pharmacological behavior management techniques for anxiety, fear, and pain. DESIGN: Objective (video-based) and subjective (self-reported) anxiety, fear, and pain data were collected from a pilot clinical trial evaluating animal-assisted therapy (AAT) in paediatric dentistry, in which 37 children aged 7-14 were assigned to AAT or control before dental treatment (restorations or extractions)...

BACKGROUND: Children with special healthcare needs (SHCN) often require specialized interventions due to their disabilities. Dental general anesthesia (DGA) is a treatment modality, which improves their access to care but concerns about repeated DGAs persist. AIM: This study investigated DGA utilization in children with SHCN and identified factors associated with multiple DGAs in Alberta, Canada (2010-2020). DESIGN: This retrospective population-based study used administrative data encompassing all children (<18 years) undergoing DGA in publicly funded facilities...

BACKGROUND: Surgical intervention for tongue-tie, or ankyloglossia performed by paediatric dentists can alleviate symptoms and improve functional abilities in infants and children. Despite widespread practice, there are currently no established clinical guidelines or consistent approaches for pre- and post-operative care of children. AIM: The aim of this study was to explore approaches to pre- and post-operative care for children with ankyloglossia having frenum surgery...

BACKGROUND: Given the relationship between overweight and obesity (OV/OB) and poor oral health in children, paediatric dentists are uniquely positioned to provide educational interventions to children with OV/OB during dental visits. AIM: To assess how an educational nutrition intervention delivered by dentists affected dental-nutritional behaviors and body mass index (BMI) percentile in children with OV/OB. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis was performed using data collected on 217 patients with OV/OB aged 6-11 years who received nutritional counseling during dental visits at a Federally Qualified Health Center from September 1, 2021, through September 30, 2022...

BACKGROUND: Planning the extent of paediatric dental treatment under deep sedation is highly important, as the duration of the sedation should be limited to approximately 1 h, and the amount of local anesthesia is limited by the children's body weight. AIM: To compare treatment plans estimated at initial examinations with actual dental treatments under intravenous deep sedation. We examined factors that could affect the differences. DESIGN: For this retrospective cohort study, data were collected from the medical records of all the children younger than 18 years who underwent dental treatment under intravenous deep sedation during 2019-2021 at the Department of Pediatric Dentistry...

BACKGROUND: Polymorphisms in genes related to enamel formation and mineralization may increase the risk of developmental defects of enamel (DDE). AIM: To evaluate the existing literature on genetic polymorphisms associated with DDE. DESIGN: This systematic review was registered in the PROSPERO (CRD42018115270). The literature search was performed in PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, LILACS, BBO, Cochrane Library, and in the gray literature. Observational studies assessing the association between DDE and genetic polymorphism were included...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: To compare two cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) analysis techniques for measuring tertiary dentin (TD) volume, density, and root length increase, after indirect pulp therapy (IPT) in young permanent teeth with conventional periapical radiographs. DESIGN: Comparative study design: Sixty-nine CBCT scans were taken initially (T1) and after 1 year (T2) of IPT. New CBCT analysis technique A, standardization, segmentation, and registration of T1 and T2 scans were performed using ITK-SNAP and 3D Slicer CMF to measure TD volume (mm3 ), density (gray-level intensity), and root length increase (mm)...

BACKGROUND: Effective pain management is crucial for the successful completion of dental procedures in children. Research has examined whether computerized intraosseous anesthesia (CIOA) could serve as a safe and viable substitute for the conventional inferior alveolar nerve block (IANB) technique in pediatric patients. This study investigates the efficacy of CIOA, aiming to determine its effectiveness as an alternative anesthesia method. AIM: This study compared the efficacy of local intraosseous anesthesia using a computerized device (QuickSleeper 5) to conventional IANB anesthesia on cooperation and pain perception in children, using a randomized controlled trial design...

BACKGROUND: Motivational interviewing (MI) is an approach to increase parental compliance to follow up and recall of their children. It has proven to be successful in motivating parents to adopt and maintain preventive child oral health behaviors. AIM: To assess the effectiveness of motivational interviewing on prevention strategies for parents of children who have received full-mouth dental rehabilitation under general anesthesia (GA). DESIGN: This is a parallel-arm randomized controlled trial...

BACKGROUND: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common rheumatic disease of childhood, and temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are involved in 39%-78% of patients. AIM: The aim of this systematic review was to assess the effectiveness of conservative approaches in improving TMJ arthritis in children and adolescents affected by JIA. DESIGN: PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science were systematically searched from the inception until February 25, 2024, to identify observational studies presenting participants with a diagnosis of JIA affecting the TMJ, rehabilitative approaches for TMJ arthritis as interventions, and clinical or radiological assessment of TMJ arthritis as outcome...
