HYPOMINERALIZED ENAMEL IN PRIMARY AND PERMANENT TEETH
David Manton (Australia)

Learning Objectives

  • > To understand the pathogenesis of hypomineralized defects of enamel
  • > To be able to diagnose demarcated and diffuse hypomineralization of enamel
  • > To understand treatment options for MIH and HSPM

Abstract

Developmental defects of enamel affect a significant proportion of the population, both in the primary and permanent dentitions. In the past two decades molar-incisor hypomineralization (MIH) has attracted attention, both clinically and in research, and more recently hypomineralized second primary molars (HSPM) have been identified as risk factors for MIH. Both HSPM and MIH may have a profound impact on the oral health of the affected child, with early diagnosis being important to allow therapies such as sealing and resin infiltration to be considered. The pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of HSPM/MIH affected teeth will be discussed.

DENTAL TRAUMA IN PRIMARY TEETH AND THE ROLE OF PAEDIATRIC DENTISTS IN PROVIDING CARE WITH MINIMAL INTERVENTION
María Teresa Flores (Chile)

Learning Objectives

  • > To recognize acute dental injuries requiring immediate treatment
  • > To describe conservative treatment strategies for traumatized primary dentition.

Abstract

The management of traumatic dental injuries in preschool children tends to be neglected. Few studies on the topic are evidence-based approaches to summarize the state of the art regarding treatment of TDI in primary dentition. With the aid of illustrative clinical cases, detailed guidance will be provided on how the dentist should manage the emergency visit to the clinic, where accurate examination and diagnosis are essential to define treatment priorities and to offer a safe, pain-free, and short stay.

RADIATION SAFETY IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
Juan F. Yepes (USA)

Learning Objectives

  • > To understand the basic principles of radiation in children
  • > Describe the fundamentals of radiation safety in the pediatric population
  • > Understand the radiation dose of different techniques used in children, including CBCT

Abstract

This lecture will cover the basic principle of radiation in dentistry with specific discussion in the safe use of radiation in children. Radiation dose and the safety of radiation in children will be discussed in detail, including the use of CBCT in children.
