Special Issue Information

Oro-facial problems interfere with a child’s normal lifestyle by impairing mastication, deglutition, and aesthetics and causing pain and discomfort. The pediatric dentist is concerned with restoring or replacing hard and soft tissues and maintaining optimum oral health, functions, aesthetics, and comfort in children. The continuous evaluation in pediatric dentistry brought many changes in clinical practice. The interest in the early detection of orofacial and dental problems with imaging and diagnostic aids has been growing in recent decades. The comprehensive treatment for children should be a built-in close response to the child’s complex oral conditions, psychological state, and willingness to undergo prolonged treatments. In short, clinical pediatric dentistry can be best viewed as the prevention of the worsening of disability, treatment of injured or ailing patients, and restoring/maintaining optimal oral health and functions. There are various difficulties in managing dental problems, from simple tooth decay to complex oral rehabilitation. Clinical pediatric dentistry should address the difficulties in the oral cavity and the psychosocial situations of growing children. This Special Issue invites systematic reviews, meta-analyses, recommendations, policy guidelines, original research manuscripts, case reports, narratives, scoping reviews, technical reports, and short communications to enhance contemporary research in clinical pediatric dentistry.

Successful outcome of pulp therapy depends on good chemomechanical preparation of the canals. This is completed with the help of various upcoming rotary and hand files. However, during this preparation, there might be an apical extrusion of the debris which may result in postoperative complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the number of debris apically extruded during canal preparation using two different pediatric rotary file systems and conventional hand file systems in primary teeth. 60 primary maxillary central incisors that were extracted due to trauma or untreated dental caries with no signs of resorption were taken. Canal preparation was executed using three different file systems: Group A: Group A hand K file system, Group B Kedo S Plus, Group C Kedo SG Blue. For each of these files using the Myers and Montgomery model, the pre- and post-weight of the eppendorf tube was assessed to quantify the number of apical debris. The maximum extrusion of apical debris was noticed with the Hand K-file system. The least debris was noticed in the Kedo S Plus file system. Statistical analysis revealed that there were highly significant differences in apical extrusion and debris when comparing hand files and rotary files and also between the two rotary files used. Apical debris collection is an unavoidable outcome of canal instrumentation. Among the file systems compared, rotary files had lesser extrusion when compared to hand files. Among the rotary files, Kedo S plus showed normal extrusion compared to SG Blue. Full article

Title: Retention rate of Prefabricated Zirconia Crowns Cemented with Self-Adhesive Resin on Primary Teeth: A retrospective cohort Study
Author: Alrashdi
Highlights: The self-adhesive resin cement can be an option for PZCs cementation with a reasonable success rate not less than other cements like GIC, RMGIC, or Bio ceramic cement.
