Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Background & history of this topic: Craniofacial development in children and adolescents continues to be of major interest in the field of pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. New means of investigating dental, skeletal and craniofacial development in children and adolescents emerge constantly, and the old methods are resumed and reinterpreted. The process of tooth eruption is still incompletely understood and requires in-depth study, and dental anomalies are various and have important effects on the child's development. Additionally, the therapeutic methods for correcting dento-maxillary anomalies during growth are designed to influence and direct craniofacial development in an optimal and desired direction.

Aim and scope of the Special Issue: The purpose of this Special Issue is to inform readers and other authors about the different methods that can be used to influence harmonious craniofacial growth and development in children and adolescents. This Special Issue also aims to present the different methods of estimating the dental and skeletal age of children in various populations, while also investigating dental anomalies as well as eruption discrepancies in children and adolescents.

Cutting-edge research: New discoveries in the physiology and pathology of tooth eruption, new information regarding dental anomalies and their treatment, and the adaptation of different methods for estimating dental and skeletal age in various populations represent important information that can contribute to the literature. New information about dento-maxillary anomalies, as well as their treatment, would be extremely useful in everyday practice.

What kind of papers we are soliciting: This Special Issue is accepting research articles that present the epidemiology of dento-maxillary anomalies and eruption discrepancies. Original articles that investigate dental eruption, dental age, or skeletal age can be submitted as well. Review articles and case reports dealing with the previously mentioned topics are also welcome.
