Special Issue Information
Pediatric dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of children, from infancy through to their teen years. Dental diseases are very frequent in the pediatric population; they range from caries to malocclusion to including very rare and complex diseases of multidisciplinary interest. Pediatric dental health includes diagnostics, clinical and instrumental factors, pathophysiology, and preventive as well as therapeutic aspects of dental pediatric patients, such that pediatric patients are a special group, one which often poses challenges in daily practice.
New technologies, such as digital devices, are able to enhance the effectiveness of the diagnostic process and increase the spectrum of detectable pathologies, dimorphisms, and dysfunctions in the orofacial region, as well as provide new clinical approaches to comprehensive craniofacial and temporomandibular disorders.
Recently, the extension of methods such as EMG, CBCT, and MRI to the dental field is receiving a lot of interest in the medical field. Telemedicine (teledentistry in the field of oral pathology) is a rapidly evolving healthcare delivery mechanism via hardware and/or software through which consultation, medical assistance, and information can be communicated over computer networks. We are all called upon to keep up with the developments that are occurring simultaneously in dentistry. Digital dentistry provides quantifiable benefits in terms of quality, time savings, and labor cost reductions in all fields of dentistry (orthodontics, prosthodontics, oral surgery, oral medicine, temporomandibular disorders, and restorative dentistry). The aim of this Special Issue is to provide available evidence-based data of innovative advances and knowledge in oral and craniofacial diagnoses, as well as to provide a new approach to the management of craniofacial disorders through upcoming diagnostic and therapeutic technologies.
