Dental Manifestations Of A 4-Year Old Male Patient With Congenital Vitamin D Rickets: Review Of The Literature And Report Of A Case, Richard Nguyen, Robin Onikul, Brenda S. Bohaty, Neena Patel, Jenna Sparks, Amy Burleson

Posters

Patients that present with Vitamin D-resistant rickets may have abnormal tooth morphology, such as enlarged pulp horns that may extend into the dentino-enamel junction. As a result of this communication, there may be an increased chance of pulpal infection, resulting in spontaneous dental abscesses occurring without evident caries or history of trauma. The purpose of this poster is to report the case of a four-year-old patient who presented to Children’s Mercy Kansas City Dental clinic with chief concern for swelling of the face with unknown causes. The patient’s medical history was significant for congenital Vitamin D-resistant rickets. The poster presents …

Premature loss of a first primary molar can occur due to a multitude of reasons, including caries and infection. When this occurs and restoration of the affected primary tooth is not possible, the AAPD recognizes space maintenance as a “Best Practice” to prevent loss of arch length, width, and perimeter after extraction. However, reports suggest that with proper intercuspation of first permanent molars, space loss from premature loss of a first primary molar is minimal and space maintainers in that area may not be needed. This case report details an 8-year-old female who had significant space loss between the mandibular …

Effect Of Taper And Pitch On Nickle-Titanium File With Variable Cross Section To Its Cyclic Fatigue (In Silico Study), Yustika Chrysandra, Tunjung Nugraheni, Wignyo Hadriyanto 2024 Department of Conservative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Effect Of Taper And Pitch On Nickle-Titanium File With Variable Cross Section To Its Cyclic Fatigue (In Silico Study), Yustika Chrysandra, Tunjung Nugraheni, Wignyo Hadriyanto

Journal of Dentistry Indonesia

The geometric design of an endodontic file includes cross-sectional shape, taper, and pitch. NiTi endodontic files of OneCurve (MicroMega) are made of two variations of cross-sectional shape, that is, double-s shaped and triple helix. Various kinds of modifications were made to increase the resistance of the NiTi endodontic files from fracture. Cyclic fatigue is the most common factor that causes a fracture of the endodontic file. Objective: The purpose of this study was to obtain a NiTi endodontic file design that has the best cyclic resistance value based on its taper size and number of pitch. Methods: This …

Mathematical Modeling For Dental Decay Prevention In Children And Adolescents, Mahdiyeh Soltaninejad

Dissertations

The high prevalence of dental caries among children and adolescents, especially those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, is a significant nationwide health concern. Early prevention, such as dental sealants and fluoride varnish (FV), is essential, but access to this care remains limited and disparate. In this research, a national dataset is utilized to assess sealants' reach and effectiveness in preventing tooth decay, particularly focusing on 2nd molars that emerge during early adolescence, a current gap in the knowledge base. FV is recommended to be delivered during medical well-child visits to children who are not seeing a dentist. Challenges and facilitators in …


The Role Of School-Based Dental Sealing Programs And Fluoride Varnish In Preventing Caries, Gyuri Park 2024 Fort Hays State University

The Role Of School-Based Dental Sealing Programs And Fluoride Varnish In Preventing Caries, Gyuri Park

SACAD: John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activity Days

To examine the effectiveness of school-based dental sealant programs and fluoride varnish applied to the teeth, we analyzed existing research on both methods. We also reviewed data from past research to reason the need for state funds, a sealant metric, and the elimination of prior exam rules for hygienists to increase dental sealant programs in the United States. Both dental sealants and fluoride varnish applied to the molar were found to be effective in caries prevention in existing dental research.


Challenges And Implications Of Mandated Reporting To Child Welfare In Dentistry, Katheryn Goldman DMD, MPH, PhD, Daniel Pollack MSW, JD 2024 Yeshiva University

Challenges And Implications Of Mandated Reporting To Child Welfare In Dentistry, Katheryn Goldman Dmd, Mph, Phd, Daniel Pollack Msw, Jd

The New York State Dental Journal

Dentists are mandated reporters and are at the forefront of screening for child welfare referrals. The laws and systems surrounding reporting practice leave dentists working in pediatric settings with the responsibility of making a quick judgment about child maltreatment, with limited information, and sometimes limited training. Increased interdisciplinary collaboration and education on child welfare is necessary to better prepare and support dentists for practice with children who may present with suspected child maltreatment.
