The identification of agreed criteria for referral following the dental inspection of children in the school setting. (1/221)

AIM: To clarify the function of the school based dental inspection. OBJECTIVE: For representatives of the Community Dental Service, General Dental Service and Hospital Dental Service to identify an agreed set of criteria for the referral of children following school dental inspection. DESIGN: Qualitative research methodology used to establish a consensus for the inclusion of referral criteria following dental screening. SETTING: Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England. MATERIALS: A Delphi technique was used to establish a consensus amongst the study participants on the inclusion of nine possible criteria for referral following dental screening. All participants scored each criterion in the range 1-9, with a score of 1 indicating that referral of individuals with the condition should definitely not take place, and a score of 9 indicating referral should definitely take place. Referral criteria were accepted only if they achieved a group median score of 7 or more, with an interquartile range of three scale points, with the lower value being no less than 7. RESULTS: Four of the nine possible criteria met the agreed group standard for inclusion: 'Sepsis', 'Caries in the secondary dentition', 'Overjet > 10 mm', and 'Registered & caries in the permanent dentition'. CONCLUSION: It is possible to agree clear criteria for the referral of children following the school dental inspection.  (+info)

A pilot study of the efficacy of oral midazolam for sedation in pediatric dental patients. (2/221)

Oral midazolam is being used for conscious sedation in dentistry with little documentation assessing its efficacy. In order to accumulate preliminary data, a randomized, double-blind, controlled, crossover, multi-site pilot study was conducted. The objective was to determine if 0.6 mg/kg of oral midazolam was an equally effective or superior means of achieving conscious sedation in the uncooperative pediatric dental patient, compared with a commonly used agent, 50 mg/kg of oral chloral hydrate. Twenty-three children in three clinics who required dentistry with local anesthetic and were determined to exhibit behavior rated as "negative" or "definitely negative" based on the Frankl scale were assessed. They were evaluated with respect to acceptance of medication; initial level of anxiety at each appointment; level of sedation prior to and acceptance of local anesthetic; movement and crying during the procedure; and overall behavior. The results showed that the group randomly assigned to receive midazolam had a significantly greater initial level of anxiety for that appointment (P < 0.02), a finding that could clearly confound further determination of the efficacy of these drugs. Patients given oral midazolam had an increased level of sedation prior to the administration of local anesthetic compared with those given chloral hydrate (P < 0.015). No statistically significant differences were noted in any of the other parameters. The age of the patient was found to have no correlation with the difference in overall behavior (r = -0.09). These preliminary data warrant further clinical trials.  (+info)

Comparison of oral chloral hydrate with intramuscular ketamine, meperidine, and promethazine for pediatric sedation--preliminary report. (3/221)

Fifteen consecutive pediatric patients ranging from 3 to 5 years old were selected to receive one of three sedative/hypnotic techniques. Group 1 received oral chloral hydrate 50 mg/kg, and groups 2 and 3 received intramuscular ketamine 2 mg/kg and 3 mg/kg, respectively. In addition to ketamine, patients in groups 2 and 3 received transmucosal intramuscular injections of meperidine and promethazine into the masseter muscle. Sedation for the satisfactory completion of restorative dentistry was obtained for over 40 min on average in the chloral hydrate group, but completion of dental surgery longer than 40 min was achieved in groups 2 and 3 only by intravenous supplements of ketamine.  (+info)

Ketamine: review of its pharmacology and its use in pediatric anesthesia. (4/221)

The management of the uncooperative pediatric patient undergoing minor surgical procedures has always been a great challenge. Several sedative techniques are available that will effectively alleviate anxiety, but short of general anesthesia, no sedative regimen is available that will enable treatment of the uncooperative child. Ketamine produces a unique anesthetic state, dissociative anesthesia, which safely and effectively enables treatment of these children. The pharmacology, proposed mechanisms of action, and clinical use of ketamine (alone and in combination with other agents) are reviewed and evaluated.  (+info)

A community strategy for Medicaid child dental services. (5/221)

OBJECTIVES: The authors present second-year utilization data and first- and second-year cost data for a community-based program in Spokane County, Washington, designed to increase access to dental care for Medicaid-enrolled children from birth to 60 months of age. METHODS: The authors used Medicaid eligibility and claims data for 18,727 children 5 years of age and younger to determine utilization of dental care from January 15, 1996, through January 15, 1997. They also used accounting records from the agencies involved to calculate the first- and second-year costs of the program. RESULTS: A child in the ABCD program was 7.2 times as likely to have at least one dental visit as a Medicaid-enrolled child not in the program. Estimated costs per child with at least one dental visit (in 1995 dollars) were $54.30 for the first year and $44.38 for the second year, or $20.09 per enrolled child for the first year and $18.77 for the second year. CONCLUSION: Public-private joint efforts are effective in improving access to dental care for Medicaid-enrolled children.  (+info)

Oral care for children with leukaemia. (6/221)

OBJECTIVES: To review the oral care regimens for children with acute leukaemia, and to present an easy-to-follow oral care protocol for those affected children. DATA SOURCES: Medline and non-Medline search of the literature; local data; and personal experience. STUDY SELECTION: Articles containing supportive scientific evidence were selected. DATA EXTRACTION: Data were extracted and reviewed independently by the authors. DATA SYNTHESIS: Cancer is an uncommon disease in children, yet it is second only to accidents as a cause of death for children in many countries. Acute leukaemia is the most common type of malignancy encountered in children. The disease and its treatment can directly or indirectly affect the child's oral health and dental development. Any existing lesions that might have normally been dormant can also flare up and become life-threatening once the child is immunosuppressed. Proper oral care before, during, and after cancer therapy has been found to be effective in preventing and controlling such oral complications. CONCLUSION: Proper oral care for children with leukaemia is critical. Long-term follow-up of these children is also necessary to monitor their dental and orofacial growth.  (+info)

Safe orthodontic bonding for children with disabilities during general anaesthesia. (7/221)

General anaesthesia (GA) may be employed to overcome management difficulties in the orthodontic treatment of disabled children. This report introduces the application of a rubber dam as a useful aid for a high quality bonding and as an effective safeguard in bonding of brackets in general anaesthesia, in the handicapped in particular. GA was used in 12 patients, of a cohort of 49 disabled patients, to facilitate the placing of the fixed appliance. The first seven were bonded solely with the use of an oropharyngeal pack and a high velocity suction to prevent aspiration, and the last five additionally underwent placement of a rubber dam. The use of a rubber dam to facilitate the safe and reliable bonding of orthodontic brackets in handicapped children under general anaesthesia is highly recommended.  (+info)

Predicting population dental disease experience at a small area level using Census and health service data. (8/221)

BACKGROUND: Information on the dental disease patterns of child populations is required at a small area level. At present, this can be provided only by expensive whole population surveys. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of Census data combined with health service information to provide estimates of population dental disease experience at the small area level. METHOD: Clinical dental data were collected from a large cross-sectional survey of 5-year-old children. A preliminary series of bivariate linear regression analyses were undertaken at ward level with the mean number of decayed, missing or filled teeth per child (dmft) as the dependent variable, and the Census and health service and lifestyle variables suspected of having a strong relationship with dmft as independent variables. This was followed by fitting a multiple linear regression model using a stepwise procedure to include independent variables that explain most of the variability in the dependent variable dmft. RESULTS: All deprivation indicators derived from the Census showed a highly significant (p<0.001) bivariate linear relationship with ward dmft. The Jarman deprivation score gave the highest R2 value (0.45), but the Townsend index (R2=0.43) and the single Census variable 'percentage of households with no car' (R2 = 0.42) gave very similar results. The health and lifestyle indicators also showed highly significant (p<0.001) linear relationships with dmft. The R2 values were generally much lower than the deprivation-related Census variables, with the exception of the percentage of residents who smoked (R2 = 0.42). None of the health or lifestyle variables was included in the final dental disadvantage model. This model explained 51 per cent of the variability of ward dmft. CONCLUSIONS: The results demonstrate the strong relationship between dental decay and deprivation, and all of the commonly used measures of deprivation exhibited a similar performance. For this population of young children health and health services shelf data did not improve on the ability of deprivation-related Census variables to predict population dental caries experience at a small area level.  (+info)

National AAPD spokesperson Dr. Indru C. Punwani and AAPD members Drs. Kristin Elliot, Mira Albert and Mark Cabana are all included in a story on a childs first dental visit. The story appears in the Health and Wellness section of Hinsdale Magazine, which was posted on November 27.. The AAPD recommends that the child be seen by a pediatric or general dentist at the time the first tooth comes into the mouth, and no later than the childs first birthday, AAPD national spokesperson Dr. Indru Punwani said.. While caries is declining among adults, Punwani said it is definitely an expanding problem among children-especially those at a young age, who suffer from what is termed early childhood caries, or ECC.. Even though there has been a slowing down of tooth decay in adults due to fluoridation, dental caries in the young child-especially the pre-school child-continues to increase, he said. ECC has been reported to be initiated within a few months after the teeth erupt, with the principal cause ...

METHODS: Statewide Medicaid claims data were used to draw a random sample of children who received their FDV prior to six years old at a FQHC, were Medicaid-enrolled within the first two months of life, and remained continuously enrolled over the study period. Forty children from each of five FQHCs had their dental charts abstracted and merged with other Medicaid records and birth certificate data. The logarithmic age at FDV was regressed against several predictor variables ...
Parents are encouraged to convey their children for the first dental visit anytime after the childs teeth have started coming in. The most public average age to bring in a child for the first dental medical exam is around 18 months.

Discussion. In spite of the consensus that children should visit a dentist at the latest by the time of first tooth eruption (1), our study shows that less than 5% of children were taken to a dentist before the age of two in both cohorts. By the age of six, about 34.5 and 44.3% of children in RP and SL, respectively, had not yet visited a dentist and this proportion was still impressively high by the age of eight (RP=12.3% and SL=38.3%). It should be highlighted that this scenario occurred in 2004/2005, i.e., before implementation of the NOHP (11).. Brazil is a country with a health system that is a public-private mixture with free dental services for all individuals through the public Unified Health System (SUS in the Portuguese acronym) (27). However, created in 1988 and with a major expansion after 2003, SUS is still considered to be under development in an attempt to equitably cover the population in collaboration with the private sector (27).

Introduction: Understanding the preventive dental health care utilization of children is essential to reducing child dental disease rates in low income families. Previous studies have not examined the relationship between the mothers health status and the childs dental care utilization. The aim of this study is to examine the association between maternal health status and use of preventive dental care among children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP programs. Methods: We conducted a cross sectional study of children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP programs. A sample of 88,460 children was obtained from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Childrens Health (NSCH). We used multivariable logistic regression modeling (SAS 9.3) to estimate the adjusted odds ratio for having at least one dental visit in the past 12 months associated with self-reported maternal health. We statistically adjusted for childs age, sex, maternal education, family structure, and parental satisfaction with the childs health care provider.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) suggests that parents should make an initial well-baby appointment with a pediatric dentist approximately six months after the emergence of the first tooth, or no later than the childs first birthday.. Although this may seem surprisingly early, the incidence of infant and toddler tooth decay has been rising in recent years. Tooth decay and early cavities can be exceptionally painful if they are not attended to immediately, and can also set the scene for poor oral health in later childhood.. The pediatric dentist is a specialist in child psychology and child behavior, and should be viewed as an important source of information, help, and guidance. Oftentimes, the pediatric dentist can provide strategies for eliminating unwanted oral habits (for example, pacifier use and thumb sucking) and can also help parents in establishing a sound daily oral routine for the child..

Think of a pediatric dentist as the pediatrician of dentistry. Like pediatricians, pediatric dentists are specially trained to treat the specific needs of infants, children and teens. Pediatric dentists are recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) as dental specialists; they complete four years of training plus two years in residency. For these reasons, the pediatric dental office is one of the most important resources for moms and dads. Its where parents can rest assured that their kids will receive the best in pediatric dental care.. Beyond their dental expertise, pediatric dentists also know how to interact with kids. This can be a huge help, especially during your childs first dental visit or if your child has dental anxiety. And most pediatric dental practices are designed just for kids. While each pediatric dental office is different, a kid-friendly environment usually means plenty of toys and other activities, pillows & blankets and goodie bags.. Consider a Kids ...
More than 40 percent of U.S. children will have tooth decay before the age of five. CHICAGO (Feb. 22, 2010) - Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease, according to the U.S. Surgeon General. This February, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) encourages parents and caregivers to Get it Done in Year One. Visiting a pediatric dentist by the time the first baby tooth appears enables the child to begin a lifetime of preventive dental care, helping to minimize tooth decay and cavities. In fact, studies show that dental costs for children who have their first dental visit before age one are 40 percent lower in the first five years than for those who do not see a dentist prior to their first birthday.. Baby teeth are vulnerable to tooth decay from their very first appearance, on average between the ages of six and 12 months. Pediatric dentists specialize in caring for these tiny teeth, imperative for proper speech development and nutrition. The specialized care ...

Practitioners in this study reported a high level of referral activity. More than 90% reported referring infants and toddlers for dental care as part of their regular practice, and of these, close to 80% refer for elevated risk of disease or for cases without overt tooth decay but for which they believe the child might have a few teeth in the beginning stages of decay. These findings suggest that many physicians included in this study not only refer for obvious conditions such as an abscessed tooth but also practice risk-based referral in which children who they believe to be in the early stages of dental caries or have risk factors that place them at risk of disease are referred.. Professional guidelines on the recommended age of the first dental visit of some medical organizations are not in agreement with some dental organizations. The disagreement centers on the care of children younger than 3 years, children who have exceptionally poor access to dental care. The findings from this study ...
This analysis revealed a statistically significant association between adherence to the periodic well-child visit schedule during the first 2 years of life and fewer potentially avoidable hospitalizations among a birth cohort of Medicaid-enrolled children in 3 states with large numbers of Medicaid-enrolled newborns. The association was present regardless of race or ethnicity, level of illness, gender, level of poverty, or local resources. Our results help substantiate conventional wisdom that has fueled efforts to ensure that poor children receive early periodic preventive care. The results of this research are consistent with findings from 2 other studies. A mid-1960s experiment that offered primary care to a group of poor families found that free comprehensive services increased physician use and reduced hospitalizations, and an evaluation of a Medicaid managed care program in Maryland found that the number of primary care visits was inversely associated with avoidable hospitalizations.14,,25 ...

HEALTH bosses agreed to investigate the possibility of adding fluoride to the water supply in the north west at a meeting last week.. The board at NHS Warrington accepted a paper that asked them to request further investigation into the feasibility of the scheme.. For now, all that means is that the Strategic Health Authority, (SHA), will look into the possibility of adding the chemical.. This is not a decision on whether we support it; it is a very contentious issue and we appreciate that, said chairman, John Gartside.. The board was told at its monthly meeting that the decision lay with the SHA and not any one primary care trust.. It is only if and when the SHA decides to do it that this PCT will say whether it supports it, said Dr Keith Milsom, a public health dentist..
