Topic Description :

Alternative Treatment Approaches in Paediatric Dentistry


Handling challenging cases of Severe Early Childhood Caries, primary teeth with pulpal inflammation, Molar Incisor Hypo-mineralization (MIH), requires proper treatment planning and patient behaviour management which is considered the cornerstone of Paediatric Dentistry.

New promising techniques have been introduced to overcome the challenges in managing such cases including the Hall Crown, Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) and SMART (Silver Modified Atraumatic Restorative Technique). The aim of performing these new techniques is to increase child’s compliance and operator comfort along with sealing the carious lesions until the child is ready for further treatments in the future if required.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyse and correlate the clinical and radiographical signs of the presenting cases.
  • Select and apply the proper treatment plan that would consider the patient age, behaviour, medical condition etc.
  • Apply biological approach in caries management in the primary dentition.
  • Utilize the new treatment techniques in the daily dental practice.
  • Implement the appropriate behaviour management techniques.
