Mental disorders have been shown to affect children's oral health. This study was carried out to investigate the oral health status, dental anxiety (DA), and behavior-management problems (BMPs) during dental treatment in 6- to 9-yr-old children with oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)/attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study and control(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The aim of present study was to investigate pulp-dentin complex reactions following direct pulp capping (DPC) with calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)2] and simvastatin as pulp-capping materials in the primary human molars. MATERIALS AND METHODS 120 primary molar teeth which had to be extracted for orthodontic reasons were randomly allocated(More)
PURPOSE The use of general anaesthesia (GA) has shown significant increase in child dental patients. This study aimed to assess whether behaviour management strategies can be the effective methods for decreasing the need for GA and its over-utilisation in paediatric dentistry. METHODS The patients (n = 240) aged 3-6 years old were selected from referrals(More)
Carious tooth surfaces can alter saliva in various ways. We investigated whether salivary parameters were affected by elimination of existing active dental caries in 99 children (age 6-12 years) with more than five carious tooth surfaces. Unstimulated saliva samples were obtained from each child, and salivary characteristics were evaluated. One month after(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the effect of Nd:YAG laser irradiation following casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) application on calcium and phosphate concentration and surface microhardness (SMH) of enamel surface in artificial white spot lesions of primary teeth. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eighty teeth with artificial(More)
BACKGROUND Assessment of procedural distress is essential at assisting children during invasive dental treatments. This study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of galvanic skin response as a measure for assessment of dental anxiety in children. MATERIAL AND METHODS 151 children, aged 5-7 years, participated in this study. Similar dental(More)

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to examine the efficacy of 3Mixtatin (a combination of simvastatin and 3Mix antibiotic) as a novel pulp capping biomaterial in DPC of human primary molars. METHODS In this randomized clinical trial, 160 primary molars from 83 healthy children aged 3-6 years were randomly allocated into four groups. Small traumatic non-caries(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Temperament has been suggested to be a predictive factor for the child's reaction to dental treatment especially in young ages. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between temperament and child behavior in relation to age in the dental setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this descriptive-analytical study, 190 children,(More)
Background and aims.
