Self-mutilation of tongue is a type of self-injurious behavior. Ulcers of the lingual frenum in neonates with natal lower incisors are referred to as Riga-Fede disease. In this paper a case of Riga-Fede disease in a ten-month infant male with lower central incisors is reported. The ulcer resolved after the sharp incisal edges were smoothened and topical(More)
A case of microcephaly associated with traumatic ulceration to the ventral surface of the tongue (Riga-Fede disease) in a 12-month-old female is presented. To the best of our knowledge, such association has not been described previously. A conservative treatment regime was used, involving medical management, elimination of the sharp edges of the teeth and(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to document the mid-term effects of comprehensive dental treatment under general anesthesia (DTGA) on parent-assessed children's oral health-related quality of life (COHRQoL). A second aim was to examine some epidemiological factors associated with COHRQoL and treatment outcome. STUDY DESIGN A pretest-posttest design was(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this in vitro study was to determine the shear bond strengths (SBS) of Non-Rinse Conditioner (NRC, Dentsply) combined with Prime & Bond NT (PBNT, Dentsply), a 1-bottle adhesive. The null hypothesis tested was that the use of NRC with PBNT would not result in SBS different from those obtained with conventional phosphoric acid (PA)(More)
BACKGROUND The Demirjian eight-stage method is one of the principal methods used to quantify the degree of maturity from age 3 to 17. Aim.  The objective of this study was to compare the accuracy of dental age of different population-specific curves, derived using the Demirjian method, to the chronological age of Saudi children aged between 4 and 14.

AIM To examine the impact of comprehensive dental treatment under general anesthesia (GA) on oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) in children using short form versions of the Parental-Caregivers Perceptions questionnaire (P-CPQ) and Family Impact Scale (FIS). DESIGN A pretest/posttest study involved parents whose children (N = 67) were affected(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of music and white noise in the management of sensitive children treated using electronic dental anesthesia for restorative care. Sound (music and random noise) was used in combination with electronic dental anesthesia in 16 pediatric patients, who have been found to have low pain tolerances during(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the clinical performance of a single-bottle adhesive system with three restorative materials placed in children using the total-etch technique. One hundred thirty restorations were placed on conservative preparations in 36 children using the incremental placement technique in a clinical environment. The restorations were(More)
