A-12year-old boy visited the clinic with chief complaint of anterior maxillary trauma. He was diagnosed with first degree mental retardation and cerebral disorders. By clinical and radiographic examination, intrusion of maxillary central incisors were found. The intrusion was not severe, teeth were luxated with a slight force and the prognosis was followed. After the first year, external root resorption was seen radiographically. Due to difficult behavior management, one visit root canal filling with OrthoMTA(BioMTA, Korea) which is known to generate of cementum and periodontal ligament was planned along with general anesthesia. OrthoMTA was filled from the apex to 1-2mm below cervical area and composite resin used for crown restoration. 6 months after, further resorption, discoloration and mobility was not found. This case is currently checked yearly and further research is needed for inflammatory root resorption and ankylosis.

Dental extraction is potentially stress-inducing in many disabled patient. The body's response to dental stress involves the cardiovascular system(an increase in cardiovascular workload), the respiratory organ and the endocrine system(change in metabolism). To minimize the stress, the stress reduction method was established. The obtained contents were as follows: (1) Recognize the patient's degree of medical risk, (2) Complete medical consultation before dental therapy, (3) Schedule the patient's appointment in the morning, (4) Monitor and record preoperative and postoperative vital signs, (5) Use psychosedation during therapy, (6) Use adequate pain control during therapy, (7) Short length of appointment : do not exceed the patient's limits of tolerance, (8) Follow up with postoperative pain/anxiety control, (9) Telephone the risk patient later on the same day that treatment was given. Though the stress reduction method above was applied to the dental extraction in disabled patients with the advanced infected teeth, the complications(syncope, shock, bleeding & infection, etc.) may be occurred. For prevention of complications associated with the extraction, the authors treated the advanced infected teeth with endodontic drainage and incision & drainage before extraction. The final extraction and wound closure were then done after about 3 weeks.

Angelman syndrome(AS) is a rare genetic neurological disorder. The main clinical characteristics of this syndrome are delayed neuropsychological development, intellectual disability, speech impairment, jerky movements especially hand-lapping, frequent laughter or smiling. AS is a classic example of genetic imprinting in that it is usually caused by deletion or inactivation of genes on the maternally inherited chromosome 15. The syndrome has oral manifestations such as diastemas, tongue thrusting, sucking/swallowing disorder, mandibular prognathism, frequent drooling, and excessive chewing behavior. The purpose of this paper is to describe the interesting aspects of the dental treatment of a childe with AS.

Achondroplasia is one of the most common types of dwarfism and is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. Clinical features of achondroplasia include disproportionate short stature with normal trunk length, shortening of the extremities, bowing of the lower extremities, short stubby trident hands, spinal stenosis and lumbar lordosis. Characteristic craniofacial features include macrocephaly, prominent forehead, depressed nasal bridge, maxillary hypoplasia, otolaryngeal system dysfunction, and foramen magnum stenosis. These characteristics may lead to number of complications including hydrocephalus, apnea, upper-airway obstruction, otitis media, sinusitis and dental malocclusion. Apart from these features, the affected children have good general health and normal intelligence. Dentists should be aware of the clinical characteristics of achondroplasia and the complications that may arise as a result of this disorder. This case report is to present dental treatment of a patient with achondroplasia under general anesthesia and discuss special considerations.

Noonan syndrome (NS) is a developmental disorder characterized by dysmorphic facial features in association with short stature, mental retardation and congenital heart disease. NS may be sporadic or inherited as an autosomal dominant or recessive trait. The children with NS usually have ocular hypertelorism, downslanting palpebral fissures, low-set ears and a webbed neck, chest deformity. In addition, oral features include micrognathia, high arched palate, dental malocclusion, dental anomalies and rarely, cleft palate. The phenotype of NS bears similarities to that of Turner syndrome. However, NS occurs in both males and females with a normal sex chromosome 46, XX and 46, XY constitution. This case presents the intermittent treatment of an 8-year-old girl who was referred from a local clinic for the extraction of supernumerary teeth and treatment of dental caries. The focus of this case report is the oral aspects on NS and particularities of the dental treatment in subjects affected by this genetic disease.

In Korea, the elderly is defined as the person aged over 65 and the disabled is defined as the person who is registered with Ministry of Health and Welfare. In 2008, the elderly with disabilities was about 770,000. Korea was already poised for an aging society in 2000 and is ahead of and aged society in 2018 and a super aged society in 2026. So, the number of the elderly with disabilities will continue to grow. Various oral diseases can be seen in the elderly with disabilities due to the systemic disease and impaired self oral care, in addition to the physiological aging. Particularly, we should be care for the aspiration pneumonia, which is the major cause of the death of the elderly. As a professional for the special care dentistry, we should understand the general and dental, individual characteristics of the elderly with disabilities and do proper oral care and treatment. Thereby, the quality of life of the patients might be improved.
