THE JOURNAL OF THE KOREAN ACADEMY OF PEDTATRIC DENTISTRY, volume 2, issue 1, 1975, Pages 13~17
The purpose of this investigation was to make a comprohensive study and evaluation of the oral health of a group of orthopedically handicapped children by considering the DMF rate, occlusion, and oral hygiene status of 194 orthopedic children. The obtained results were as follows. 1. The DMF rate of over all examined children was 59.85%, and when the four orthopedic groups were compared among themselves, it was found that Cerebral Palsy group had a significant higher DMF rate than that occuring in any of the remaining groups. 2. Total prevalence of malocclusion was 50. 10%, and it was found that Cerebral Palsied children had a significantly higher incidence of malocclusion (
), and that Cerebral Palsy group showed a significantly different distribution of higher percentage of Class II occlusions from that observed in the remaining groups. 3. In dental plaque index, Average plaque index per tooth was 2.09. Plaque index of each group was as follows A) Cerebral palsy: 2.35 B) Poliomyelitis: 2.24 C) Tb Group: 1.65 D) miscellaneous Group: 1.72.

The third year dental caries survey of "K" primary school children was performed in June 1975, and evaluated their transitional trends of three consecutive past years, statistically. 1,421 children (782 boys and 639 girls) 6 to 12 years of age was surveyed at the third year. The results were as follows: 1) The average df person rate was 89.97%(boy 88.19%, girl 92.42%). It showed significant increment(P<0.005) compare to 1973 and nonsignificant to 1974. 2) The average dft index was 3.82(boy 3.76, girl 3.90). It showed nonsignificant difference compare to 1973 and 1974. 3) The average DMF person rate was 66.57%(boy 63.84%, girl 69.89%). It showed significant decrement(P<0.005) compare to 1973 and 1974. 4) The average DMFT index was 2.03(boy 1.88, girl 2.20). It showed significant decrement(P<0.005) compare to 1973 and 1974. 5) The sexual difference of df and DMF person rates, female showed a little higher value than male. It showed significant difference(P<0.005). 6) The increment of df and DMF person rates, the 7 to 8 year group showed the most and the 7 to 8 year group showed the least.

We observed the orthopantomography taken by 800 children who came to our pedodontic department, School of Dentistry, S.N.U. and also got the incidence of supernumerary and congenital missing teeth as follows. (1) The children who had supernumerary or congenital missing teeth were 9.75% of all. (2) In incidence of supernumerary teeth, male was 0.50% higher than female. (3) Incidence of conginital missing teeth was 7.0% and male was 1.0% higher than female. (4) Incidence of congeintal missing teeth was mainly arised from mandible.

The study was performed to evaluate the Parent's knowledge and attitudes concerning the dental health of their children. A questionnaire consisting of 17 questions was given to each of the 664 parents by their children who are attending in primary school and was completed by them. The collected information from the questionnaire was analyzed by the visits to dental clinic, age and education. The results obtained from this study are as follows: 1) The more educated parents were more interested to the dental health of children. 2) In the know ledge concerning the dental health of their children, the parents who were more educated and had visited the dental clinic gave the better. responses. 3) There were no clear differences in age groups in the knowledge and attitudes on their children's dental health. 4) The reason for first visiting the dental clinic was dental treatment 43.2%, toothache 35.4%, for the purpose of oral examination 21.2%, and others were 9.2%. 5) 13.1% of the parents who had visited the dental clinic couldn't or didn't follow the recommended treatment because of economic difficulty 53.3%, lack of time 25%, lack of understanding of child's dental needs 18.3%, and other reasons were 3.3%.

The conserative treatment of the necrotic and infected primary molars is often necessary in order to avoid extractions which may lead to inability to masticate or loss of space and subsequent problems concerning the development of the occlusion in the permanent dentition. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical significance of the conservative treatment of the infected primary molars with necrotic pulps employing the formocresol pulpotomy technique same as in vital teeth and surgical intervention in the cases with a parulis, fistula or cellulitis. The materials consisted of 25 primary molars of 9 boys and 4 girls ranging in age from 4 to 7 years. This study included clinical and radiographic observation at 3-month intervals postoperatively. The following results were obtained. 1. Clinically, 20 cases of 25 were successful, exhibiting no clinical problems such as fistula, mobility, toothache and tenderness to percussion, etc. 5 cases were regarded as failures. 2. Radiographiclly, 14 cases revealed normal features, in 6 cases slight rarefaction was observed in the periapical and interradicular region, and marked periapical and interradicular rarefaction was observed in 5 cases. 3. Marked bony deposition was observed in the periapical and interradicular regions in all the remainder except for 5 failurese. 4. Pathologic root resorption was observed in 2 cases. 5. No alveolodental ankylosis was observed. 6. Regeneration of the dental sac of the permanent tooth was observed in 1 case of 2 cases which had revealed loss of the dental sac.
