Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a technique that involves the activation of photosensitizer by light in the presence of tissue oxygen, resulting in the production of reactive radicals capable of inducing cell death. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of PDT on Streptococcus mutans in planktonic conditions, previously treated with different photosensitive concentrations of erythrosine, using halogen and LED curing unit as a light source. And we compared the effects of PDT on six strains of S. mutans isolated from oral cavity and reference strain. As a result, S. mutans was susceptible to the combination of hand held photopolymerizer (HHP) and erythrosine. The higher concentration of erythrosine in the presence of light irradiation induced greater effects in reduction of viability of S. mutans. Isolated S. mutans showed a significant reduction in bacterial counts of the groups submitted to PDT compared to the control groups. And they appeared to be similar or slightly lower antimicrobial effect compared with reference strain. However, the difference was not significant (p < 0.05). In conclusion, PDT using erythrosine as a photosensitizing agent and HHP as a light source could be an efficient option for diseases caused by S. mutans.

Children usually have varying degree of caries in primary anterior teeth, and treatment planning for each case prescribed by each dentist can also be varied. This survey was conducted to compare the preferred treatment method and restorative materials between general dentists and pediatric dentists in regard to the treatment of primary incisors. The questionnaires, composed of 18 questions were sent to 45 general dentists and 50 pediatric dentists. Among which 30 and 31 questionnaires were retrieved respectively. The collected data were analyzed by rate and the results were as follows: 1. For the teeth with initial caries without cavitation, general dentists showed the tendency to prefer restorative treatment(30%) or observation without any treatment(42%), whereas pediatric dentists prefer preventive treatment(76%). 2. The primary factor in choosing restorative materials by both groups was its manipulativeness. 3. For anterior esthetic restoration, general dentists seldom use the full-coverage restoration(13%) but resin restoration(75%), whereas pediatric dentists frequently used full-coverage crow(64%). 4. In the treatment of dentinal caries, pediatric dentist did not perform the treatment lesser than 2.0 years before the exfoliation (compared to 1.2 years of general dentist). 5. In the treatment of 1 year children, both pediatric and general dentists tend to select preventive procedure as first choice of treatment(84%, 52%). When treating primary incisor caries, it is shown that pediatric dentists are more interested in restorative/preventive treatment than general dentists are.

Dental professionals are exposed to various occupational risks, among which the problem of hearing damage has been newly revealed. There have been some researches reporting that noise occurring in a dental office exceeds the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) Standards. Especially, the pediatric dentists are repeatedly exposed to an additional noise source called the crying sound of children in addition to all kinds of noises from dental instruments. Accordingly, this study intended to investigate the noise environment likely to affect pediatric dentists and to examine the possibility of resultant hearing damages. The level of noise was measured respectively, when various dental instruments (ultrasonic scaler, high-speed handpiece, low-speed handpiece) are operated, when children are crying, and when both occasions take place simultaneously (from the distance of 30 cm) with a portable noise meter. And the daily duration of pediatric dentists exposed to the noise environment was surveyed. The results were compared with the standard value of noise threshold of NIOSH, OSHA, and that of hearing damage of CRA News letter respectively. Considering the intensity and exposure time, the noise environment of pediatric dentists exceeds the allowable noise threshold values. Even only one exposure to crying child was likely to lead to permanent hearing damage. Comparatively, pediatric dentists have a higher risk for occupational hearing damages, and some active measures are thought highly desirable to minimize it.

Purpose : This study was aimed to calculate effective dose from cone beam CT and compare effective dose from periapical and panoramic radiography for mesiodens. Materials and Methods : Upper anteiror periapical, panoramic radiography and cone-beam CT were taken for diagnosis of mesiodens. The effective dose were calculated by using an anthropomorphic phantom loaded with thermoluminescent dosimeters at the 23 sites related to sensitive organs. Results : The highest absorbed doses were received by the mandibular body, parotid gland and cheek from periapical, panoramic and cone-beam CT, respectively. The effective doses for periapical, panoramic radiography and cone-beam CT measured 2, 18 and 48
. Conclusion : Cone-beam CT, although providing additional diagnostic benefits, exposes patients to higher levels of radiation than conventional periapical and panoramic radiography.

This study was performed to establish the lateral cephalometric standards of Korean children for diagnosis of antero-posterior and vertical discrepancies of maxillofacial region. The lateral cephalometric radiographs were taken from 100 Korean children with normal occlusion, and then 15 measurements were statistically analysed. The results of this study were as follows : 1. Maxillary length of males was significantly greater than that of females (p < 0.05). There was strong correlation between maxillary and mandibular length (r = 0.625(M), 0.574(F)). 2. Lower facial height of males was significantly greater than that of females (p < 0.05). Furthermore, there was strong correlation between total facial height and upper facial height (r = 0.405(M), 0.417(F)) and very strong correlation between total facial height and lower facial height (r = 0.763(M), 0.787(F)). 3. All measurements for dento-alveolar relation showed no statistically significant sex difference. Maxillary length showed strong correlation with mandibular plane - lower incisor (r = 0.474(M), 0.426(F)) and mandibular plane - lower molar (r = 0.488(M), 0.499(F)).

In case of treating the functional type of anterior cross bite, removing the cause in early stage prevents from turning to skeletal type, leads to perform normal function, and has improved facial appearance. Functional Regulator III (FR III), one kind of the Functional regulator(FR)s suggested by R
nkel in 1966, applied to patients with the functional and skeletal anterior crossbite in early mixed, and permanent dentition. This appliance improves unbalanced power condition by blocking abnormal muscle-power effect, so that normal growth can be expected. In this case report, favorable results were obtained by selecting clinical cases of children in their early mixed dentition with functional cross bite. 1. FR IIIs were applied to patients with anterior crossbite for 5~6 months. Anterior crossbite patients were corrected favorably, nevertheless they didn't show any horizontal skeletal-changes by buccal shields. 2. Normal occlusion and esthetic facial contour were achieved from dental movement of maxillary and mandibular anterior teeth while the mandible rotates to posterior and inferior direction.

The odontoma is a hamartoma of odontogenic origin and consists of enamel, dentin, cementum and pulp tissue. Two types of odonotma are histologically recognized: complex and compound. Odontoma may be the cause of noneruptoin or impaction of teeth, formation of cyst and resorption of adjacent bone. The recommended treatment for an odontoma is conservative surgical excision. No propensity for recurrence has been noted. Peripheral odontoma is relatively rare lesion and shows the histological characteristics of an intraosseous odontoma. This report described a 3-year-old Korean girl with a firm gingival mass in the posterior mandibular area, which had been gradually enlarging over 18months. Radiographic examination showed a radiopaque mass but no evidence of underlying intraosseous lesion. Excisional biopsy was performed for the mass removal and histopathological examination. The result of histopathological study was identified as hamartous supernumerary tooth germ. Based on the clinical presentation, radiographic and histopathologic findings, we concluded that the final diagnosis was peripheral odontoma. For three years after surgery, there is no clinical sign of recurrence.

Class III malocclusion or anterior crossbite is commonly seen in Asian. This problem is easily recognized by dentists and parents. During the primary dentition period, anterior crossbite with functional shift and deep overbite could develop to skeletal protrusive mandible. So, early and proper diagnosis of anterior crossbite which needs prompt treatment is important. These cases showed the early management of crossbite with functional shift in primary dentition using intraoral removable appliance resulting in improvement of intermaxillary relationship. And I analyzed the positional change and the dimensional change during treatment with lateral cephalometric x-ray analysis. Our patients showed vertical dimensional change of lower anterior facial height and clockwise rotation which results crossbite correction in 1 year of treatment period.
