BACKGROUND: Dental trauma is not uncommon. The initial management provided at the time of injury is critical in predicting prognosis. However, initial management depends on correct diagnosis. Recently an App named 'Injured Tooth' was made available to diagnose traumatic injuries to the teeth and supporting structures. AIM: To test the diagnostic ability of the Injured Tooth App compared with the conventional method of diagnosing traumatic injuries to the teeth. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was conducted at three different centres with 176 patients aged 0-15 years, having 201 injured teeth...

AIM: This retrospective university-based study assessed the survival and risk factors associated with failures of resin composite restorations performed in primary teeth. DESIGN: The sample was composed of 961 restorations from records of 337 patients (178 girls and 159 boys) attended in a university dental clinic. The restorations' longevity up to 48 months of follow-up was assessed using the Kaplan-Meier survival test...

BACKGROUND: Silver diamine fluoride (SDF) is a cariostatic agent used to adjunctively manage dental caries in high-risk groups. However, black staining is a frequently reported side effect following SDF application and influences the acceptability of this treatment. AIM: To evaluate the staining potential of SDF and the influence of the potassium Iodide (KI) application on the degree of black staining over time. DESIGN: Extracted carious primary molars were collected and sorted into pairs matched by tooth type, size and location of the carious lesion (n = 35)...

BACKGROUND: The outbreak of microcephaly between 2015 and 2017 in Brazil created an international public health emergency. AIM: This study sought to evaluate the chronology, sequence of eruption, and the presence of anomalies amongst children with microcephaly compared with normoreactive children. DESIGN: A comparative study of 108 children aged 0-2 years attending public services was conducted.
