This book is a comprehensive guide to pediatric dental fear/anxiety (DFA) and phobia that will provide practitioners with a full understanding of the etiology, prevalence, assessment, and management of these conditions. The coping styles of children when under stress are explored, with discussion of their relevance to the assessment visit and treatment allocation. Practical treatment techniques are comprehensively covered, from non-pharmacological behavioral strategies relevant for children with no or mild DFA to those approaches more appropriate for children with severe DFA/phobia. The importance of the use of language and communication skills to build rapport and allay anxiety is explored. Relaxation and hypnosis techniques are described, with guidance on how to introduce these to patients and their parents/carers. Techniques that help children cope when receiving injections are detailed, including systematic needle desensitization ; these provide practitioners with options to help resolve DFA and phobia regarding needles. Intravenous sedation, including the challenge of cannulation, is covered comprehensively. Furthermore, cognitive behavioral therapy is presented, with suggestion of practical self-help material when appropriate. The closing chapter looks to the future, discussing the barriers to and the changes required for the creation of more child-centered DFA services.

One of the most successful textbooks in pediatric dentistry, this expert resource provides superior, comprehensive coverage of oral care for infants, children, teenagers, and medically compromised individuals. Thoroughly revised material offers the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment recommendations based on current research, literature, and clinical experience. Now in its 8th edition, this classic text continues to offer in-depth coverage of all areas relevant to the contemporary science and practice of pediatric dentistry. Discussions of theories related to molecular biology of the eruption of teeth explain problems related to dental eruption and insight into future methods for their resolution. Incorporates the American Cleft Palate - Craniofacial Association guidelines for the most recent advances in treatment of cleft lip and palate. Follows academy-approved guidelines for the use of anesthetics in the treatment of the child patient as well as outpatient vs. in-patient procedures. Provides an overview of practice management including patient scheduling, insurance, and third party plans. Includes dentists' guide for documenting and reporting child abuse and neglect. Provides valuable information on cavity varnish, mercury toxicity, and glass ionomer cements. Provides indications for the use of implants to replace teeth (congenitally missing or lost as a result of trauma) in pediatric patients. An updated chapter on nutrition and health shows how food choices and patterns of eating initiated in childhood affect oral health and overall well-being at every stage of life. An increased emphasis on the genetic influence of root resorption associated with orthodontic treatment explores this hot topic. Coverage of new restorative materials examines their use in everyday clinical restorative practice. New coverage of tooth whitening for children and its indications responds to the growing popularity of cosmetic tooth whitening for people of all ages. An updated radiography chapter provides thorough information on digital radiography in children's dentistry. Increased emphasis on Early Childhood Caries and the Alternative Restorative Technique (ART) - a technique used to restore defective or carious teeth with minimal cavity preparation followed by placement of a fluoride-releasing material - reflects the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry's position on ART. The chapter on anxiety control and pain/analgesics includes specific dosage recommendations for managing anxious or fearful patients. The updated pharmacologic management chapter includes the latest information on sedation techniques in children. The updated trauma chapter includes new splinting recommendations for root fractures and the new Titanium Trauma Splint, cross-referenced to the International Association of Dental Traumatology Diagnostic and Treatment Guidelines, and categories for treatment of avulsed teeth.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Entwicklungspsychologie, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Angst ist ein Gefühlszustand, der gekennzeichnet ist durch negative Emotionen und körperliche Symptome von Anspannung. Der Begriff Angst leitet sich von dem lateinischen Wort „anxius“ ab und definiert einen Zustand von Erregung und Belastung.“ (ESSAU, Cecilia A., 2003) In der Wissenschaft wird die Angst in ihrer Ursache und Wirkung, sowohl gegenwärtig als auch zukunftsorientiert als eine komplexe Erfahrung verstanden. Sie äußert sich körperlich, kognitiv und im Verhalten. Angststörungen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen sind ernstzunehmende Störungen. Es gibt unterschiedliche Risikofaktoren auf der familiären Ebene, der kognitiven Ebene und im Bereich unterschiedlicher Lebensereignisse. Mit Lebensereignissen sind Augenblicke gemeint, in denen das Kind oder der Jugendliche eine extreme negative Erfahrung gemacht hat. Aufgrund dieser unterschiedlichsten Risikofaktoren gilt es als Lehrer, eine Sensibilität für Symptome möglicher Angstreaktionen zu entwickeln. Kinder werden ihre Gefühle je nach Alter direkt oder indirekt beschreiben können. In jedem Fall gilt es, Beobachtungen mit den Eltern bzw. anderen Lehrern abzugleichen und eventuell einen Therapeuten zur Behandlung aufzusuchen. Durch die Klassifikationsmöglichkeiten nach DSM-III und ICD-10 ist es heute möglich, nach einer genauen Diagnose und einer dazu passenden Behandlung weitere Folgen und eine Verfestigung der jeweiligen Angststörung zu verhindern.

Ausstieg aus der Glücksfalle: Besser leben als dem Glück nachjagen Kann das sein? Dass unsere Vorstellungen über das Glück uns unglücklich machen? Dieses spannende Umdenkbuch beruht auf einem bahnbrechenden Ansatz in der Psychologie: der Akzeptanz- und Commitment-Therapie (ACT). Die in kürzester Zeit erlernbaren Techniken haben ihre Wirksamkeit in vielen wissenschaftlichen Studien bewiesen. Die Folge: Sorgen und Stress müssen nicht mehr angestrengt bekämpft werden. Selbst wenn uns Schwierigkeiten begegnen, können wir ein tief erfülltes Leben führen. "Das Buch liegt bei mir am Nachttisch und ich befolge fleißig die Übungsanleitungen. Es ist klug, zugleich leichtfüßig und amüsant und bestimmt eine große Hilfe für viele Menschen. Ach was – für alle eigentlich." Konstantin Wecker
