Presentations of Routine Dental Interventions in Children over a Six-Year Period

CONCLUSION: The present study points out the implications of the COVID-19 outbreak and Lebanon's economic collapse on children's dental status, with the number of children receiving dental care dropping remarkably. A decrease in all types of dental procedures was noted in mixed dentition, whereas an increase in dental treatments related to aggravated carious lesions was reported in primary dentition. More medical and financial aids are required to encourage and support parents' attitude towards children dental care during unprecedented crises.PMID:35615224 | PMC:PMC9126680 | DOI:10.1155/2022/9285893
