In this issue of Compendium’s Clinical eBook Series, we present two articles that are intended to help clinicians improve their pediatric care. The continuing education (CE) article compares the use of traditional methods in pediatric dentistry with digital methods and explores how a digital workflow, including the use of CAD/CAM, has the potential to become the principal means of care when treating children. Our second article reports a systematic review of the efficacy of ketamine in pediatric sedation dentistry.  Download to earn 2 FREE CEU now!

(Simon) Jen-Yih Lin, DDS, MS; and Joel H. Berg, DDS, MS
This CE article discusses the use of the digital workflow in pediatric dentistry. While pediatric dentistry is lagging behind general dentistry for adults in adopting a digtial workflow, the use of digital dentistry is expected to continue to become more efficient and cost-effective for the treatment of young patients as the technology becomes increasingly refined. This is particularly so for impressioning. This article compares the use of traditional methods in pediatric dentistry with digital methods and explores how a digital workflow, including the use of CAD/CAM, has the potential to become the principal means of care when treating children.

LITERATURE REVIEW: Efficacy of Ketamine in Pediatric Sedation Dentistry: A Systematic Review
Samuel Oh, DDS; and Karl Kingsley, PhD
This article reports a systematic review of the efficacy of ketamine in pediatric sedation dentistry. Pediatric dentistry often involves patients with high levels of anxiety and fear, and many have had few positive dental experiences. This study investigated the clinical effectiveness of ketamine use in pediatric sedation dentistry through systematic review and analysis. The authors conclude that the use of ketamine, alone or in combination, can provide safe, effective, and timely sedation in pediatric patients through various routes of administration.
