Children Dentistry | Pediatric Dentistry – Dr. Philip Memoli – NJ

Childhood, when permanent (“adult”) teeth began to grow, is the best time to teach youngsters good oral hygiene habits and how to make wise nutritional choices. By learning how to prevent compromising the enamel, the hard substance that covers teeth, children can minimize and perhaps prevent the dental problems that plague many adults.

Paediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame. Hypo mineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay.

Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:

  • Baby teeth versus adult teeth
  • Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns
  • Contract-lateral tooth patterns
  • Decay clustering
  • Post-eruption susceptibility

A pediatric dental wellness program helps your child to learn the lessons of proper health maintenance and nutritional habits that prevent dental disease. You can bring your child for his or her first dental exam after all the baby teeth are in—generally, between ages three and five.

The Center for Systemic Dentistry works to address pediatric dental problems at the earliest stages, remedying the problem and preventing further dental or systemic damage later in your child’s life. Located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, we are committed to being the state’s leading dental practice that focuses on holistic, healing-focused dentistry

Faq Childhood Dental Problems And Pediatric Dentistry | Dr. Philip Memoli | Call (908) 464-9144

The prevalence of pediatric tooth decay—sometimes, aggressive decay—is rising, even among children who have nutritious diets that are low on sugar. Research points toward systemic problems, caused by factors such as radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, reaction to foreign proteins in foods, and/or improper mineralization (hypomineralization).

faq-childhood-dental-problems-and-pediatric-dentistry

There are specific patterns of tooth decay. The age of the patient is sometimes a factor in these patterns.

  • Baby teeth vs. adult teeth. Baby teeth are formed before birth; their development and health is subject to maternal nutrition (or malnutrition), so it is possible for a child to be predisposed to decay issues before ever eating or drinking. On the other hand, the health of adult teeth, which replace baby teeth during childhood, is dependent entirely upon an individual child’s nutrition and metabolism.
  • Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns. The anterior teeth generally develop first; problems with these teeth may have begun during a child’s first three years. Decay in the posterior teeth may indicate problems acquired after age three. Decay in both types suggest a longer-term problem.
  •  Contra-lateral tooth patterns. Decay in teeth on opposite sides of the mouth may indicate a system problem. Acupuncture shows that certain teeth are linked by the body’s meridians. The canine teeth in particular are considered “diagnostic” teeth, as they are linked to the liver meridian; systemic liver problems may present as decay in the canines.

What Are the Facts About Tooth Decay in Children? Dr. Philip Memoli

Tooth decay, known medically as dental caries, happens to every person in every age group. Children, however, are a special focus for the prevention of tooth decay. Outside of very rare instances in medical history, children are the only people who can grow new teeth. When the deciduous teeth (commonly called “baby teeth”) are lost during childhood, permanent (“adult”) teeth begin to grow in their place.

A competing theory about the cause of tooth decay considers it to be a manifestation of systemic disease; in other words, the problem originates elsewhere in the body, with tooth decay merely being a result of a larger, underlying health issue that contributes to insufficient mineralization in dentin (hypomineralization). Proponents of this causal theory stress that:

  •          Under the acid theory, any exposure to sugar in the mouth would raise susceptibility to decay.
  •          Decay is a complicated process that exhibits both local and systemic factors; the latter appears to be more important.
  •          Studies have shown that dentin contains a fluid that nourishes teeth and inhibits decay. Sugar consumption causes this fluid to stop, resulting in great likelihood of decay. Other studies have revealed a hormonal basis of mineralization and decay resistance.
  •          Some studies indicate that certain systemic factors, such as blood calcium and phosphate levels, affect the susceptibility to decay.

Our next article examines the patterns and possible causes of childhood tooth decay.

Taking Your First Steps Toward Safe, Comprehensive Amalgam Removal | Dr. Philip Memoli

At The Center for Systemic Dentistry, we employ a state-of-the-art protocol for safe removal of mercury amalgam. Our protocol offers maximum health protection, identifying and minimizing the risk of pain or sensitivity.

first-steps-safe-amalgam-removal-2.jpg

The comprehensive exam and the patient’s overall health status assist our dentists in determining if the patient is at risk of systemic reaction in the immune, detoxification, or elimination systems.

The next step in the treatment plan is the actual removal of old mercury amalgams and replacement with new, mercury-free amalgam. Our dentists select a restoration type and material for each affected tooth, based on the results of the comprehensive exam. There are four types of restorations:

  • Type I: Direct Restoration. For a patient with good dental health and a strong tooth, restoration is made in one visit with a direct filling material.
  • Type II: Inlay Restoration. A tooth that is mostly sound may still require an inlay to restore structural strength.
  • Type III: Onlay Restoration. A mostly sound tooth with a chewing surface (cusp) that requires restoration.
  • Type IV: Crown Restoration. For a structurally weak tooth that has loss of one or more cusps.

A safe, effective program for removal of mercury amalgam is the first step toward reversing the effects of mercury toxicity in your body. The Center for Systemic Dentistry in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, is committed to being the state’s leading dental practice that focuses on holistic, healing-focused dentistry. Dr. Philip Memoli is ready to help you recover your health so you can begin to lead a life free of mercury toxicity.

What Does the Research Say About Mercury Toxicity?

Any given person may be more resistant or more susceptible to mercury poisoning, depending on that person’s individual biology. Each body possesses three systems to deal with foreign substances: the immune, detoxification, and elimination systems.

research-and-mercury-toxicity-1

Diagnosis of mercury toxicity is extremely difficult. The question of mercury presence must first be addressed: what (chemical) form(s) of mercury are present, what tissues or organs are harboring mercury, and what is the extent of the damage caused? Additionally, there are no laboratory tests or biomarkers to indicate which of the systems (identification, detoxification, elimination) has been affected by mercury exposure.

What Are the Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity? Dr. Philip Memoli – New Jersey |USA

What Are the Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity?

Mercury, the only metallic element that is a liquid under standard temperature and pressure conditions, is widely utilized in many industries and processes. It has been used as a component of dental amalgam since ancient times and is found in fluorescent tubes and thermometers; it is also released into the environment as a result of industrial processes, such as smelting, mining, and energy production. Some mercury is introduced due to naturally occurring phenomena, such as volcanic eruptions.

symptoms-mercury-toxicity

Mercury toxicity symptoms are many; mercury poisoning takes a heavy toll on the body, affecting the neurological and central nervous systems, as well as the gastrointestinal, immune, neuromuscular, and cardiovascular systems. Major organs, such as the brain, liver, and kidneys, also suffer as a result of mercury toxicity.

A wide variety of symptoms is attributed to toxicity resulting from mercury amalgam. This list includes but is not limited to:

  • Headache, fatigue, loss of concentration, irritability, depression, insomnia, and dizziness
  • Diverticulosis, stomach cramps, bloating, loss of appetite, and gastrointestinal disturbances
  • Muscle fatigue and tremors, sciatic and chest pains, leg cramps, joint pain, and tachycardia
  • Oral health problems, such as bad breath, blisters/sores, tender teeth, and bleeding gums
