What Are the Stages of Dental Disease in Children?

The diagnosis of dental disease in children occurs in five stages. The treatment protocol for your child is determined by the assessed stage of the problem(s).

Examines the underlying causes of a child’s dental problems. These may be one or more of five types:

  • Dietary. Does the child receive the essential nutrition necessary for proper oral health and tooth formation? Dos the child consume a raw-food or vegetarian diet?
  • Biological terrain. The child is assessed for a proper ratio of serum calcium and phosphorus, as well as osmolarity (sodium chloride level).
  • Functional issues. Health problems in this part of the diagnosis may include maldigsetion, acidosis, malabsorption, leaky gut, and stress on acupuncture meridians.
  • Hormonal issues. Imbalance or improper levels of certain hormones can affect dentin or the blood calcium level. Suspect sources of hormonal problems are the hypothalamus, the parathyroids, and sex hormones.

Professional Holistic Pediatric Dentistry – Holistic Dentistry

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.

Pediatric 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

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.

Emergency Dental Treatment Mercury Toxicity Treatment – Dr. Philip Memoli

Many patients have heard the term “Mercury toxicity associated with fillings but still have many questions about it: what is it, am I affected by it, and what can be done to re-mediate it?

The question of whether or not Mercury amalgam fillings contribute to mercury exposure is hotly debated.
  • Many dentists believe that amalgam fillings, in use for more than 150 years in this country, are safe and that only a small percentage of the population shows sensitivity to mercury in fillings. This is the position of the American Dental Association (ADA); however, the organization also supports ongoing research to assure the safety of all materials used in dental work.
  • Many toxicologists associate great risk with the use of mercury amalgam fillings. One researcher, Andrew Cutler, has argued that “millions of people are being poisoned by mercury compounds the medical profession is exposing them to.”

Governmental entities have issued certain guidelines regarding the use and discarding of mercury in dental facilities. For example, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection operates the Dental Amalgam Program,which contributes to significant reductions in the discharge of mercury into the environment.

The comprehensive protocols established by The Center for Systemic Dentistry ensure a thorough process for safe amalgam removal. Located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey.

The Center for Systemic Dentistry will work with you to determine the best course of treatment to safely remove your existing mercury amalgam.

Find The Best Treatment of Safe Removal Mercury Amalgam in Berkeley Heights, NJ

Many patients have heard the term “mercury toxicity” associated with fillings but still have many questions about it: what is it, am I affected by it, and what can be done to re-mediate it?

Mercury toxicity, also called mercury poisoning, is caused by a high level of mercury in the body. The presence of mercury has been shown to cause a wide range of chronic and acute health problems affecting all major systems in the body.

Among the latter, common arguments against the procedure include:

  •          All the mercury has already leaked out.
  •          Additional tooth structure will be lost by removing existing dental work.
  •          The patient will be exposed to toxic levels of mercury vapor being released as the fillings are drilled out.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection operates the Dental Amalgam Program, which contributes to significant reductions in the discharge of mercury into the environment. Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issues compliance standards for medical and dental offices regarding the use of mercury; however, OSHA standards regulate the protection of dental staff but not patients.

The Center for Systemic Dentistry will work with you to determine the best course of treatment to safely remove your existing mercury amalgam.

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.
