Holistic Pediatric Dentistry in Berkeley Heights, NJ | Dr. Philip Memoli

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. Hypomineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay. The systemic theory of decay suggests that other factors become relevant only after hypomineralization has begun.

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

Poor jaw development in children is generally caused not by genetics but by poor diet, mineral imbalances, interrupted regulation of jaw growths. Breastfeeding may improve a baby’s jaw growth and development; however, mother’s milk that is insufficiently nutritious may be factors in systemic problems in that contribute to tooth and jaw problems later in childhood.

We are constantly being exposed to various toxins from our environment, such as heavy metals, chemicals, radiation, and acids. When these toxins enter our body, they may exert adverse effects which can result in symptoms or disease. As a result of our unique identity, called “biological individuality,” each of us reacts differently to a toxic exposure. Those who remain unaffected are called resistant; those who are affected are termed susceptible.

In order to understand resistance and susceptibility, we need to be familiar with the system designed to protect us and prevent disease. This system is composed of three sequential parts:

  1.     Identification: The Immune System carries out this process.
  2.    Neutralization: The Detoxification System performs this task
  3.    Elimination: The Elimination System colon and kidneys work to remove toxins

Since the health of the individual is crucial to his or her survival, the body uses these three systems. It also provides a back-up or “fail safe” plan in the event one part fails. The back-up not only assists the individual parts, but allows these parts to assist other systems. We refer to this as “compensation.”

Alternatives to A Root Canal Treatment – Dr. Philip Memoli

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?

A root canal-treated (RCT) or root-filled tooth is one in which the dental nerve, commonly called the pulp, is intentionally removed and is filled with an inert material called gutta percha.

root-canal-alternative-Holistic-Dentistry

Once an RCT is performed, the tooth must be restored with a post and a crown. These will strengthen the tooth and prevent a crack or fracture from developing after treatment. A good analogy is a tree branch. When it’s alive, it flexes or bends when pressure is applied. On the other hand, a dead branch, like an RCT, will break under the same stress.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF ROOT CANALS?

The pro of a root canal is obvious: the painful or dead tooth is treated and extraction is avoided. But we must ask two key questions before starting a root canal.

  •         Can the tooth be restored?
  •         Can a predictable RCT be performed, or are there risks for a poor result?

Research has found four major causes of root canal failure:

  •          Tooth or root fracture
  •          Infections including bacteria (primarily enterococcus fecalis, etc), viruses, and fungus (candida, etc).
  •          The body’s reaction to root canal materials, microorganisms, and cements which inadvertently are pushed past the tooth into the bone.
  •           Cysts

The question regarding the safety of failed root canals may never be adequately answered. Also, the basic question about whether a root canal failure can be determined due to pain is still debated. Pain, as we have discussed, shows little correlation to histological findings.

What are the Stages of Dental Disease in Children? – Holistic Dentistry

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).

Stages of Dental Disease in Children.jpg

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.

Dr. Philip Memoli and his staff are ready to repair the damage caused by childhood dental problems and ensure that our pediatric patients are committed to maintaining healthy teeth as they grow.

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.

  • Contract-lateral tooth patterns
  • Decay clustering

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.
