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.

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.

Best Laser Root Canal Alternative Treatment for Call us (908) 464-9144 | NJ 07922

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.


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?

The cons or risks with an RCT are less obvious. They center on the fact that a tooth is an “open” biological system which interacts with the body. In other words, anything placed into the tooth will eventually find its way into the body and may interact with a susceptible cell or organ.



It’s important to understand that all teeth problems are unique. No treatment is universal. Individual circumstances may dictate that a specific treatment is not an option. Or perhaps one option will offer a superior result over another.

Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Dentist

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.

Childhood Dental Problems and Pediatric Dentistry

A wide variety of symptoms are 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.


Dental Emergency | Affordable Dentist | Dental Decay

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.

Childhood Dental Problems and Pediatric Dentistry

Our pediatric wellness program begins with a three-part, comprehensive exam that checks tooth diagnosis, jaw development diagnosis, and periodontal diagnosis.

  • The tooth diagnosis assesses tooth development, tooth mineralization, and decay development.
  • The jaw development diagnosis examines jaw development and alignment of the teeth.
  • The periodontal diagnosis is an examination for teen gingivitis.

The purpose of pediatric wellness is to prevent Dental Disease in Children.

Such dental afflictions occur in five stages:

  • Stage I examines the underlying causes of a child’s dental problems.
  • Stage II looks for oral susceptibility to dental diseases in teeth, gums, and jaw.
  • Stage III looks for the initial indicators of dental disease.
  • Stage IV is the oral-systemic metastasis stage, when dental problems have progressed to a more serious level.
  • Stage V is when systemic manifestations of dental disease occur, which may be either lymphatic or obstetric in nature.
