IS page THE HUB FOR PEDIATRIC
CHILDRENNERY IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY.
IT’S WHERE PATIENTS WITH EX TENTATIVE TOOTH DECAY VISIT THE
DENTIST. THIS 3-YEAR-OLD CHILD HAS 20
PRIMARY TEETH. EACH ONE HAS A CAVITY.
THAT’S NOT ALL.>>HE HAS HAD TEETH ECSTRACTED.
WE HAVE DONE CROWNS IN THE BACK AND ON THE FRONT BOTTOM TEETH.
WE HAVE DONE SPACE MAINTAINERS. UNDER EACH OF THE BABY TEETH ARE
PRIMARY TEETH.>>HOW OLD IS HE?
>>3.>>THIS WORK HAS TO BE DONE IN A
OPERATING ROOM. LAST YEAR NEARLY 2000 CHILDREN
WERE TREATED FOR TOOTH DECAY IN ONE OF RA DJ’S OPERATING ROOMS.
80% WERE 6 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER. DENTISTS SAY OUR CULTURE IS NOT
CONDUCIVE TO GOOD DENTAL HEALTH.>>OUR LIFE STYLES ARE CHANGING.
WE’RE ON THE RUN. TWO-WORKING PARENT FAMILIES.
LESS TIME TO SPEND WITH KIDS. WE’RE EATING A DIET HIGHER IN
SUGARS AND SNACKING MORE FREQUENTLY.
>>IF KIDS LOSE THEIR BABY TEETH ANYWAYS WHY DOES IT MATTER IF
THEY HAVE CAVITIES? THEY SAY YOUNG CHILDREN DEPEND
ON THE TEETHED TO CHEW AND EAT.>>IF THEY FALL OUT EARLY KIDS
CAN HAVE SPEECH AND SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES.
>>IF YOU LOSE BABY TEETH EARLY THE ADULT TEETH DON’T COME IN
STRAIGHT. THINGS THAT COULD OF BEEN A
VOWED BY TAKING CARE OF YOUR BABY TEETH.
>>TOOTH DECAY IS PREVENTABLE BUT IT HAS TO START EARLY.
SHE RECOMMENDS KIDS VISIT A page DENTIST BY THE TIME THEY’RE ONE.
>>IT OFTEN RAISES EYEBROWS. IT’S A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO
INITIATING PREVENTION EARLY.>>FINDING DENTAL CARE THAT’S
AFFORDABLE CAN BE CHALLENGING AND A DENTIST THAT TREATS
PRESCHOOLERS.>>NEARLY ALL PARENTS BRING KIDS
TO A PEDIATRICIAN. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE CRUCIAL TO
SPREAD THE WORD ON DENTAL HEALTH.
>>IT’S IMPORTANT TO WIPE DOWN TEETH WITH A WASH CLOTH AND
PLANE WATER AND USE A TOOTHBRUSH AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE I BELIEVE.
>>DR. HARTSFIELD BRING UP THE IDEA TO PARENTS AT 6 MONTHS OLD.
>>MOST PARENTS APPRECIATE THE INFORMATION.
WE DON’T THINK ABOUT DENTAL CARE UNTIL THERE IS A PROBLEM OR
CONCERN. THIS IS PREVENTATIVE CARE AND
IT’S WELL RECEIVED BY OUR PATIENT POPULATION.
>>GIVING PEOPLE THE RIGHT INFORMATION DOESN’T NECESSARILY
MEAN THEY WILL DO THE RIGHT THING.
AMBER’S 3-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER, CHARLOTTE, HAS FOUR TEETH THAT
NEED TO BE DRILLED THAT. MEANS IT’S TIME FOR THE
OPERATING ROOM.>>REALLY I FEEL BAD.
I SHOULD OF CARED A LITTLE MORE. MORE THAN JUST BRUSH YOUR TEETH
TWICE A DAY.>>SEDLOW HAS LEARNED HER
LESSON.>>NO MORE APPLE JUICE.
IT IS WHAT IT IS. NO MORE CAVITIES I I DON’T WANT
TO GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN. I DON’T.
SHE’S OKAY, NOT MOM. }
