Dental health is important for all children, since oral health is vital to overall health. Special needs children may have issues with the mechanics of eating such as chewing or swallowing or with the sensory experiences of eating like textures and temperatures. If your child has problems with having his or her teeth or mouth touched it will be helpful to start desensitizing early. Begin as gently as possible, maybe by just touching the lips with something soft. Gradually increase the pressure as it is tolerated. Once the mouth is actually open you can start working on touching the teeth, little by little. Infant toothbrushes that slip on your finger can help. If your child has a therapist you can work on this goal together. Brushing your …show more content…
After he was smashed in the face last year with a marble statue, the dental hygienist that he saw became a pivotal figure in recruiting young women for Berlusconi's sex parties. Nicole Minetti also joined Berlusconi's political party and now is a member of the Lombardy regional parliament. However, her primary role with Berlusconi was far less political and more social. "Minetti was there with her chest out kissing Berlusconi continuously. It was a real whorehouse. All the girls were given rings and necklaces," reported a police officer on the new revelations of the sex parties. In the 400-page court document, which is primarily concerned with Berlusconi's alleged payments for sex with a minor, the young women at his parties engaged in provocative and lurid behavior. The women stroked themselves and Berlusconi while carrying on stripteases and seductive, lesbian-style dances. Karima El Mahroug, the 17-year-old Moroccan that Berlusconi is accused of having sex with is supposed to have been taped telling a friend, "I told Silvio I wanted five million Euro for all this...he told me he would pay me all I wanted, in gold, but that I should just keep making things up and pretend I'm mad but not reveal anything and stay quiet." Berlusconi's term as Prime Minister over the last three years has been hampered by wild tales of sex and outrageous behavior. Increasingly, it seems that the allegations get wilder and wilder, while at the same time becoming more believable. Elections are in 2013, but the odds of Berlusconi making it that long are about as likely as Berlusconi taking a vow of abstinence. This man has a sex addiction problem and does not seem to comprehend how it is taking him down. Last year, his wife, Veronica, divorced him. She stated that she could no longer tolerate his association with "minors." Berlusconi should have taken the hint then. For more on foolishness in
Ensuring children know about the importance of keeping their teeth clean and healthy from an early age is equally important. We must ensure they know how and when to clean their teeth and by the time they are older, brushing their teeth twice a day should become part of their routine.
Because children are influenced by the family tradition and learn from their parents, it is important for parents to make sure that they are teaching proper oral care habits at a young age. The habits that children should learn at a young age are; keeping up with home dental care, receiving the dental care that people should, needing dental care but being enforced to go, brushing teeth as well as they should, being taught on how to control snacking between meals as well as they should, and being taught that dental care is indeed important. " Poor oral health has an impact upon children's health in general and dental caries can lead to a lack of appetite, problems with chewing, problems with sleeping and a decrease in school performance" (Abanto et al, 2011). Proper health education is somewhat
The websites I used for my research were Center for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization. The World Health Organization defines Oral Health as “a state of being free from chronic mouth and facial pain, oral and throat cancer, oral sores, birth defects such as cleft lip and palate, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay and tooth loss, and other diseases and disorders that affect the oral cavity” (2015). It is necessary to brush our teeth twice a day for two minutes and floss daily. Since tooth decay has been one of the most common chronic disease among children in the United States, I found it very important to educate them that this is a preventable disease and what ways it can be
Oral disease is on of the most common health problems affecting children in the United States (Oral Health in America, 2000). Dental caries is the most prevalent dental disease in children which occurs more often in disadvantaged children than in others. Additionally, children with public insurance have great difficulty gaining access to primary oral care services (Kaye N, 1998; Oral health, 2000). A Report of the Surgeon General stated that minority and low-income children in the United States experience poorer oral health and poorer access to dental health care services than do their majority and higher-income peers (Oral Health in America, 2000). Each year, less than one in five children enrolled in Medicaid use preventive services (Kaye N, 1998; Oral health, 2000). Even if the public insured children get some access to preventive care, access to comprehensive dental care is much more less (Oral Health in America, 2000).
The area’s leading children’s dentist knows that healthy dental habits developed early in life are the key to a million-watt smile.

If you have children, you probably know how difficult it is to get your child to do anything related to their oral health: brushing, flossing, and dentist visits.

Dental health is continuing to play a substantial role in the overall health for both adults and children. Dental health may affect several domains of child development and growth69. Good child dental health is essential for developing several physical and social functions such as feeding, breathing, speaking, smiling, and social adaptation. In the other hand, dental diseases can impact the children in many ways which may include pain, discomfort, embarrassment, challenged cognitive development, reduced self-esteem, and impairments of daily life activities70. In order to create a healthy future for Australian school children, we need to understand the epidemiology of child oral health and oral health behaviors 71. Establishing good oral health behaviors and attitudes at early age can create an opportunities to minimize the oral disease burden in the future 72, which may reduce the overwhelming cost of treating oral diseases that has been accounting for around 6.5% ($5.3 billion) of total health care expenditure 73. In addition, a good oral health has not being a privilege for all Australian school children; obvious differences exist across each state and territory 72. Such differences can be related to socio-economic disadvantage, residence in geographical locations that have restricted access to health and other services, and Indigenous or non-English

The pediatric dental office not only specializes in dental care for infants, children and adolescent patients, but also for those with special needs (down syndrome, autism, etc.). The pediatric dentist will focus mainly on early detection and prevention, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of the patients. Although the techniques and procedures for a pediatric dentistry are parallel to those in an adult dentistry, it is the precautions that must be taken to assure quality care of the pediatric patients! Similar to general dentistry, the pediatric dentistry has a dental team made up of dental assistants to aid in procedures.
This paper is a summary of two articles, Practical Oral Care for People with Autism and Practical Oral Care for People with Down syndrome. They talked about separately in this paper. First talked about was Autistic and how oral care is important for them to maintain. Though when being the health care provider you need to be educated on how to interact with this patient because you use different techniques than a regular patient. The Down syndrome patient is other techniques that a health care provider should be aware of. And for both of these patients you will learn strategies when it comes to examining or assessing these types of patient’s oral care. Oral care is important for every patient frankly because it is a place bacteria like to live. It will be our duty to teach our patients and these two articles that was used in the paper should help prepare you for the moment.
There are three main types of gum disease that children can develop. First, there is gingivitis, which is the most easily preventable just by having your child maintain good dental hygiene. Children who brush at least twice a day for two full minutes each time and also floss daily are less likely to develop gingivitis than children who don't brush or floss regularly. If your child is very young and has not reached puberty, then this is likely the type
Prevention of oral disease is critical in Early Head Start (EHS) programs. “Early childhood caries has emerged as a concern over the past few years because of its widespread and increasing prevalence, its inequitable distribution among preschool-aged children and its negative consequences for children, their families, and public health programs” (Mofidi, Zeldin, & Rozier, 2009, p. 245). Assessable to young children in most parts of the United Stated, dental care provides treatment, particularly to children in low-income families. Rates of failure to treat oral health has increase tremendously. Approaches explored by EHS programs to treat as well as prevent will decrease high-risk for early childhood caries.
Dental Hygiene is very important to me and has been since I was a child, this has influenced my desire of becoming a pediatric dentist. In a personal interview i conducted with Dr.Bills she informed me of this, “Dental Hygiene is emphasized by all dentists, we want our patients to have elegant white teeth and pleasant breath”(Bills). I would like to teach children the importance of keeping their teeth brushed so that they will have a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. Pediatric Dentistry is a superb fit for me because I care about dental health and I want children to know the importance as well. It is never too early for children to learn how important dental hygiene is.
As reported by the Academy of Pediatrics, oral hygiene should start at birth and continue throughout life ("Never too early to start," 2014). In the early years, from birth to the age of three, the parents have the responsibility of cleaning and caring for the child’s mouth and teeth. As a child develops, so too does their need for independence. By age three, with proper instruction, children begin to assist in the management of their oral hygiene needs ("CPS," 2013).
Imagine after years of being dead, a human body is found and all that is really left of them is their teeth. Why? It may be because of the way they took care of their teeth while they were alive and the precaution methods they were educated about. Educating people about oral health is really important because teeth are the strongest bone in our body and they even preserve the most after we pass away, this means it is an essential factor to knowing how to protect them from getting a disease and keeping them as long as possible. Most patients are not aware of diseases in dentistry. Educating the older and the young generation will help to care for their oral health.
