The Facts On Children’s Tooth Decay And Root Canals

Baby teeth aren’t meant to last, but that doesn’t make them disposable. Tooth decay among very young children is a growing problem in America, and unfortunately not many parents understand exactly what’s at stake.

Because baby teeth are meant to fall out, many parents assume that cavities and other signs of decay in their young children’s teeth are nothing to be concerned about. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Baby teeth not only should be cared for the same way we care for permanent teeth, but it may be necessary to turn to a form of root canal to save decaying or damaged baby teeth.

Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic conditions affecting children in the United States, with nearly 20 percent of children ages 5 to 11 suffering from at least one untreated decaying tooth in their lifetime. In addition to the pain and discomfort cavities and other forms of tooth decay inflict on children, there can be other, much more serious results if decaying baby teeth are left untreated. Tooth decay may lead to sinus infections, poor sleep, poor speech articulation and low self-esteem.

Losing baby teeth to decay also can have serious repercussions to the development of a child’s permanent teeth. When a baby tooth is lost prematurely due to disease or damage, the baby teeth around it can crowd into the empty space. This makes it more difficult for the permanent teeth below to come in straight, the way they normally would. In turn, this affects the development of the permanent teeth around them, creating a chain reaction that can lead to serious orthodontic work later in the child’s life.

Given how serious tooth decay can be for a young child’s development, fighting it should be a high priority for parents. Obviously, regular brushing and flossing are extremely important. In cases where a child’s baby tooth has a cavity or another form of tooth decay, however, your pediatric dentist may suggest a form of root canal —called a pulpotomy — to save the tooth until it is ready to fall out on its own.

It’s important for parents to understand the process and purpose behind the pulpotomy procedure. Although it may seem like an excessive measure to save a baby tooth, it actually is far less invasive than a root canal for an adult and will go a long way to providing relief for a child’s pain and discomfort. With some basic understanding of the procedure, parents can help prepare their children for a pulpotomy to minimize their anxiety and make the entire process less stressful for everyone involved.

The following guide will take you step by step through the pulpotomy procedure and explain how you, as a parent, can help your child prepare for it. In the vast majority of cases, a pulpotomy is completely successful in saving a child’s baby tooth, sparing the child from dental complications that could have long-lasting effects. Don’t assume that because a baby tooth isn’t permanent that it isn’t worth saving.

Henry's Mom Reviews: BeautyMNL.com

As a working mom who goes on duty every 3 days (with a 24-hour shift), it's hard to find time to go to the mall and shop. That's why when the BeautyMNL contacted me to test drive their site, I was really excited. I have to be honest that I have been frequenting this site for quite awhile now and it’s very easy to use. Just sign up, and then you’re good to go.

They have a great selection. BeautyMNL carries most of our trusted well-known brands as well as those new and promising ones. 

Once you've picked out the items that you want, you can choose to pay via credit card, Paypal, bank deposit or COD.

I placed my order on Novemeber 1st, a holiday. They promised to deliver my goods within 3-5 working days. Impressively, my order immediately arrived the next day. My order came in a sealed zip lock container. 

Here are the items that I got from them. 

BeautyMNL is not just an online shop, it's a beauty website. My favorite part of their site is the Bloom section. Here you can read about their tops reviews, make up tutorials and skin care. 

I would recommend this site to those who love online shopping due to their wide range of selection and very simple process.

Press Release: Ballet Manila Stages Severino Reyes’ “Tatlong Kuwento ni Lola Basyang”

Did you know that Lola Basyang is male?

Lola Basyang was the pen name of writer Severino Reyes, the genius behind the enchanting stories that has been adapted to books, comics, television and films.

Here are other amazing Lola Basyang facts:

The writer was 75 years old when he wrote the first Lola Basyang story entitled "Ang Plautin ni Periking", about a kindhearted boy with a magical flute and flying carpet.

He was known as "Don Pinoy" but for his magical tales he adopted the character of Lola Basyang, an old woman well-loved by her grandchildren because she regaled them with magical stories about kings, queens, dragons and other incredible creatures.

Lola Basyang's character was closely similar to Mother Goose the imaginary author of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The name was inspired by a woman named Gervacia Guzman De Zamora who was known as "Tandang Basyang".

The stories were published in a special section in Liwayway the oldest Tagalog magazine in the country. The publication began in 1922 and included serialized novels, short stories, poetry, comics, essays, news features, entertainment news and articles, and many others.

Writer Severino Reyes is considered one of the giants of Philippine Literature. Aside from Lola Basyang his most famous play was 'Walang Sugat" a Tagalog zarzeula about the brave Katipuneros during the Spanish occupation.

On August 21, Ballet Manila opens its 20th performance season Tatlong Kuwento ni Lola Basyang,” three captivating dance productions of love, fantasy and adventure.

Ballet Manila will bring back the storybook magic of “Ang Prinsipe ng Mga Ibon,” “Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Marya” and "Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin”, first staged in 2008.

Choreographed by Osias Barroso set to the melodies of national artists for music as arranged by Mon Faustino, “Ang Prinsipe ng Mga Ibon” is about a princess who falls madly in love with a bird prince. Their love is put to a test when her furious father expresses disapproval over their unusual relationship.

Ballet Manila Chief Executive Officer and Artistic Director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde choregraphed “Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Marya”. Set to the music of Joey Ayala, it tells the story a boy in search of his sisters who were captured by a beast, as a punishment for their father's greedy streak. The boy strives to fulfill their father's dying wish by coming face to face with the monster that took his sisters.

“Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin.” was choreographed by the late Tony Fabella with music by Ryan Cayabyab. The tale is about a poor worker who was given a violin when he helped an old lady. The enchanting rhythm of the strings sends listeners in a trance bringing about an unusual change in behavior.

The dance production goes onstage at Aliw Theater on August 21, 22, 28, and 29, at 8:00 p.m., and on August 23 and 30 at 3:00 p.m.

The show is co-presented by Manila Broadcasting Company, Anvil Publishing, Aliw Theater and Star City. Other sponsors are ACS Manufacturing, First United Travel, Papa John’s Pizza, Manang’s Chicken, Empire Salon, Slimmer’s World, Island Rose, and whatshappening.com.ph.
