Dental Emergencies by Dr. Elsa Echeverri Dr. Elsa Echeverri / Dr. Elizabeth Briceño

When your child needs urgent dental treatment, your pediatric dentist stands ready to help. Please keep his (her) emergency number available and convenient. The first step is to calm your child, letting them know you are going to help them with their problem. Your Child Has a Toothache: Over the counter pain medication for children, dosed according to your child’s weight and age, might ease the symptoms temporarily. You may apply cold compresses. Do not put heat or aspirin on the sore area. Call your pediatric dentist promptly. Your Child’s Baby tooth is Knocked Out: Try to find the Tooth to make sure it is not embedded into the gum. The baby tooth should not be placed back into the socket due to potential subsequent damage to the developing permanent tooth. Contact and visit your pediatric dentist as soon as possible. Your Child’s Permanent Tooth is Knocked Out: True emergency and immediate action is necessary. Find the tooth and rinse it gently in water, remembering to hold tooth by the crown, not the root. Inspect the tooth for obvious fractures. If the tooth is sound, immediately try to place back in the socket and hold with a clean gauze or washcloth. If you can’t put it back in socket, place the tooth in a clean container with cold milk, saliva, saline solution (contact lens solution) or water. For older patients, the tooth may be carried in the patient’s mouth between the teeth and cheeks. Get to the pediatric dentist office immediately. The faster you act, the better the chance of saving the tooth. 06 www.imaginekidsmagazine.com

A Tooth is Chipped or Fracture: The options may range from simple reshaping of the tooth to root canal therapy and crowns, or even extraction. Quick action can save the tooth, prevent infection and reduce the need for extensive dental treatment. Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip or Cheek: Rinse the area with water and apply ice to injured areas to help control swelling. If there is bleeding, apply firm gentle pressure with gauze or washcloth. Call your pediatric dentist office if the bleeding is not controlled easily with pressure. A Severe Blow to the Head or a Jaw Fracture: You need immediate medical attention. A severe head injury can be life threatening. Keep in mind that an emergency medical team might be able to reach you faster, than you trying to get to the hospital. Preventing Dental Injuries: Your child’s risk of dental injuries can be reduced greatly by following a few suggestions. First, reduce risks for severe oral injury in sports by wearing protective gear, including a mouth guard. Second, always use a car seat for young children. Third, Do not allow your child to put any foreign objects in the mouth.

Prescribing pills to treat poor academic performance The pills boost focus and impulse control in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Although A.D.H.D is the diagnosis, some call the disorder “made up” and “an excuse” to prescribe the pills to treat what others consider the children’s true ill — poor academic performance in inadequate schools. Some doctors are prescribing stimulants to struggling students in schools starved of extra money — not to treat A.D.H.D., necessarily, but to boost their academic performance. Some experts note that as wealthy students abuse stimulants to raise already-good grades in colleges and high schools, the medications are being used on low-income elementary school children with faltering grades and parents eager to see them succeed. Children with academic problems are essentially “mismatched with their environment, as their families can rarely afford behavior-based therapies like tutoring and family counseling and ultimately medication becomes the most reliable and pragmatic way to redirect the student toward success. Some experts see little harm in a responsible physician using A.D.H.D. medications to help a struggling student. Others fear that doctors are exposing children to unwarranted physical and psychological risks. Reported side effects of the drugs have included growth suppression, increased blood pressure and, in rare cases, psychotic episodes. A.D.H.D. which is characterized by severe inattention and impulsivity, is an increasingly common psychiatric diagnosis among American youth: about 9.5 percent of Americans ages 4 to 17 were judged to have it in 2007, or about 5.4 million children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The reported prevalence of the disorder has risen steadily for more than a decade, with 10 www.imaginekidsmagazine.com

s o m e doctors gratified by its widening recognition but others fearful that the diagnosis, and the drugs to treat it, are handed out too loosely and at the exclusion of no pharmaceutical therapies. The Drug Enforcement Administration classifies these medications as Schedule II Controlled Substances because they are particularly addictive. Long-term effects of extended use are not well understood, said many medical experts. Some of them worry that children can become dependent on the medication well into adulthood; long after any A.D.H.D. symptoms can dissipate. According to guidelines published last year by the American Academy of Pediatrics, physicians should use one of several behavior rating scales, some of which feature dozens of categories, to make sure that a child not only fits criteria for A.D.H.D., but also has no related condition like dyslexia or oppositional defiant disorder, in which intense anger is directed toward authority figures. However, a 2010 study in the Journal of Attention Disorders suggested that at least 20 percent of doctors said they did not follow this protocol when making their A.D.H.D. diagnoses, with many of them following personal instinct. There is concern, however, that the rising use of stimulants in this manner can threaten what is called “the authenticity of development”. Children are still in the developmental phase, and we still don’t know how these drugs biologically affect the developing brain. For educators, A.D.H.D. is a very controversial subject and for many children it is a serious learning disability. Diagnosis rates of A.D.H.D. have risen as sharply as school funding has declined.

Summer Camps a Positive Experience Believe it or not it’s that time again to plan summer vacation for the kids. Attending summer camp has been proven to be a positive experience for children. It helps with psychosocial development, builds self-esteem, teaches independence and promotes leadership. Therefore it is very much recommended. However, before choosing a camp, a parents should assess their child’s interests, overall physical and mental wellbeing as well as maturity level if an overnight camp is being considered. Here are some questions parents should ask when choosing a camp, especially overnight camps. 1) Is the camp accredited by the American Camp Association?, which means they have to follow certain standards for safety health regulations and type of programs offered. 2) Are camp counselors CPR certified? And also what is the screening process when hired (criminal record, previous employment) 12 www.imaginekidsmagazine.com

3) What is the counselor to child ratio? 4) What is the camp’s practice for hydration? 5) What is the camp’s protocol in case of an emergency? Now, Once a camp is chosen is time to get your child ready. Make sure that all immunizations are up to date and make an appointment early if a camp physical is needed. Also make sure the camp has multiple contact options to be reached in order of an emergency, and at the same time find out what is the best way for you to contact your child. Hope everyone has a experience this summer.

Changing the way we talk to our kids The way that we talk to our kids has a huge impact on their learning and the ability to listen to us. The use of positive language has proven to give your children more confidence, makes them feel happier, helps them behave better, encourages them to try harder achieving success.

I like the way you do that - I’m pleased with (proud of) you - That’s good - Very nice Good work- Good for you - That’s the way - Much better – That’s right- You’re doing better - That’s perfect Good idea - What a cleaver idea- I like to way you -It made me feel really happy

It is very important that you try not to say “no” or “don’t” all of the time. There is no doubt that if we say, “Don’t forget to… ” or “No running inside” or “Don’t stand up when eating on the table” your child will not listen to you . Instead, try to reword what you want them to do. For example, “Please, remember to …” or “You need to walk, please” This requires much practice but is well worth the effort because children thrive on positive attention. Children need to feel loved and appreciated. Most parents find that it is easier to provide negative feedback rather than positive feedback. Using some of the phrases below on a daily basis with your child, you will find that he or she will start paying more attention to you and will try harder to please you

Remember that talking with kids is a two way street. Talk with them and then hear what they have to say. Listening is just as important as talking

Always try to use words of encouragement and praise like: Yes - Good - Fine Very good - Excellent - Marvelous - That’s right Correct - Keep it up - Way to go -Wonderful

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs Recipe for 36

• 1 16 oz. Box Confectioners Sugar • 2 Cups Peanut Butter • 1 teaspoon Vanilla • 1/2 Cup Melted Butter (1/4 cup if you use regular, not natural, peanut butter) • 16 (1 oz.) Squares Semi-Sweet Chocolate • 2 Tablespoons Shortening

Instructions:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine confectioners sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla. If you need more moisture, add a little milk. Mix until blended. Shape into 36 eggs keeping them flat on the bottom. Freeze eggs for at least 1 hour. 2. When the eggs have frozen, place shortening and chocolate in top of double boiler. Melt over medium heat, stirring until smooth. 3. Stick a fork in the bottom of a peanut butter egg. Dip it in melted chocolate to cover. Drain on waxed paper. Decorate the eggs while wet if you are attaching stick-on type decorations. Otherwise, wait until they are dry to add icing. You can also try using crunchy peanut butter. If you’re feeling really adventurous, throw in some Rice Krispies for even more crunch. Keep in mind that kids actually help so they may not look like Martha Stewart’s eggs, but they’re delicious.

Egg Decorating Ideas

Blowing: Emptying eggs lets you save your creations. An adult should pierce egg at both ends with a utility knife, widening one hole a bit. Poke a straightened paper clip through wide hole; stir yolk. Place ear syringe in smaller hole; squeeze. Contents will pour out. (Wash hands well.) Dyeing: It’s easy to make dye: Cover the work area with paper towels. In a jar, mix 1 teaspoon vinegar, 20 drops food coloring, and 1 cup warm water. Submerge the egg (keep it down with a paper cup containing water). Soak 5 minutes for light colors and 10 minutes for darker shades. Remove the

20 www.imaginekidsmagazine.com

egg with tongs. A homemade rack of pins and foam board makes for even drying and quick cleanup. Decorating: Dye or paint should be fully dry before beginning. Affix features with white glue (on crepe paper, use tiny dots of glue); let dry at least 20 minutes. Glue on feet or legs first so egg will stand. For ears and combs, dab glue on edge of felt or crepe paper, affix piece, let dry, then fold up. Add small details like eyes with tempera paint or a marker. Who knows just what will hatch from a child’s imagination?

Mi Salud

Nunca es tarde...

para usar frenillos... Si tienes encías y dientes sanos, así como también fuertes estructuras óseas, nunca serás muy viejo para comenzar un tratamiento de ortodoncia En años anteriores asociábamos y relacionábamos los brackets o frenillos como un sinónimo o una etapa de la adolescencia, otros recuerdan su tratamiento como una de las peores etapas estéticas de su vida, pero la gran mayoría de las personas que hemos tenido braces coincidimos en que gracias a ellos hoy podemos lucir y mostrar a la sociedad una sonrisa perfecta. Hoy en día los avances tecnológicos han hecho que los frenillos o brackets sean más pequeños, menos visibles y mucho más importante que sean menos incómodos que antes. En realidad, muchos de los casos pueden ser tratados con brackets transparentes o alineadores transparentes (Invisalign) lo que ha traído como consecuencia que muchos adultos ahora están dispuestos a recibir tratamiento. Es tanto así, que aquí en los Estados Unidos 1 de cada 5 pacientes es mayor de 18 años de edad, un 20 % al 25 % o más de los pacientes que hoy en día comienza un tratamiento con braces son adultos ,y de ellos , más de la mitad son del sexo femenino. 28 www.imaginekidsmagazine.com

Algunos adultos expresan gran preocupación que al comenzar un tratamiento de ortodoncia a su edad podría ser mucho más dificultoso, doloroso y que podría tomar más tiempo que un tratamiento para un adolescente, lo cual no es totalmente cierto ya que mover dientes a cualquier edad envuelve el mismo proceso. El tiempo que toma un tratamiento para ser terminado exitosamente dependerá más en la severidad del caso, la cooperación del paciente y la posición de los maxilares. El tratamiento de los adultos pudiera tomar un poco más de tiempo porque los huesos faciales ya no crecen más, sin embargo, los adultos tienen la tendencia a cooperar muchos más con el tratamiento y seguir las instrucciones del ortodoncista haciendo que el tratamiento sea mas corto comparado con el los adolescentes. Cabe recalcar que es muy importante continuar con su visita al odontólogo general por lo menos cada 6 meses. Y recuerde que nunca es tarde para el uso de los frenillos... No hay límites de edad!!!

Campamentos de verano una experiencia positiva Lo creas o no, llego otra vez el momento de planificar las vacaciones de verano para los niños. Asistir a campamentos de verano ha probado ser una experiencia muy positiva para los niños. Les ayuda con el desarrollo psicosocial, fortalece la autoestima, enseña la independencia y promueve el liderazgo. Por lo tanto, es muy recomendable. Sin embargo, antes de elegir un campamento los padres deben evaluar los intereses de sus hijos, el bienestar general físico y mental, así como el nivel de madurez sobretodo si se esta considerando un campamento nocturno o de larga estadia. Aquí hay algunas preguntas que los padres deben hacer al elegir un campamento: 1) ¿Es el campamento acreditado por la Sociedad Americana de Campamentos (American Camp Association)?,Eso es importante ya que deben seguir ciertas normas de seguridad, normas de salud y el tipo de programas que se ofrecen. 2) ¿Estan los consejeros del campamento certificados en Reanimacion Cardiopulmonar 30 www.imaginekidsmagazine.com

(CPR Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) ? Y también lo que es el proceso de selección cuando fue contratado (antecedentes penales, el empleo anterior, etc) 3) ¿Cuál es la proporcion consejero por niño? 4) ¿Cuál es la práctica del campamento con respecto a la hidratación? 5) ¿Cuál es el protocolo del campamento en caso de una emergencia? Ahora, una vez que se elija un campamento es el momento de preparar a su hijo. Asegúrese de que todas las vacunas estén al día y hacer una cita con tiempo si requiere examen físico. También asegúrese de que el campamento posea múltiples opciones de contacto al momento de ocurrir una emergencia, y al mismo tiempo descubrir cuál es la mejor manera de ponerse en contacto con su hijo. Espero que todos tengan una experiencia muy positiva en sus respectivos campamentos este verano. Kathrym Espana, MD Texas Children Pediatría Fannin


Ideas para Decorar en Pascua Soplado o Vaciado : Vaciado de huevos te permite guardar tus creaciones. Un adulto debe perforar el huevo en ambos extremos con un cuchillo, tratando de dejar un orificio mas grande, meta un clip enderezado a través del orificio ; revuelva la yema. Coloque la jeringa en el agujero más pequeño; apriete el contenido y este se derramará por el otro orificio. (Lavar bien las manos.) Tintura o Pintura: Es fácil hacer la tintura: Cubra el área de trabajo con toallas de papel. En un recipiente, mezcle 1 cucharadita de vinagre, 20 gotas de colorante alimentario, y 1 taza agua tibia. Sumerja el huevo (manténgalo abajo con un vaso de papel que contenga agua). Remoje por 5 minutos para colores claros y 10 minutos para los tonos más oscuros. Quite el huevo con unas tenazas. Busque una superficie de goma espuma o anime donde pueda colocar un tablero de alfileres casero . Coloque allí los huevitos para un secado uniforme y limpieza rápida. Decoración: La tintura o pintura debe estar completamente seca antes de comenzar. Para los detalles adhieralos con pegamento blanco (use papel crepe y pequeños puntos de pegamento), deje secar por lo menos 20 minutos. Aplique pegamento en pies o piernas, primero, así el huevo se mantendrá de pie. Para los oídos y la cresta, agregue pegamento en el borde de el fieltro o papel crepé, fije la pieza, deje secar, luego doble hacia arriba. Añadir los pequeños detalles como los ojos con pintura o un marcador. ¡Deje volar la imaginación del niño!
