Re: 3 Year Old Hawaiian Girl Dies After Dental Procedures

Good grief! FOUR root canals? She's only three, for god's sake! Must have had either a straight sugar diet or some sort of vitamin deficiency/ disease. That's way too much work to be done in one sitting- my dentist would have you come back at least once, to divide the work up. They would have had to keep her under way too long. I'm no expert, but something reeks to high heaven here. Poor child- her family must be devastated.

She didnt need that much dental work. The last article says that the x-rays done were so poor that they were unusable as an actual diagnostic tool. She only had a couple of cavities when her body was examined by a competent dentist.

Re: 3 Year Old Hawaiian Girl Dies After Dental Procedures

Thanks for copying it for me kanda!
My kindle and copying dont get along. I've gotten used to the portability of it and now I'm too lazy to get out my laptop lol.i need to though, i cant see any videos on here with the kindle.
Back on topic...even if she did need that much work and it wasn't a mistake, i doubt it would have been the parents fault. That much work would have probably been genetic. Both sides of my family have bad teeth. I took care of mine but it didnt matter. One set of my grandparents had dentures by the time they were 40. Both very clean with health insurance and a bit of money. Genetics can kick you in the ass sometimes. I'm pissed at the dentist, why didnt they redo the xrays if they were blurry. Oh so they are just going to guess she needed that much work? They even might have gotten away with doing that much work on her if they were paying fucking attention to what they were doing! I looked up the dentistry last night and i think it was on yelp, people were reviewing them and called them baby killers and telling others not to bring their kids there.

Quack medicine kills. Most doctors don't know what the fuck they are doing. The minority that do are often marginalized.

Re: 3 Year Old Hawaiian Girl Dies After Dental Procedures

I don't understand... Why the fuck did they even bother? If she had some cavities, unless they were causing her any pain, why didn't they just leave it alone?

I'm not a parent, but I think the toothpaste that is used on 3 year olds doesn't have any fluoride or anything in it, so you're basically just teaching them the motions, but the toothpaste is safe to swallow still because they're too young still to avoid swallowing it.

My neighbor's daughter is about the same age as this little girl and she fell and cracked the inside of her two front teeth. It bled inside of the teeth and killed the nerves in the baby teeth, turning them gray. The dentist decided to remove them since in a couple years they'll fall out and she'll get her adult teeth. She looks so adorable whenever she grins because she's missing her two top front teeth.

It's not just you, shinycatcreations. I couldn't copy anything from that site either. I'm on a laptop and computer illiterate.

Kanda must be magical!

As far as fluoride, just happened upon this article, although a decade old.


Dangers of Fluoride in Toothpaste and Water

Health Sciences Institute e-Alert

Dear Reader,

It was right there in front of me and I still couldn't believe it. Watching TV last weekend I saw an advertisement for a new product from Dannon: bottled water for kids called, "Fluoride to Go."

The pitch? "Why give your child soda full of sugar? Instead offer them Dannon Fluoride to Go - a convenient, satisfying way to help your child build strong teeth." So now Dannon offers you a choice: you can give the kids sodas with all the added sugar, or you can give them water with all the added toxins.

What?

Well, in case you didn't know it, fluoride is highly toxic. In fact, before fluoride was deemed a, "cavity fighter," it was used as insecticide and rat poison. It's true. Even more surprising is that when it comes to dental hygiene, fluoride actually does more harm than good.

Everything you always DIDN'T want to know about fluoride

For decades the message that fluoride safely prevents tooth decay has been considered sacrosanct. This idea came from the same, "chemicals for better living," era that also told us that smoking cigarettes soothed the throat.

Now for a brief history lesson. Please switch off the lights and turn on the projector...

Fluoride is a pollutant - a by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. The problem of how to legally dispose of fluoride was solved in the 1930's when a study, (funded by one of the country's largest aluminum companies), concluded that fluoride prevented tooth decay.

A successful public relations effort, helped along with some cooperative government cronies, resulted in the good news going out. This miracle chemical, when added to water supplies, will give everyone healthy teeth and brighter smiles.

Got Fluoride?

But, does fluoride actually prevent tooth decay? Not according to the largest study ever conducted on fluoridation and oral health. 39,000 school children in 84 areas around the U.S. were studied in the mid-80's, and the results showed no statistical difference in tooth decay rates between fluoridated and non-fluoridated cities.

Meanwhile, tooth decay trends tracked by the World Health Organization from 1970 to the present, show that the incidence of decayed, missing or filled teeth has been steadily in decline with each passing year in the U.S., France, Germany, Japan, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Portugal, Iceland and Greece.

And why are the numbers of decayed teeth on the decline? Better oral hygiene and improved dental practice is the most obvious answer. It's certainly not the fluoride. Because of all of those countries, only one adds fluoride to the public water supply: the United States.

A few of the countries listed above used to put fluoride in some of their water, but they eventually wised up to the dangers of this aluminum by-product. And here's some truly radical thinking for you. Many of those countries simply refuse to run fluoride through every citizen's faucets based on the idea that health treatments should be a personal choice and not mandated by the government. What a concept!

Downside Takes a Down Turn

So how is fluoride bad for you? To start with, the irony is that when you consume too much fluoride, your teeth can become discolored and crumble. But that's nothing compared to the other ways that fluoride attacks your mind and body.

In tests on laboratory animals, fluoride has been shown to enhance the brain's absorption of aluminum - the substance that's found in the brains of most Alzheimer's patients. Three different osteoporosis studies have associated hip fractures with fluoridation. And excessive fluoride has been shown to damage the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, leading to limited joint mobility, ligament calcification, muscular degeneration and neurological deficits.

And finally, (I saved the worst till last), a number of different studies have linked fluoride to as many as 10,000 cancer deaths per year, with a high incidence of bone cancer among men exposed to fluoridated water.

In the meantime, local, state and federal government agencies across the U.S. do their best to simply dismiss all this bad news. Unlike their European counterparts, they're sticking to their outdated and baseless claims that the stuff is good for you. Why? If I had to guess, I'd say it's because they're terrified that if they admit that fluoride is poison, the deluge of resulting civil law suits just might wash them away.

Consumer Misreports

So, back to Dannon - what do you think? Are kids getting so little fluoride that they need to have it added to their bottled spring water?

Consumer Reports magazine says YES! As you may recall. Consumer Reports has been a target in previous e-Alerts for offering superficial and wrong-headed advice on health and nutrition issues.

My beef with CR is that they are no more qualified to give me nutrition advice than my internist is qualified to tell me which air conditioners have the best ratio of energy efficiency to BTUs. And yet, they continue to get involved in issues they just have no place in.

Dr. Marvin Lipman, a spokesman for Consumer Reports, stated that not everyone is getting enough fluoride. The problem, says Dr. Lipman, is twofold. Some communities don't fluoridate their water systems, and a lot of people these days are drinking bottled water which contains no fluoride.

Ah, but don't you worry - in addition to Dannon, as many as 20 other bottled water pushers, are answering the, "need," for more fluoride. And if you still think you're not getting sufficient fluoridation, an article in Consumer Reports suggests that you sign up to have 5 gallon jugs of fluoride laced water delivered to your door.

But let's be perfectly clear. Fluoride is not something your body needs. No one has a fluoride deficiency. Fluoride is a false magic bullet solution from a bygone era. Now, 60 years after water fluoridation began, the word is getting out: this stuff is just plain bad.

But, thanks to Dannon and others, it appears that fluoride is about to take its toll on at least one more generation of American kids before someone overcomes the government marketing mindset and reveals this poison for what it really is.

That's quite extensive dental work for a four year old! Doctors don't usually do root canals unless they are the second set of teeth.

I'd like to know whose idea it was to do all that work at once on a baby

Poor baby
There are a lot of butchers out there. And they are mostly protected by settling out of court, so it never reaches their Board. After 30 years in the healthcare field, I've seen it all. And there is nothing one person can do until they don't allow settlements for malpractice - as it should be - to protect the public.

Re: 3 Year Old Hawaiian Girl Dies After Dental Procedures

Four root canals at once!? Not even considering the other work, four fucking root canals is way to much stress for such a young child. Wtf kind of medical facility is that?
