One of the 5 reasons why I don't use Dental Amalgam...'Creep'. This would be why at Paul Brooks Noland DMD we do not use amalgam because teeth are prone to fracture, get recurrent decay and I don't know about you, but that does not look good...there are more than 5 reasons not to use dental amalgam...
The Journal of the American Dental Association wrote a recent article on "Oral and general health benefits of breastfeeding".
"...breastfeeding include a lower risk of acute otitis media, gastroenteritis and diarrhea, severe lower respiratory infections, asthma, sudden infant death syndrome, obesity and other childhood diseases and conditions."
"Evidence also suggests that breastfed children may develop a more favorable occlusion in the primary dentition. "
"The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Chicago, suggests that parents gently clean infants' gums and teeth after breastfeeding. "
"The American Academy of Pediatrics, Elk Grove Village, Ill., recommends that breastfeeding should be exclusive for about the first six months of life and should continue, with the introduction of appropriate complementary foods, to at least age 12 months or beyond, as desired by mother and child. "

As dentists know, it could be any number of things. To provide patients with accurate information about their symptoms and help them make better-informed decisions about their oral health, the ADA has introduced the ADA Dental Symptom Checker on MouthHealthy.org.
