FIRST DENTAL CHECKUP IN CHILDREN
By Dr. Kopel
Children should have their first dental checkup within 6 months of their first tooth eruption or by their first birthday. At this age only a visual exam will be done but early dental problems may be detected and parental questions can be answered. Early checkups also provide the child with a safe first experience.
There are no hard rules on when x-rays should first be taken. If decay is detected in a visual exam then x-rays should be taken to see areas of the teeth that are not clinically visible. Otherwise, by the age of 5-6 when permanent teeth start erupting they should be taken.

AMALGAM FILLINGS VS. COMPOSITE FILLINGS
By Dr. Kopel
Silver mercury fillings also known as dental amalgams have been in use since the 19th century. They are composed of a mixture of silver, tin, copper and mercury. They are quickly becoming obsolete and not usually recommended to restore cavities any more. Instead, composite fillings are now used. Composite fillings, first introduced in the 1960's have undergone many generational improvements and are now both strong and cosmetic alternatives to silver mercury fillings.They have the advantages of not containing mercury, are cosmetic and require less tooth reduction when removing cavities.
