One cosmetic dentist in Monmouth County, New Jersey is helping kids protect their teeth and giving back to U.S. soldiers oversees this Halloween. Dr. Peter Ciampi and Spring Lake Dental Care are participating in the Halloween Candy Buy Back program, an event growing in popularity across the country. For $ 1 per pound, Dr. Ciampi will pay trick-or-treaters to take this years candy haul off their hands then ship the treasure trove of sweets over to our men and women fighting in foreign lands. Kids are also encouraged to bring cards, drawings, and letters to the troops theyd like to send along with the candy.
Every year, kids across the globe consume about 2 percent more sugar than the last. With about 50 million tons of sugar being consumed annually, extra attention needs to be paid to make sure children are taking care of their teeth and gums to maintain oral health and prevent current and future dental problems. Moderating, or even staying away from candy altogether, can not only protect your child from broken teeth or damaged braces, it can also lessen the risk of developing weight problems or hyperactivity issues. And with the Halloween Candy Buy Back program, Dr. Peter Ciampi says children can get cash, protect their teeth, and contribute to a worthy cause all at the same time.
On Monday November 2nd from 3-6 pm, and Tuesday, November 3rd from 2-5pm, parents and their children can drop by Dr. Ciampis practice offering family and cosmetic dentistry in New Jersey. Candy will be weighed and Dr. Ciampi will pay $ 1 for every pound of sweets. After the candy is bought, Spring Lake Dental Care will ship the haul over to our soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Anyone can participate in the Halloween Candy Buy Back program, not just patients at Spring Lake Dental Care. Dr. Ciampi says the program covers so many worthy causes protecting young teeth and gums, giving something to our fighting men and women, and providing incentives for kids to stay away from too much sugar he looks forward to making Halloween Buyback an annual event.
And that may be enough to keep the little trick-or-treaters smiling for years to come.

High school football kicked off around the country this month, ushering in another year of youth sports, during which 3 million student teeth are expected to be lost, says veteran San Antonio cosmetic dentist Edward Camacho, DDS.
Athletics are an important part of health and social growth,Dr. Camacho said. But they provide risks to childrens mouths that can have long-term consequences. Its vital that parents understand and guard against these risks, and know first-aid procedures that may save a tooth thats been knocked out.
According to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation, about 3 million teeth will be knocked out as about 30 million youths participate in athletics this year. In fact, the U.S. Surgeon General reports that craniofacial injuries account for a full third of all non-fatal sports injuries overall. And its not just football, with its violent clashes of pads and helmets.
Basketball and baseball are the two biggest mouth-injuring sports, reports Dr. Stephen Mitchell, of the University of Alabamas Department of Pediatric Dentistry. And the most common injuries we see are broken, displaced or knocked-out teeth, and broken jaws.
In part, this is because mouthguards and face-protecting helmets are not required for many sports, as they are in football, hockey and lacrosse. Mitchell recommends custom-fit mouthguards as the most effective insurance against tooth trauma for youth with permanent teeth. For younger children, with baby teeth, he recommends over-the-counter mouthguards that can be heated and molded to the teeth since their dentition is in transition.
About a quarter of dental injuries can still occur with mouthguards in place. Quick first-aid action and dental treatment may save a lost tooth, Dr. Camacho said. And the cost of not acting quickly to save a permanent tooth can be dramatic.
The National Youth Sports Safety Foundation estimates that the cost to treat a lost permanent tooth and provide followup care ranges from $ 5,000 to $ 20,000 over a lifetime.
If a tooth is broken or cracked, parents should get the young athlete to the dentist within 24 hours, Dr.Camacho said. But if the tooth is knocked out, there is no time to wait. Action must be taken within minutes to have the best chance to save the tooth. First aid steps include:
