Basic dental care for your child

Posted on February 25, 2014 at 4:05 PM
Tooth decay can be prevented with good oral care. It is much simpler and more affordable to prevent tooth decay than to repair a decayed tooth.  Daily cleanings, healthy eating habits, and the right amount of decay-fighting fluoride can help your child's teeth.
Prevent Cavities
Cavities are caused by tooth decay, a disease that damages and breaks down teeth.  Untreated tooth decay can lead to pain, loss of teeth and loss of confidence.  Children with tooth pain cannot eat or sleep properly and may miss days of school.  Even worse, an abscess (pus-filled sac) from a cavity can cause serious or even life-threatening infections when left untreated.
Cleaning your Child's Teeth
Teeth should be brushed twice a day and flossed once a day to remove plaque. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that builds up on teeth. Using fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinses can make tooth enamel more resistant to the acid that causes tooth decay and also helps repair areas where the acid attacks have already begun.
Healthy balanced diet
For good dental and overall health, be sure your child eats a balanced diet with foods from the major food groups.  Avoid cookies, candy and other sticky sweet foods as snacks.  Encourage healthy choices like carrots, crackers and water instead.
Dental visits
Professional dental services, such as regular cleanings, fluoride treatments and the application of sealants that prevent tooth decay, can save money and reduce the need for further dental treatment. Talk to your dentist about your child's dental needs and at what age they should start scheduling visits.

daptomycin, sold under the brand name cubicin among others, is a lipopeptide antibiotic used in the treatment of systemic and life-threatening infections caused by gram-positive organisms. it is a naturally occurring compound found in the soil saprotroph streptomyces roseosporus. its distinct mechanism of action makes it useful in treating infections caused by multiple drug-resistant bacteria.

daptomycin was removed from the world health organization's list of essential medicines in 2019. the world health organization classifies daptomycin as critically important for human medicine.

medical uses
daptomycin is indicated for use in adults in the united states for skin and skin structure infections caused by gram-positive infections, s. aureus bacteraemia, and right-sided s. aureus endocarditis. it binds avidly to pulmonary surfactant, so cannot be used in the treatment of pneumonia. there seems to be a difference in working daptomycin on hematogenous pneumonia.

adverse effects
common adverse drug reactions associated with daptomycin therapy include:

cardiovascular: low blood pressure, high blood pressure, swelling
central nervous system: insomnia
dermatological: rash
gastrointestinal: diarrhea, abdominal pain
hematological: eosinophilia
respiratory: dyspnea
other: injection site reactions, fever, hypersensitivity
less common, but serious adverse events reported in the literature include

hepatotoxicity: elevated transaminases
nephrotoxicity: acute kidney injury from rhabdomyolysis
also, myopathy and rhabdomyolysis have been reported in patients simultaneously taking statins, but whether this is due entirely to the statin or whether daptomycin potentiates this effect is unknown. due to the limited data available, the manufacturer recommends that statins be temporarily discontinued while the patient is receiving daptomycin therapy. creatine kinase levels are usually checked regularly while individuals undergo daptomycin therapy.

in july 2010, the fda issued a warning that daptomycin could cause life-threatening eosinophilic pneumonia. the fda said it had identified seven confirmed cases of eosinophilic pneumonia between 2004 and 2010 and an additional 36 possible cases. the seven confirmed victims were all older than 60 and symptoms appeared within two weeks of initiation of therapy.
