I have 3 children, We have started all over again. I have a 29 year old, and a 27 year old and a 21 month old. Our babies teeth seem to be rotting out of her head at an excellerated rate. I have never had children who had bad teeth. We started with brushing, gently of course, before she even had teeth and brush regularly twice a day. She didn't even get her first tooth till she was 13 months. She doesn't drink juice, no gatorade, no candy, never have I laid her down with a bottle, We have done everything we are suppose to. I have taken her to the dentist, she coated her teeth and with in two days she has another brown spot on another tooth. I seriously think it was all the medication and nebulizer treatments she received when she was 15 months. She had pneumonia then croup. Seizures from high fevers...etc. Can anyone tell me what to do or what they think it might be. It just makes me cry. Can they fill little ones teeth? The dentist talked about the hospital but at that time my daughter was screaming so much that I could barely hear what she was saying.

Hello Shannon
I have 2 daughters and both went through and still going through the teeth thing.We to were at wits end with teeth rotting and falling out.My oldest had one after another infected right after we had them coated.Yes they can fill little teeth they will either use laughing gas or put them under if it looks to be a problem.My youngest had caps and we were told it solve all our problems but a year later they to started falling out.Now it has stopped (age 11&7)but we have beautiful adult teeth and space holders.My dentist,new guy, told me it looks like they had " milk teeth " which I guess is an old term.I have heard about some meds affecting teeth but as long as the adult teeth look good I would put all fears away.Happy New Year

The dentist can paint them with a coating to protect them until the adult teeth come in!! Definitly talk to a dentist!!

My 4 year old won't let the dentist do more than look in his mouth. He had a mouthfu of cavities, we arranged a day procedure at the hospital. The put him out and was able to get x-rays. He has several crowns and had to have a couple of root canals. all done while he was asleep

Most likely it was the medication that caused this and they can fill little ones teeth. Talk to the dentist and see what can be done.

I would call the dentist first and ask him/her to repeat what they said. I know little teeth can be filled because my 5 yr old has had to have a filling and a crown already. She got the crown when she was 3!

You mentioned the many treatments etc that your child has had. I am wondering if she is allergic to the antibiotics? My sister was allergic as an adult and ended up having to have all of her teeth pulled since they got so bad. Better to find out now before her permanent teeth come in!
