3 year old is losing his teeth
My cousin's son is 3 years old and is losing his teeth. He was taken into hospital recently and had both his front two teeth pulled out (mum found out after the operation and was given no explanation as to why it was done and never saw the doctor). Getting information out of a dentist was just as difficult. My cousin lives in an isolated part of NZ (Karamea) so does not have regular access to a dental clinic. However she does not give her children juice or soft drink etc. She is very health conscious and the children eat very healthy food. The children all brush regularly as well. Basically she is doing everything right but it is looking like more teeth are going to have to come out. Has anyone else had this problem with their children and does anyone have any idea what the problem is and how to prevent this from continuing? Any information much appreciated. Thank you.
