Hi, my son is 5.5 years old and he just lost his 1st tooth (the lower front tooth), and the new one erupted. when i took him to the dentist to check if the new tooth is well placed, he said that he has already his two permanent molars, and that he had cavities in them. I never noticed when his 1st permanent molars erupted and was shocked to know that they had already cavities, knowing that since his 1st baby tooth erupted, i'm taking very good care of his teeth. I was even more shocked to know that he has enamel hypoplasia. the doctor advised to fill his molar cavities but mentioned that some of his other primary teeth are decayed, but would not work on these as they are going to fall down. i'm frustrated and feel horrible. Any advise?
