after your reply I want to say one thing my daughter has brown stains on her teeth. The dentist said not to worry but the child specialist now has told she might have caries, which is slow tooth decay.

wish I knew. My grandson holds his food in his mouth to savor the flavor. Dentist says he must stop because he has created a dark stain on his back teeth that is not yet decay but with this habit it will create one soon. He also doesn't like to drink while he is eating. Dentist said to force him to take a drink after a few bits at meals to ensure he isn't squirreling away food.
