Her teeth!!! :( user banned
25th May '13

Last night I noticed DD had a light brown spot on her tooth. Today all four of her top teeth, just below her gums have light brown spots. Should she be using a flouride toothpaste or are her baby teeth just going to rot out her head? I want to take her to the pediatrician now... shit like this always happens on the weekends.

Well how old is she? The training toothpaste stopped cleaning my kid's teeth when they were like 18 months. I has to teach them to spit. Has she ever gone to the dentist?

That's weird.
My kids use fluoride toothpaste and the dentist also puts fluoride on their teeth. How old your dd? And yes it always happens on the weekends!

How old is she?



Fluoride turns cavities brownish, my 2yr old has a small cavity on a side tooth that we've been watching, getting fluoride treatments every 3 months and using fluoride toothpaste 2-3x a day.

She's 12 months. We've been using water and a non flouride tooth paste on her. She hasn't seen a dentist yet. Should I switch to flouride toothpaste? This is freaking me out. :(

If she can't spit then no. She also should be seeing a dentist on a regular basis.

my twins are 13 months and I still use non floride. Does the LO go to bed with a bottle? It may be what I've always heard of as "bottle rot."

My dd is 12 months and I use fluoride I use a very very small amount I can't even really see it on her toothbrush. I don't think most dentists see them until at least 12 months. My kids doesn't. My dd has her first appt next month. Op, I would just schedule a dental appt for her.

In Oki they told me not to use fluoride toothpaste on my 5 year old. She ended up with a cavity after we switched to non-fluoride (a while after, not right away). We took her to the dentist here, and they said fluoride toothpaste is better, not just for my 5yo, but my 2yo & 3yo, too.

A pediatric dentist would want to see them as soon as they pop their first tooth. That's the recommendation. It's just for preventative measures and getting them use to being in the chair.

Yeah my kids have always been late at getting teeth. My dd got her two abour 2 months ago lol and my son was 9 months when he got his two. Well not late but later than some I guess is what I mean. Everytime I take my son to the dentist I'm always so scared he will have a cavity or something. I would honestly probably never forgive myself. I mean I know it happens but still. My SO niece us three and still hasn't been to a dentist they let her sleep with a Sippy of kool aid too. And don't brush her teeth. It's awful.

She's breastfed, so it's not bottle rot.



I found a pediatric dentist in the same plaza as her pediatrician, that accepts her insurance. *Sigh of relief* Gonna set it up!

That doesn't matter. Breast fed kids can have oral issues as well
