14.5 month old DD has 2 cavities, and her pediatric dentist thinks they're just getting worse, but I think they look about the same. 1 is very small. The other, a chunk of her tooth has chipped off. We're treating them aggressively with brushing and WAP principles. How can I tell if they're getting worse or better. The dentist thinks it's continuing to chip off, but to me, it looks about the same as it did a few months ago. Is there any way to be objective? Somebody (who may or may not know) told me that the color changes if it's growing or if it's stopped growing. Does anybody know anything more about that? Her dentist wants to just put her under GA now and fix them. I think the experience would be pure hell and want to avoid it if at all possible, but I don't want them to have to do something worse later. How do I know if it's gotten bad enough that we need to just go in and take care of it?
