About a month ago I noticed a small brown colored pit in one of DSs (14 mo) top teeth. After a little bit of panic, I kicked into gear trying to heal it.
We are doing:
Brush 2xs a day with pascalite clay.
Spiffie xylitol wipe after lunch/snacks, also one right before nursing to sleep at night.
Packing on a small ball of pascalite directly on the cavity during naptime.
Started Vit D drops today.
Going to start with Cell Salts this weekend.
Right now, all the brown is gone, and it looks like a very shiny grey color. I'm guessing/hoping this is good right? There is also a greyish area on another tooth.
I'm still in a bit of a panic over this. Seeing photos would help me calm down and reassure me that I did not totally screw up and drop the ball with my sons teeth
I'd like to see what an early/minor cavity looks like? All the ones I google look SO horrific and not anything close to what we had going on, but I'm still beating myself up over this.... I'd also love to see any photos of what a healing cavity looks like so I can compare it to what his teeth look like right now.
DS only knows how to go to sleep with nursing. And he still dreamnurses (we bedshare) 1-3 times a night. Not sharing a bed with DS is not an option for us, and I dont see how it would be possible to nightwean him in the same bed, not to mention that at this point in time I think trying to wean him even a little would be very devastating for my little one.
Also, any other suggestions, tips, encouragement is welcome... I just feel awful right now. We are also really struggling with cleaning his teeth because he hates it. I'm trying to make it fun and sing songs and make a game of it, but he is not falling for it. He liked the spiffies at first, and now he fights it and it makes me feel like he thinks I'm being mean.
