My 2 year old has been eating what we considered an extremely healthy diet since birth . Almost no sugar (i.e. somethong maybe 1x/2-3 months) lots of whole grains, beans, veggies, fruits etc. She had brown decay across her front 4 teeth that we noticed and when I took her to the dentist, he diagnosed 8 cavities. top four plus each 1 yr molar. I am doing everything I can to avoid the surgery required to fill these teeth and have got some good resultsfrom ideas presented in the detal forum. However, the book on Curing Tooth decay that i discovered through this forum proposes pretty much the opposite of the vegan diet- lots of meat and organ meat, lots of dairy etc. DD has a bunch of food sensitivities that I believe contributed to this too but we have introduced fish this week for the first time (in 20 years for me) in hopes of healing her teeth.
I would love to hear that other vegan kiddos have happy healthy teeth and that perhaps this is due to her food sensitivities and subsequent mineral absorbtion but am just not sure what to think. Would love to hear from y'all.
