My 18 month old DS has demineralization on three of his front teeth. I've already started increasing the frequency of toothbrushing, and I'm going to tweak his diet, and try some supplements (so far I've bought Calcarea phos, Natural Dentist Mouthwash for kids, and various Xylitol products). I'm overwhelmed by all the options out there, so I was hoping you all could recommend your favorite supplemnts, the ones that have helped remineralize your toddler's teeth? Also, I've read in more than one thread about people who put drops of tea tree oil (or grapefruit seed extract?) in their children's mouth after nursing to sleep. What's that all about? What is the ratio of tea tree oil to water? How is the tea tree oil delivered (with a dropper?). Thanks! Any advice is welcome. I'd like to do whatever I can to make sure DS's demineraliztion doesn't turn into cavitities, and nightweaning is not an option (although this was my dentist's only recommendation!).
