Thanks for the info, SleeplessMommy (and the bump, rebelmama!). We've also done sealants on the molars, and I am optimistic that will help immensely. I am currently looking up more on actually re-mineralizing her teeth. Turns out dh's bro also had major dental issues as a child, so I am considering the possibility that this may have a genetic component and not just be all my fault! Anyway, I am trying to increase her consumption of mineral water and other things that may help change the mineral content of her saliva. Any thoughts? Also, I am considering switching her over to a minerally rich toothpaste, and not just rely on fluoride. Contrary to my desires, we had her on fluoridated toothpaste, but clearly that hasn't been the answer to her issues. . . .
