Hi All,

My 3 yr old has a spot that overlaps his front two teeth so I'm not terribly surprised that he needs fillings there but the dentist said he needed others as well as several for his 5 yr old brother. This does surprise me. Anyway I don't want to just surrender as I'm worried about the BPA in fillings. Any advice? I've been trying to read up on the subject and so far I've come up with xylitol. Do you have a non-gmo brand your kids like? What else can we do?
