I have a 2 year old and 4 year old, and both seem to have pretty decent teeth.

My 4 year old had one tiny cavity about a year ago, and we got it filled. It was a real nightmare, and I hope to never have to go through that again!

We've been pretty diligent about brushing her teeth since then, and she chews zylitol gum. I do not, and will not use fluoride.

I've recently noticed that two of her bottom molars each have a little hole in them. Almost like tiny pin holes. They are not dark or discoloured. Are these cavities? If so, is there a way to reverse it at this stage?


My kids are vegetarian and don't drink cow's milk.
