so, a few weeks ago i noticed that my baby's front tooth looked like it had chipped but only the outer enamel.  both the ped and dentist both said there's nothing to do for it (which i was relieved about... i was worried we'd have to have it fixed with sedation).  today, i noticed his other front tooth has a similar (but smaller) area that has chipped away- again, just the outer layer. 

i have so many thoughts swirling through my head... he was on mega antibiotics as an infant for pyelonephritis, and then also on amoxicillin (first) and bactrim (second) prophylaxis for months.  these were really tough choices for us, as we avoid antibiotics as much as possible and our two older children have been extremely healthy.  could the antibiotics (esp amox.) have done damage to his developing tooth enamel??  is there anything i can do to help his teeth heal or stop further chipping?  i've been reading the threads about healing decay, but i'm not sure if i should follow the same steps?  has anyone experienced this before?

i went through the same trauma with my little son. Started with just a little mark on his front tooth. Within a month or so his inscisors had crumbled away and more teeth he is five now and has had no new decay for two years. we found a dentist in pocatello ID Drs Misner and Bybee, their approach was nutrition. we did the SCD (specific carbo hydrate diet) for three months and it rocked our world. the decay stopped. basically we "fixed" his gut.  Check out Rami Nagels book "curing tooth decay"  he condenses 60 years of research and thousands of years of know how and his protocol is exactly what our holistic dentist recommended.  Get on it, those soft little teeth go fast.
