My daughter is 16m old, we live in Oklahoma and are being told she needs 3 root canals and 3 fillings. They say its from acid reflux and that night nursing has made it worse. :( They say she needs this done before she is 2. I have been reading some of the threads here and went out and purchased Xylitol toothpaste and a product called dentizyne kidz. It was highly recommended at the health food store for killing bacteria in the mouth. I also read about some type of salts here that make the teeth strong that I will be checking into as well. I have been searching my heart out for a dentist that does healozone treatments and there is just no such thing anywhere close to me. Please give me advice on what more I can do. I am still breastfeeding but she does not get much milk anymore. I limit sweets and brush quite often. I dont want my baby put to sleep for root canals. :( Also if it matters, I am vegetarian, but lo does get milk and dairy.

I am so sorry you and your daughter are going through this! Have you been able to see another dentist for a second opinion or alternative treatment? If at all possible, I would see what your options are. I have heard good things about xylitol and I use a rinse and my two sons use a toothpaste containing it. I think it is more of a prevention than a cure though.
