what would you do about these problems in my 11 month old baby? the dark spot is probably a cavity. how to heal it? what about the lip tie? and the gum injury? 


She does not like strangers, or anyone fussing in her mouth, so dental work would probably be very scary for her. Any gentle options?

I definitely see the upper lip tie. I can't really see the cavity in the photo but upper lip ties can cause cavities in the upper front teeth because the milk tends to pool there. There are past threads about this that describes it in more detail. Here's one: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1291167/project-stop-the-cavities
