If anyone can please give me some info that would be great. My 2.3 year old daughter is slated to have her front four teeth pulled out next week. What care should I provide after her surgery? I still nurse her at night.


I also have recently started to use xylitol and have seen her discolored teeth beginning to turn white? I am wondering if I can postpone her extraction until she is little older.


Anyone with this experience please help. Just hurting with the idea of my girl going through this pain.


Thank you.

We use xylitol, though not as frequently as I would like. Our 8 year old had some cavities last year, a few of which we did decide to get filled (with non-metal fillings). 


Our dentist's office carries the CariFree brand, which I ended up getting for my oldest:
