My 2-year-old dd has a white spot on the side of one of her front teeth. What is that? She has no dark spots and we usually brush her teeth 2 times a day (and she plays with the toothbrush all the time and chews on it). I was thinking that flourosis caused white spots but the only times that she's ever had flouride was when she got some of our toothpaste (I accidentally bought some Tom's that had flouride in it).
She hasn't seen a dentist yet - is the recommended age 3? I can't imagine how they could even get her to open her mouth at this point.
Also, does anyone have any really good links that are anti-flouride? Our ped is pushing prescription flouride drops. I thought the AAP was anti flouride before 3?
