Have you seen this tooth cleaner from tropical traditions?: http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/teeth_cleaner.htm
Your kids should like this.....I get the mint and it has the same minty flavor as conventional toothpaste, but not spicy. My 3 yo liked it right away.
Have you looked into the possibility of gluten intolerance/celiac? Tooth decay is a classic symptom of celiac. Ds had major problems, the dentist called it "bottle rot" and said it was from night nursing. It all stopped when we went GF. Obviously there are other reasons, too, but this is one to be considered as well.
|The one thing I didn't mention, that I remembered later (it was a lot of information to take in as he was telling me what he wanted to do)...apparently he wants to put an amalgam "crown" of sorts over the horribly rotted bottom "large" tooth (I really need to look up what all these little buggers are actually called). I do NOT want amalgam in her mouth, or anywhere near it. Anyone know what I can ask for instead? I know it will be more expensive, but I don't care. No metal for my baby, thanks.
Thanks for all your support!
