    Hi, my daughter is suffering from severe tooth sensitivity. I think her tooth has been damaged. She loves eating ice creams. Last day, while we went for the weekend outing, she didn't even try to eat ice cream because it was very painful for her. The problem that I am facing right now is, she...

    Breastfeeding bestows innumerable benefits to babies, so much so that scientists are still counting the perks. And it's not just the breastmilk that has researchers talking, but the very act of feeding at the breast versus a bottle. From eye-tracking development to oxytocin-boosting touch, to...

    Hi, Everyone! I was recently, basically, berated by the dentist for not wanting to get an x-ray and get my DS's cavities filled conventionally. To say the least, it wasn't a pleasant experience. Anyway, I have a 3.5 year old whose cavities I am trying to heal naturally. I've read through many...

Dentist advised for Root canal treatment (crown is not necessary) for my front tooth 8 weeks ago. Now, I am in 6th week of...

    <p>My 3 year old daughter just had all four of her front teeth capped 2 days ago.  There is some blood around the gums on a couple of her teeth.  I notice it most after she brushers her teeth or has something to drink.  I have wiped dried blood off of her lip several times today.  When I look...

    I've never consistently brushed my 3 year old's teeth. I do watch his diet and avoid processed foods, hard candies, excessive juice, soda none at all. We eat an organic whoesome diet. At two years old the dentist said his teeth looked good.<br><br> We relocated and I just took him to a new...

    <p>What do I need to know? If work needs to be done, what should absolutely be avoided? We have access to porcelain fillings here (better?)? We're on the US/Mexico border, and so have access to cheap-ish dental care. I have a recommendation for someone, but I also work in health care here and...

    DD was born at 27 weeks, transitioned to oral feeds as quick as one could, got EBM for a year, and eats normally. She brushes her teeth (and we help) okay, but not great (a bit of an oral aversion, plus normal toddler-ness). She is now 2.5. She has been to the dentist twice now and they have no...

    <p>So here is our background: My 21 month old kiddo chipped her tooth about 4 months (17 months) back when she fell on a wooden toy. This seemed reasonable, and caused no pain. Then the tooth NEXT to that one chipped without any reason- no fall. Then the original chip crumbled or chipped again...

    My 18-month-old son developed some decay on his front teeth. I took him in to a pediatric dentist who recommends conscious sedation and fillings.<br><br> I'm looking for something I can do in the meantime to prevent further decay. I've been reading about coconut oil but not finding ways to use...

    <p>Hey, I am wondering if anyone know of a way to get dental sealants removed. My dentist just put sealants on my six-year-old's molars. Without my permission I need to add. I am so mad right now is there a way I can remove this junk myself or do I have to take him somewhere. What can I do?</p>

    Hi all,<br> I need to have an old filling replaced and I was wondering if anyone could advise on whether CEREC (ceramic) fillings are worth the very pricey €800 compared to a white filling which I can get free on my health plan. Which would be better for my overall health or would it...

    <div id="user_content_17530334"> <p>Does any one in SoCal have a dentist who does not do routine annual dental X-rays?<br><br> I have used the same dental practice for the last 30 yrs. The first dentist retired and sold it to the next dentist. I have always had a contentious concern about...
