My 6 year old twins had bad acid reflux when they were born, they both now have 8 cavities each, don't know if this was the cause. they started complaining of sensitivity so I took them to the dentist who did a pulpotomy on a couple of molars each, about 3 weeks later they both developed a swelling full of puss on the side of the molar. He prescribed antibiotics and they have never been on them don't really want to start now. Do I have a choice? The dentist popped the bump to drain and it refilled. What else can I give to fight this infection, I'm so upset that I took them to the dentist. I have them doing mouth washes with salt and water, peroxide and I tried GSE. My girls are usually happy and now have been miserable and cranky because of it. Help.
