<p>DS has what looks like dirty teeth. Even when we brush (which ends up in us holding him down). The dentist was looking at his molar and said the looked decalcified and asked me if I took tetracycline during pregnancy, which I did not. He then mentioned it may be genetic. If it is, he is the first on either side of his family to display this trait.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>His teeth come in looking like this, they are super sharp, and yellowed. Now that some of his teeth are all the way in, you can see where it's only the bottom half of the tooth that has this problem. The half close to the gums look pretty normal.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've been searching to try and find some information about this, but none of the pictures really look like DSs teeth. I am also getting conflicting information about if it's 'baby bottle mouth' or not.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is there anything that can be done? I did a search of the forum and didn't yield much information. I will post a picture if I can encourage him to open his mouth.</p>

<p>my son was said to have baby bottle mouth. it started with some white spots that seemed like food build up that we just couldn't wash away.  then it became dents, then they began to brown.  His started at the gum line though.</p>

<p>My dd had enamel defects due to food intolerances. She was not absorbing nutrients due to the inflammation and gut damage. Her enamel just flaked off. Thankfully, thankfully I read about gluten intolerance and celiac disease and decided to go gluten free and we turned a corner. She is off gluten, dairy, soy, and eggs now and her teeth are beautiful and have remineralized!</p>

<p>Off to google about the salts, Is there any more info you can tell me? This is the first I have heard.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Where there any other signs or symptoms to signify an allergy? Removing gluten would be a MAJOR overhaul for us (which I will do if it will help). I don't see anything else that would tell me something was wrong. He doesn't really have unusual BMs or anything else. We are an average American house (well, DH is) so gluten free would be... difficult. I would need a DR to tell DH that its an issue. Otherwise I am taking away all the foods DH eats :(</p>
