Baby Dental – Two Cavities

Friday, Apr. 15th 2022 6:22 AM

My son is three years old and already had two cavities.  I am a little lost as to why.  I make sure he brushes is teeth after breakfast and diner.  I even floss his teeth for him at night before going to bed. Making him rinse out his mouth afterwords.

What am I doing wrong?  When the dentist said he had two small cavities I about died.  I know this dentist for over sixteen years so I know he is not just making things up.  How can I avoid him from getting more cavities?  I want him to have good teeth.  I know they are just baby teeth but I worried that his adult teeth could be the same.

    Maybe your child just has week tooth enamel. Leaving his teeth open to tooth decay. This happens often, so you may want to talk to your dentist about having sealants done on your son’s teeth. Sealants will help protect your son’s teeth from tooth decay.

    Do not beet yourself up over it. Children can get cavities. The key is being aware of it and staying pro active. I agree with the last reply ask your dentist about dental sealants.

    Did you talk to your son’s dentist to see if your son teeth are more prone to getting cavities? See what advise your son’s dentist can give.
