How can a parent identify dental caries

Friday, Oct. 23rd 2009 4:47 AM

How can you tell if your baby has dental caries

I have a 14 months old son and his teeth are in good shape.  I know this because we just came back from his dentist.  However when I was in the waiting room,  I heard the dentist talking to another mother and telling her that her baby has dental caries.  My understanding of carries is limited but I believe that it is really bad tooth decay.  The mother said that she did not see any signs of her baby teeth being bad.

So it got me to wonder are there signs.  Or can your child be ok one day and have carries the next?  I did not want to ask my dentist at the time since I did not want him to know I heard him talking to the other lady.  Any information would be good.
