On the up side, when she loses her baby teeth you can leave a quarter under her pillow then take then to a pawn shop and make a profit.

I really hate it when mom feeds her 4 year old so much sugary crap and doesn't brush her teeth so that her teeth are rotting out of her head at four years old.

I'd bet quite a bit that there was "juice*" in the bottle at bedtime.

And four is too young to have lost all those missing front teeth, which means they were rotten and fell out or were pulled.

I've never been asked to leave the room when taking my 4 year old to the dentist. Then again, my daughter's teeth aren't rotting out of her head to begin with.

Mine does, but they come out and check with me before they do anything at all more than look around in there. My kids have never had cavities, but I know when they are even doing the flouride treatment. I had to sign a permission form before they took xrays.

I had to have caps like that put in when I was that age. According to my mom, the dentist blamed drinking too much apple juice and not enough milk. All I wanted when I was 4 years old was to drink apple juice all day every day and my parents let me do it. My dad actually took to calling me jaws and thought the whole thing was hilarious. Thanks mom and dad.

Cool. Like I said, I'm old, my 'kid' is 30. They didn't cap teeth when he was little, just filled or yanked the little farkers out. Me, I loves my dentist office, laser cured fillings FTW. Quite literally 10 seconds of blue laser (I don't know if it's REALLY laser, but that's what they call it. I'm a data analyst, not a dentist), and filling is fine, go eat popcorn if you want. And the big Q-Tips impregnated with the numbing gel for before you get the shot. I like those too.

That a 4 year-old even has a cavity is bad enough. That she has enough decay happening that she needs to have all of her teeth capped is scary.
 
2013-01-15 12:09:39 PM
That's only done in cases of severe decay where their afraid the rotting baby teeth will ruin the incoming adult teeth. I'd like to see a before picture, the kid probably looked like a meth addict

I think it's UV light that cures the resin.
Also, i prefer to get the shot and the gas when getting fillings. The sound of a drill makes me cringe. I grew up with my dentist. he shot me with a BB gun once, so i guess he owes me.

We have fluoridated water. We brush with fluoride toothpaste, he has 2 older brothers with 1 cavity between them (indicating that our diet is not at issue) while we do drink juice it's cut 50/50 with water. We don't have bottles in our house, so it's not like we filled one with juice and put him to bed.

Maybe it's genetic? He's got weak enamel? Maybe a high fever left him with soft teeth? How the hell would I know the cause?

But I think you're all being overly judgmental.

When my daughter was younger, the only time she didn't have a parent with her at any doctors office was when she was having XRays, because everybody is out of the room, and when she had her eye surgery.

My daughter just turned 30 and she had all her adult teeth sealed, too. No cavities (yet), but I understand tooth sealant doesn't last forever. Do they put a second coat on?

An old childhood friend of my wife has been giving dr. pepper to her 5 y/o since he was 2. They live out of state, so I haven't seen pictures, but can't imagine that would be good. We took our 4 y/o daughter to the dentist the other day for her 1st visit and she came out totally clean.

When my kids were young and still had baby teeth, we had a dentist recommend that my son get all his teeth capped. Evidently he was prone to tooth decay.

I'm glad they checked with us instead of just doing it. They are baby teeth. They didn't need to be capped. We just kept up on his dental hygene better, and we never had any trouble.

It's a shame that this dentist just jumped the gun like that.

//Poor kid...
 
2013-01-15 12:28:16 PM
Putting caps on a small child's teeth IS SOP when they come in full of cavities like that. You have a choice as a parent: take care of your kid's teeth or the dentist will have to take care of them for you.

People saying "they're just baby teeth" really ought to be aware that rot from baby teeth can effect the permanent teeth as well. Take care of your damn kids' teeth.

I had my adult teeth sealed waaaay back in the day, and was told that the sealants would eventually come off on their own through wear and tear. Most of them are still there, and I'm nearly 30.

Came to this thread expecting to see people saying to stop feeding your crotch spawn 5 kilos of sugar per day in the form of soda, candy, and cereal. And at least one person saying they know someone that had teeth like this and it is standard dentistry.
Leaving well-satisfied.

UV light makes total sense. They may have actually told me that, but my mind thinks "laser sounds cool, let's go with laser". :)

I used to get the shot and gas, not because of the drill sound (I'm the one who watches for smoke drifting up from my mouth and thinks "cool"), but the shots never really took very well for me. Then they changed formulations of the numbing stuff they use, and it works ever so much better. Totally numb, but without the long lasting face-sliding-off feeling of yore. Half an hour later, I have all the feeling back.

When I had a molar pulled last year, he had just gotten it fully extracted and I dentist-speak "can I see it?" and he did the most awesome Vanna White impression with my bloody tooth in the forceps. He offered to send it home with me, but I declined.

Your dentist SHOT you? Not sure I'd have let him anywhere near me....

(I keed. And I'm assuming he shot you when you both were much younger?)

It can depend on the mouth.  My son is two and has cavities in his front teeth that the dentist is keeping an eye on.  She says it has nothing to do with his diet (we were very honest with what he did and didn't eat), but the fact that his front two teeth on top and bottom don't have spaces between them like most other kids, so food is getting trapped there.  So we have to brush and floss in there really well with prescription toothpaste.  (We even put toothpaste on the flosser and work it in there).  So he doesn't just brush his teeth like other toddlers.  He has to lay down and hold his mouth open while mom "gets the sugar bugs out".
