My pediatric dentist wants to put crowns on my 2 yr old's top teeth. To do this, he plans on using medication and sedatives. My 2 yr old has only ever taken tylenol once or twice so the thought of serious drugs makes me very uneasy. Are crowns really necessary? They're baby teeth so they'll be gone at some point. My child doesn't seem to be in any pain. I have her on a strict, healthy diet but I guess genetics just aren't in her favor when it comes to strong teeth. I ordered her a new toothpaste, I don't allow junk food, and I brush her teeth regularly. If I stay on top of these things, will it keep her teeth from getting worse? I know there's no making them "better" at this point but I'll do all I can to keep them from getting worse. Once the damage starts, is it unstoppable even with proper hygiene and diet? Will her teeth get worse no matter what I do if she doesn't get crowns? I'd really like to avoid this.Answer Question
