I saw a black spot on my 10 month old tooth. so I took him to the dentist yesterday to find out he has bottle rot, all four of his front teeth are decayed. at this rate he wont have those teeth much longer, the dentist spoke of extracting the two eye teeth and trying to save the others. My heart is broken. I brushed his teeth every night, they were all coming in so nicely, he has 9 teeth, and I thought they were fine, to my suprise its the exact oppisite. The dentist said its because I put him to bed with a bottle. Her advice was to STOP fomula, NO JUICE, and only water thoughout the day, and milk twice a day with meals. also to use act mouthwash and fluoride toothpaste after EVERY single thing he ingests. My heart is broken, has anyone else delt with this, and was there babies smile saved, or lost?Answer Question
