My son has a genetic abnormality, he was born with no enamal on his teeth- two weeks after his very first tooth erupted, before it was even in compleatly it was turning brown and you could see visible cavities. he was 7 months old, so I made an apointment for a dentist at childrens hospital wisconsin asap-
Anyway in the end, after all his teeth had came in (he is now 17 months) 8 of the teeth were distroyed. They needed to be crowned, but the dentist wouldnt do it until he hit 2.
I threw a fit about a montha go, because his temporary fillings kept coming out, and I was tired of waititng, and I didnt want him to be toothless before he hit two- that day, I touched his tooth to examin it, and one of them broke off at the base into my hand. I called the dentist balling my eyes out- got an apotment 2 days later and they finally agreed to go on and do the dental reconstruction. at 17 months (which was today) I said he was in extream pain, and his breath was horrible, and his gums were very swollen assuming there was an infection (3 weeks ago at our apotment) and the dentist said there was no signs of infection and they didnt want to put him on antibiotics if there wasnt any infection going on.
today was his dental reconstruction. They ended up having to pull two of the 8 teeth. upon pulling the first he realised that there was a raging infection, and had to pull the pne next to it as well- the infection was so horrible and out of hand it made it all the way to his roots so he said there is a good chance the adult teeth were distroyed. He could have giving him antibiotics when I said I thought there was in infection 3 weeks ago- but he didnt listen, and now my son may never get teeth in those two spots- I want to SUE HIM- I want to do one better, I want to murder him. I dont know what to do. Or how im supposed to eel about this. plese mamas. any suggestions, insite. words of kindness, would be much appreciated.
