  • Dentist #1...I've had my dentist tell me that also. I think dentist #2 just knows he'll make more money if he fills them. lol

  • Had 3 different dentist tell me if they don't hurt then let the baby teeth fall out and be replaced with the adult. I did choose to fill two that were very discolored on his front teeth though.

  • Dentist #2 is just trying to get more money. If the adult teeth are looking like they're about to come up, I wouldn't worry too much then.

  • depends on his age if he is over 5 i think its fine but either way i would get a third opinion, make sure they know that you are only getting an opinion (so they know they wont gain anything if they tell you to fill)
