DD 6 chipped her front tooth when she was 2. Now it looks like there is a cavity in between her front teeth. Its turning a little brown. What do I do? What would a dentist do? She will lose these teeth eventually, and we brush at least twice a day. :(

What did the dentist say when you brought her in?

Have you ever taken her to the dentist yet?

Bring her to the regular doctor and ask. If you being her to a dentist they might say they need to yank it out even if they don't need to.

You don't want to risk infection in the tooth. It's just a baby tooth and will fall out eventually but I would take her to the dentist to ask them about it. They may want to pull it out.  Infection and cavitites that go unchecked can cause ***SERIOUS*** complications in children, even baby teeth.

Christ why don't people take their children to the dentist and doctors like they should.

My kids went when they got their first tooth and if my childs sick or injured I take them to the doctor.

 I don't ask a bunch of high school drop outs and SAHM's on cafe mom to guess what's wrong and tell me how I can fix it.

Only a dentist can answer that question for you.

It can take like 6 months for it to lighten back up.

You need to watch for an abscess (infection) which can eventually lead to damage to the permanent tooth underneath. A dentist can tell you if anything is wrong with an xray. I'd take him in.

Yep. My son had that. They only did something once it started hurting.
