My brother in law's kids all had teeth so rotten they had to be pulled before they were even 3. I didn't expect anything else though because both of them have moss mouth. If you don't give a damn about your teeth, then you're probalby not going to give a damn about brushing your kids teeth. I call that lazy, disgusting and borderline child abuse. I grew up with a mother who neglected her own oral health as well as mine and there were times I cried in agony as a child because my teeth hurt so badly.
My dd hit her two front teeth when she fell at school and now one of them is discolored or essentially bruised. Nothing can be done about it and it wont heal. Luckily its just her baby tooth. It wasnt a lack of good oral hygiene though. You just really never know what happened.
Quoting mrsrodgers0703:How would you possibly know whether or not a child has a medical condition that affects the teeth?
Quoting quickbooksworm:And you take a full medical history on every child you encounter? You are qualified to make the decisions on how and what dental procedures every child should get?
Apparently you don't understand how dental issues truly work. Most issues are inherited and no amount of brushing or flossing will prevent those issues.
Quoting Thomasmom07:How would you know by looking at a child if they had a medical problem that affects their teeth? My ds doesn't have a medical problem but his front 2 teeth are black not because I didn't take care of them but because he fell outside and busted his mouth and killed the nerves in his teeth. Does that make me a bad mom? NO...
