My son is 3.5. I help him brush his teeth twice and sometimes three times a day. But why are they discolored? Shouldnt they be white? My 1 yr old's teeth are white. What am I doing wrong here? Just looking at his teeth..they look like I dont brush them at all. He just went to bed and after brushing them they look the same!

I never considered that. My son was putting the toothpaste on..until a few days ago. He would put a crap load on and I would have to scrape alot of it off. He would get mad at me. lol


Quoting rockabillybetty:

Maybe your using too much tooth paste




Quoting ZakkarysMom:

They werent always like this. It happened recently. I read somewhere that too much fluoride in drinking water can discolor your teeth. Its driving me crazy. lol My parents gave up making my siblings and i keep up with dental hygiene. I have never taken good care of my teeth so they are discolored. Im trying to avoid that with my children.

My oldest sons permanent teeth are like that. I asked the dentist and she said that some people's teeth are just like that.

LOL Now that i think about it..until recently i wasnt helping him rinse. We are still working on the spitting the toothpaste out too. Before I would just brush them and that was it. I wonder if thats why?

Not really no. If he does get juice I mix it half and half with water. He likes chocolate milk alot.
