Have your children had any dental work done (cavity filled, crown, extraction, etc)? At what age?
At what age did you allow them to brush their teeth by themselves?
I ask this b/c my friend's daughter at the age of 4yr had to have a TON of dental work done and now another friend's son at 5yr is having a filling and a crown. I can understand a filling, but 'major' work? I can't remember the age I had my first filling, but I had all my grown teeth. I just don't know......is it genetic to have bad teeth or poor teeth care?
Our daughter goes to the dentist Monday. This will be the 3rd time she's been. She is terrified of the dentist and hasn't had xrays done. Each time they have said her teeth look good. But then again even tho she's 4yr I still help her brush her teeth.
