Cavity on a baby's tooth

User Level:
Posted by: molaraches  (8 years ago)
Hello everyone,

I am a first time mom and my daughter who is 9 months old now has a cavity on her front tooth.
The tooth beside it is just popping up. I brush her teeth without a toothpaste. I am worried that
the cavity will affect her other teeth. Should I bring her to the dentist? My mom said, I should only bring her to the dentist at the age of three.

Please give me some advice.

I would be grateful for your answers!

Cavities in children's teeth should be treated as soon as possible for your child's health. Bring your daughter to a specialist trained in the dental care of children.

If the cavity is not that bad, you can ask your dentist for a toothpaste which can remineralize the teeth.
