Just FYI, there is a dental condition called soft enamel. It leaves the enamel porous and susceptible to the bacteria that causes cavities. When a
child has this condition, cute baby teeth are horribly subject to decay. Regular brushing and flossing may not be enough. Innocuous things like
juice and milk, hasten the decay and the teeth quickly crumble.
Often, in these cases, the only way to protect the tooth buds growing beneath the baby teeth, is to cap them. Although parents may feel they have
failed their children, or others may think they have done so, it is the condition that causes the problem. The only way to guard against further
decay in this situation, besides or in addition to the capping, is frequent brushing, brushing after every drink or food item, and use of antiplaque
How do I know this? I am one of those parents who did everything right by the book with her child, and he still suffered from the condition, it is
i hope this info helps others understand, it is not necessarily neglect that causes dental problems.
