My Young Daughter’s Teeth Are Decaying And Discoloured. Is There Anything That Can Be Done For Her?

Hello Dr Patel. My daughter who is 4, has two front teeth that are worn and very discoloured and unsightly looking, I understand these are her baby teeth, but she is already self conscious about them and won’t smile. She also has three back teeth that are decayed and I believe this is due to drinking milk in the night. Is there anything that can be done for her? Her front teeth in particular are chipped and worn with
a thin bit of tooth remaining that makes it look like she has one thin tooth in the centre! As she is now affected by her appearance which is worrying as she is only four! Your opinion is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards. 

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. It is quite normal for baby teeth to wear down as the front ones normally fall out around this age with big teeth erupting around 4-8 years old. With regards to the back teeth they need to be assessed by a dentist to prevent potential pain, infection or damage to the developing permanent teeth underneath. Go and find a dentist and take her for a check up please. I hope this helps. Best wishes, Dr Riten Patel.
