Hello Ladies, I need to take my 17 month old daughter to a paediatric dentist. A part of her top lateral incisor has broken off and she's got brown marks on them, caries I suppose. :-( It is spreading to the other top incisors. Never noticed anything until a part of her tooth fell off! I got a reference from my paed. The dentist's flyer states 'Stop breastfeeding your child at 1 year'. My baby still needs to be breastfed to take her naps and to sleep at night. I've read mixed literature on caries in relation to breastfeeding. Some say .. yeah it does, some say no it doesn't. Does anyone know of a dentist in Chennai who is pro-breastfeeding? LO has got all of her incisors and her molars are popping up. She is given sweets / fizzy drinks on rare occassions. But she has raisins daily. She absolutely hates the toothbrush and will not show her mouth to be cleaned. It is a struggle every day. She doesnt like me to even clean her teeth with a washcloth. ANother thing... do we really need to clean her tongue? My MIL and maid insist on it and Im thinking its part of the reason she hates her mouth to be touched. Thanks in advance. Sylvia.
