My sons teeth are awful he has cavities in all his front 4 teeth as far as I can see his bottom ones are fine but my view of the rest at the top is not good i’m devastated. I don’t know what to do.
They’ve been bad for a couple months and just getting worse and worse he is only 3 and all the research I can find say he is going to have to have them pulled, how can a 3 year old go 5 years with no front teeth.
They get brushed twice a day but not for long he doesn’t mind his teeth being brushed on the bottom but won’t ever let me get to the top ones never has done and now this has happened and it’s all my fault and I don’t know what I’m gonna do.
I’ve been in tears for days just thinking of it, I know I need to do something or the next stage is them turning black getting infected and falling out.
He already has a chip in one of his front tooth from when he was a younger baby and so this adds to the bad look of them.
I feel I’ve set my son up for a lifetime of dental work and I’m heartbroken.
I can’t let him get them pulled out it’s just not fair, but they’re so bad and I know I’m risking things.
I can’t bring myself to book a dentist appointment. I’ve really messed up. Why did I never try harder..
He still drinks from a bottle at night, it’s his only comfort thing he has, no dummy or blanket or special toy. All he wants is his bottle and he gets very happy when he gets it at night and tonight he cried himself to sleep because I couldn’t give it to him, I just want my son to be happy though? He doesn’t understand why I’ve taken it away, he can’t speak and has limited understanding.
I don’t know what to do, I really don’t. I’m gutted, so gutted, absolutely devastated…my poor boy…..
I just needed to rant. Does anyone have any advice or ever had a kid with such bad teeth? Will he face being picked on with no front teeth? How will it affect him? Omg.
