I am really scared. My baby is almost 22 months old and his 4 front teeth are rotting. One is almost gone the other 3 have dark brown lines along the gum area. I have read everything I could get my hands on about the anesthesia the dentist say my son will have to use. I have read it wasn't even made to be used on children and that it's basically just experience that has taught pediatric dentist how to use it on children. They don't have studies or specific anesthesia for children. I also read that death is a side effect of just about any anesthesia they use at the dentist. Even if it is local sedation. They say however that he will have to be put under which is the most dangerous as I'm sure you all know.
This terrifies me. I'm scared that he will get an infection if I don't take him to the dentist and may die. I'm scared he may die at the dentist (which many children have).
I'm researching everything I can to see if I can find something to help his tooth or enamel to regrow. I'm scared it might not work and that someone may see his teeth and report me to children services. I feel we are dam*ed it we do and dam*ed if we don't.
I don't think I have ever felt so desperate.
I just dont' know what to do. Is there anyone here that has this same problem and was able to do something about it naturally?
I already know that he shouldn't drink juices and sugars or be allowed to allow these things to sit on his gums and teeth and to wipe them down often. What else can be done? Has anyone succeeded in regrowing enamel? Any suggestions are welcomed.
