What has happened to my children's teeth?
Q: I am a mother of 5 year old twin boys.Their teeth got spoilt when they were 4 years. In fact one has very tiny stubs left as remnants of the top front teeth. Now they can understand and brush their teeth well twice a day. My question is will they have any problem in getting their new teeth? Will the front teeth be crooked? What measures can I take so that they get a healthy set of teeth?
A:You need to strictly follow preventive instructions. This means: - Brushing twice daily - Rinsing mouth after every meals - Avoiding sugar and sugar containing substances including ice creams and cold drinks. You can then go to a paediatric dentist for further management.
