Q.

4 year old teeth

Hello doc,

My nearly 4 year old little girl''s teeth seems to be yellow and very dirty at night....
We brush her teeth every night, with baby tooth paste and and 0-3 year tooth brush...
And then her teeth is white and clean.
Is there any reason why her teeth would be so extremely dirty at night??

Thank you so much for your time!!!!

It could be due to something your daughter is eating or drinking. Tea tends to do this and rooibos may be the cause if she drinks rooibos tea every day. Another possibility is an iron supplement such as found in Vidaylin M or other supplements.
