Q.

4 year old teeth

my son had previous filling done under anesthetic. he bumped his mouth the other day and tooth chipped but not a clean break it seems to be crumbling??
he had not yet complained of any pain but i do see he needs more filling. he brushes twice a day but was on plenty antibiotics when he was younger, can this cause teeth to be weaker?

Yes antibiotics could cause weak teeth in children.
Have the broken teeth seen to immediately.
