Q.

decaying teeth

My son is 3 years old. he goes to nursery school. His top front 4 teeth are all half way down gone dark brown. Now, we at home brush his teeth at night, and he is suppose to get his teeth brushed at school every morning after breakfast. I noticed his teeth about 2 months ago. He used to drink alot of coke. We have stopped this as this is probably the cause.

I am taking him to the dentist on Wednesday only. What is this, is there anything that can be done, to get the teeth white again. They are milk teeth and will only fall out when he reaches about 7 years old. But i dont want him to have his teeth looking like that for another 4 years and also let them get worse.

Please advise. Thank you.

the teeth are decayed.They will most likely need to be extracted if they are severly damaged. If they are not too badly decayed they can be restored with a white filling -see a dentist
