Q.

Sore Teeth

Hi Doc,

My daughter is complaining of her teeth being sore, it sounds like her teeth are sensitive to the touch eg. when she brush her teeth.... maybe its her gums, not sure.

She is 3 going on 4, I brush her teeth everynight with a golgate childrens toothpaste, she doesn''t have sweets during the week, only weekend but she loves to chew hard sweets and ice instead of sucking on them.

She has 1 glass of juice a day and enough water. Eats well too!

What can be the reason for her teeth being sore / sensitive.

It's difficult to say without seeing her - it could be decay , could be the gums or too hard brushing amongst other things.
