Q.

Toddler teeth

Hi,

My son is 17 months old. Ever since his first front tooth appeared when he was 9 months old, it has been stained yellow. The rest of his teeth are fine. We brush his teeth twice a day, but struggle to get the yellow spot to go away. Is there anything I can use to help? He doesn’ t like brushing as it seems the bristles tickles his gums, so it is always a struggle.

it could be an intrinsic discoloration- quite common in children. he should see a dentist for his first checkup soon though
