Q.

Tooth mouse remineraliser

My son shows white patches on his teeth, particularly next to the gumline, although also elsewhere on tooth surface. We were told it is permanent (calcification) and due to bad oral hygiene even though he brushed regularly etc... it was recommended we use a tooth mouse developed in Australia to remineralise the teeth. very expensive and four months later not the slightest difference. I feel very bad for my son as he is a teenager and wont smile...What is this mouse really for, and, any other remedy for the white patches?

I have not heard of the "tooth mouse".
There is no remedy for the patches. They may be covered with a composite/veneer when he gets older.
