Q.

3 YEAR OLD WITH BAD TOOTH ACHE

MY LITTLE GIRL FELL WHEN SHE WAS 1 YEAR OLD AND CHIPPED BOTH HER FRONT TEETH.

MY MAID LOOKED AFTER HER DURING THE DAY AND WHILE SHE WAS STILL ON THE BOTTLE SHE GAVE HER COKE AND NESQUICK TO DRINK DURING THE DAY AT NAP TIME. THAT CAUSED THE FRONT TEETH AND SOME OF HER OTHER TEETH ASWELL TO ROT.

NOW SHE IS 3 YEARS OLD AND HER TEETH LOOK HORRIBLE !!!

AND NOW FOR THE LAST 2 DAYS SHE HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING THE WORST TOOTH ACHE !!! SHE DOESNT WANT TO EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING BECAUSE EVERYTHING CAUSES HER TOOTHACHE. SHE WILL THEN CRY FOR 4-5 HOURS CONSTANTLY EVEN AFTER I HAVE GIVEN HER PAIN MEDS..

WE ARE GETTING A MEDICAL AID IN JAN 2008 , BUT UNTIL THEN ISNT THERE MAYBE SOMETHING THAT I CAN USE OR DO TO EASE HER PAIN ..??

I AM REALLY DESPERATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MANY THANKS
