Q.

Toddlers teeth stained brown

My daughter is 2 years old, recent completed a course of antibiotics but i notice that her teeth are stained brown. Is this caused by the antibiotics and does this mean that it will eventually rot and have to be extracted? Is there anyting that a dentist could perhaps do?

It is unlikely for the discoloration to be caused by just 1 course of antibiotics. LEt the dentist first consult and see if it is indeed antibiotic related
