Question:
My daughter is 5 years old and lived with my parents but is now back with me. Her top teeth are all broken with pieces in the gum.

It is rotten and she constantly complains of pain. What do I do? ...Visitor from South Africa

Answer:
Your daughter is much too young to have these problems.

It sounds like she and her parents would benefit from being instructed by the dentist on how to care for her teeth. Eating habits and food choices may also be involved.

She needs to see a pediatric dentist for treatment. It may be worthwhile to investigate the possibility of using a dental sealant on her remaining healthy teeth.
