My 10 month old son has four upper teeth and two on the bottom. He is on a infant formula with extra calcium. I have recently noticed white and gray colored spots on the teeth. I have also noticed the teeth are rounded in the center and more square on the ends. Is this normal?

Could the formula have caused calcium deposits or is this a cavity forming? Should I be worried? Could he have fallen and hurt his teeth? Margie in KY

Margie, not to worry. At this point, let the teeth fully erupt and then re-evaluate. The white spots are usually calcified areas which are not carious/cavities.

The good thing is that when these teeth are lost, you usually do not see the same things on the permanent teeth. If it would make you feel more comfortable, contact your pediatric dentist and have a consultation.
