I am a nervous patient myself but had mentioned this to my dentist and she said normal but I just feel none of the other teeth are coming in this way.

I haven’t managed to get her registered at a local dentist as been told full and my one I feel doesn’t help. I had been keen to for her to see someone. Just now I try brush her teeth after breakfast well she takes the toothbrush and chews then at night after bottle is more harder as she falls asleep! I sometimes waken or let her sleep. I am unsurr if doing right thing or if better way as she doesn’t let me brush. I’m unsure if electric would be better.

But yeah this tooth at bottom front, I thought it was chipped at first and it just worries me why its this

Sorry, that's not right. Looks like it's either fractured or decayed.
Can you brush before her last bottle instead of after?
What is she drinking?

thanks gordon, I have always thought that it seemed that way there was something and for dentist to say normal.

What would be the treatment for this? In baby, is there anything I can do. I’m unsure how it will affect future tooth//teeth coming
And how long do these teeth last .(
 
Maybe later on it might be possible to clean it out and put a little composite filling on it. Baby's a bit too young to sit for it just now. For now, I'd rub fluoride toothpaste into it every night at bedtime, just a tiny smear rubbed in with a fingertip, if you can persuade your dentist to apply some Duraphat fluoride varnish to it that'd be great. Ideally you just want to remineralise the decay/defective dentine and stop it progressing.

Won't affect succeeding teeth at all. For girls they usually fall out about 5-6, boys a little bit later.

Thanks Gordon, wishing I hadn’t just listened to that dentist as had doubts.

Would her normal baby teeth toothpaste work the job? A dentist near to us has just employed new dentist but taking anyone until January. Hope to god can get her registered with that one. Though think they said at this stage too nothing they could do.

With what I’m doing is that fine to just let her chew the toothbrush since she doesn’t really let me at them or would an electric be better?

hoping that when this falls out 5-6 it will be all fine and not cause her any issue up to that :( so far she shows no pain but just with how it looks! Thanks so much

Yes, that would do it fine.

Yes. No :) Every now and then see if she'll let you take over the brush to do a more thorough job, but don't have a big fight over it.
