Tooth decay

I am new to the site and I am curious if any moms have experience with tooth decay. Our five year old has horrible decay to the point where she practically has no bottom front teeth and her others are discolored. She does see a dentist regularly and he hasn't done a whole lot since it doesn't bother her. However she told me the other day she wants pretty teeth (broke my heart) and I feel at a loss for her and what to do. She has DiGeorge Syndrome so the decay is just something that is a side effect as a result of a submucosal cleft. I have an appointment with a different dentist who specializes in children in her situation so hopefully she can help a little but I don't know what else I can try to do for her. She doesn't drink a lot of juice and candy and brushes a minimum of 3x a day.

    Her current dentist can't give me an answer regarding her permanent teeth. That is one thing I don't think we will know until they come in. I pray they all come in healthy and white!!

      Cory my youngest son had a lot of decayed teeth when he was two years old from falling asleep with a milk bottle. Some of his teeth were capped and others were pulled out all in the front and top 5 teeth total. I still have guilt from this and pray his permanent teeth will be perfect like his brothers. By the way welcome, I look forward to sharing more experience with you!

        Linda she hasn't had any permenant teeth come in yet. They are all there according to X-rays. I would LOVE it if they gave her a whole new set of teeth, but I am not getting my hopes up on that one.
