Question:
I have a 2 and 1/2 year old boy. One of his 2nd upper incisors is has the tip broken off(about 50% of the tooth). It is black at the break. Now I see what looks like a good sized hole in the center of one of his upper molars. I took him to the dentist when he was two and they said to bring him back when he is three. Do these two problems need to be looked at sooner. And is there something that can be done to help with the overall health of his teeth, such as flouride supplemants?

Answer:
Dear JD,
Fluoridation as treatment for cavity prevention is a standard element in the US. We in our office in Washington DC offer it to our patients. It is also available here in our Moscow office. I can't stress enough the importancy of early dental visits for kids. If you would like your child to be more at ease with dentists in general it would be a good idea to bring him in the dental office just for a rutine check-up and fluoridation which will introduce him to a stress free invironment and help for a future visits. In regards to a particular tooth I will have to be honest it has to be examened first before we can tell you what can be done to resolve the problem. Please feel free cto contact me at 730-4334 and I will try to do mu best to help your child with whatever is in question. I mysef have 3 a nd 6 years old children and I know how it can be rustrating to watch your kid suffer from dental problems.
Sincerely,
Dr. Soyfer
