Okay so Michael got his first two teeth in November and they are fine. But now his top teeth are coming in and two of them are yellowish... I'm not sure if this is something i should be concerned about so i thought i would see what you all think. My step daughter actually has the same issue with one of her front teeth and she went to the dentist and they said its fine and if they wanted too they could do something (dh couldnt remember what) to help the color but it wasnt a big deal and her actual tooth is fine. They said it could happen bec/ her mom could have been sick while she was pregnant or bec/ she could have been sick at some point as a baby or something. So, maybe his are like this bec/ of him being a preemie? He was sick at the end of January (2010) while he was only a couple of weeks old so maybe that caused it? Would you all take him to a dentist or just have the pedi look at it? He has an appointment next month so i could just wait until then but i dont know... it looks bad
I would call a pediatric dentist and see what they say. They may want you to bring him in. I would not bring it up with the doctor because they really don't do teeth. If you're really concerned call a pediatric dentist about it.
Alright well i just looked again and it seems like he actually doesnt have the enamel... i looked this up and i know its pretty common but is there anything that is done for it at this age? It just said to make sure i brush him and keep a "watch" on him bec/ he's more prone to dental issues and that later downt he road things could be done. So does that mean its not a big problem right now?
I never heard anything about TPN causing yellow teeth. My niece has terrible yellow teeth but that is becasue she has too much enamel on her teeth. SO far natties teeth all seem fine. If you are concerned I would call a dentist and see what they say.
