my daughter went to the dentist today. she has 8 cavities. They want to put silver caps on her 4 front teeth. her teeth look good no rotting and she isnt complaining. she is 4 yrs. old. Does she really need to get caps or can she get filings?
It’s a shame that your daughter has so many cavities at such a young age. There may be options to the metal caps but there must be something significantly wrong with the teeth for the dentist to recommend them. The sensible option would be to discuss all the options with the dentist prior to the treatment being carried out. It is also essential that your daughter’s diet is analysed to see what is causing the decay and prevention advice is given.
