My granddaughter's teeth has turned green/black. She has been going to her dentist for check ups. 6 months ago, her teeth was fine and no problems. Now 6 months later, her front 4 teeth have turned green/black. She only eats soft food and eats on her right side. The rest of her mouth hurt. What could cause this?

  • You  have not written the age of child but it looks like a case of ECC i.e. early childhood caries. It starts with upper front teeth and then involves the other teeth. Causes are poor oral hygiene or it can be taking bottle if she is small and is fed with bottle and if it so then it is called nursing bottle caries. You have to take her to child dental specialist i.e. pedodontist who will try to restore the teeth. As these caries progress very fast you have to be very careful about the oral hygiene . So schedule a visit to pedodontist asap. for more info on children dentistry you can check this link in our website for more info.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-children-dentistry-33.aspx
