My baby is one year old. She has soft teeth in the front and she is not able to bite anything with the upper teeth. If she bites, the teeth start chipping. What am I to do?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
If the enamel matrix formation is deficient, it will result in soft teeth that chips and/or decays easily. It may also result in an atypical or abnormal tooth shape. This is called enamel hypoplasia.
Treatment for this dental condition includes removal of the very soft enamel and placement of a white tooth-colored filling in that area.
Occasionally, the aberration or deviation from normal growth in the enamel is extensive enough that we recommend a white stainless steel cap as a temporary crown during the growing years.
Maintain proper oral hygiene of the child by wiping the teeth with a soft cloth or a very soft brush.
