Healthy Mouth, Healthy Kids




My three year old son has three rotting teeth, an incisor,canine and molar, the dentists suggested that they be removed. This has to be done under genral aneasthetic. At the moment he is in no pain. Are there anyother options for this case


There is no way to assess other options for your son's treatment without examining him and looking at his x-rays. It is always a good idea to get a second or even third opinion when you have concerns. Be certain to have your son examined by a pediatric dentist.
