Teeth problem of my son.
There are problems in my son's teeth. A doctor says, its because of bottle feeding. In my family, there are 4 kids of age group between 5-8 yrs but no teeth problems in any of those kids. Also my wife boils bottle and nipple regularly. That's why I am getting puzzled. Please guide me.

If the "problem" is of cavity it might be due to bottle , actually such cavities are usually confined to the front teeth only and termed as "Nursing Bottle Caries". No need to worry treatment is easy and convenient for a child. You may visit our clinic page for details on Dental Health Thanks https://plus.google.com/103975386117536236648
