Sorry for the long post title. :)
Since writing about the New York Times article on ECC (Early Childhood Caries) the other day, I’ve gotten a large volume of hits from people looking for help with their own dental woes. I wanted to make sure everything I’ve written is easily accesible, so I decided to post a little update with a comprehensive post list.
Cora Ruth got her first teeth at 4 months old and started showing signs of decay in her top four teeth before her first birthday. I have had problems with my teeth my whole life, and our son Aidan has “weak enamel.” Below you’ll find a list of everything I’ve written on the subject of dental health.
Scroll down below the list to see progressive photos of Cora’s decay and treatment, culminating with a photo of her teeth taken yesterday – 3 days shy of her second birthday. I hope you find some things to guide your own research.
