My daughter is 4 years old. She has cavities in between front teeth although she brushes 2 times daily with colgate vedshakti and also has no chocolates or sweets. Only thing is she is fond of marie biscuits (no cream biscuits at all). Does she need any vitamin and calcium supplements as she is choosy in eating habits?

hello, eating habits do play a role in your tooth condition. usually the type of cavity you are telling are referred as early childhood caries which occur if kids have a habit of sleeping with milk bottle in night that means the tooth is exposed to that sugar for full night. try avoiding it. no supplements required. and Get the cavities filled as these teeth needs to be maintained for 3 more years. Thanks
