My daughter is 6 years old her molar teeth was extracted two days back due to Spoiled teeth. Her dentist says the other side molar teeth also should be removed in next month, though the other side molar teeth is good as of now he says as she has to use only that side for chewing there are chances of decaying that side too. Is it good advice? Is there no any way to protect the other molar teeth? As she can not chew anything till she gets the new one. Please help.(As of now no problem with the other side molar teeth)

Get a crown on other molar. Brush teeth with fluoride pastes.
Please use a fluoride based tooth mousse twice a day on the good teeth. That should help to protect the teeth. Pl search dental ecommerce sites for dental tooth mousse products. Get well soon.
