Re: Born With Cavities
It shouldn't matter whether or not the dentist is running late. If it was my dentist that brushed me off and out the door when I had questions, well, I'd be looking for a new dentist!
First, how old is the grandson that has this "born with cavity"?
Second, what tooth is it in? His 6-year molar by any chance?
If it is his 6 year molar then it could be a condition where a person has "soft" enamel. This condition occurs while the person is a fetus. It is called amelogenisis imperfecta.
So the doctor may have termed it "born with" because it may have happened when your grandson was growing in utero.
