Tooth Update

I took Anna to a pediatric dentist last Thursday. They cleaned her teeth and I was told I am supposed to be flossing her teeth every night and THEN the parent should brush her teeth. Oops. He said the cavity started between her teeth because we weren't flossing.

Then he said that he would actually put a silver crown/cap over that tooth instead of a filling because fillings can break in kids' teeth since their mouths are still changing. And they do not use gas.

So I have two completely different opinions from two different dentists. This dentist is going to be out of town for awhile so our appointment to have this fixed isn't until November. I might try to get one more opinion just to see.
