I was hoping someone could tell me what could be causing my son's enamel to come off on two of his teeth.
He is 18months old, and the two teeth affected are his first two teeth he got when he was 4 months old. He has never been put to bed with a bottle or cup, doesn't eat candy or junk food. I brush them at least once a day, more if he will let me. He does get a small cup of 100% juice with his breakfast, but other than that he still nurses frequently.

It doesn't seem to be bothering him, but it looks like another peice is about to come off. I have to call and set up our dental insurance with tri-care and then I will be making an appointment. I just wanted some advice in the meantime.

and I have

I feel terrible. "/ His old ped told me not to worry about it at his 15 month check up in february, but to me it seems like something I should be worried about. I was going to wait until the 20th of this month for his 18 month well baby visit, but like I said there is another loose peice. It honestly looks like it just can't stick. All his other teeth are fine though.

Thanks for any help/advice you can offer.
