18 month old baby has teeth discoloration!

Hi! my son is 18 months old. I am still breastfeeding him. His food includes apple, banana, green gram, cereals, and vegetables. But I didn't add any salt and sugar in his food. He has four upper teeth and two lower teeth. I give him Vitamin D and multivitamin supplements as per the doctor's prescription. He refuses to let me brush his teeth. Recently, I have noticed that his teeth have turned yellow in color. When I discussed this with my husband, he told that it looks like enamel loss. He also suggested taking him to a dental clinic in Kitchener. We are planning to take him there. This will be his first dental visit ( https://www.smiletown.ca/parents-info/first-visit/ ). What will be the exact reason for his tooth discoloration? Can this problem be solved? What is the treatment for teeth discoloration in children? At what age should a child have his first dental visit? Please share your insights. Thank you!

    The problem is pretty clear. He don't let you brush his teeth that is the reason. I think you must do it forcefully. I know it's difficult to do it with a kid. Well anyway now what could you do. You have t take him to the dentist. I think he is going to do scaling as I guess. I am not sure whether they have something else for children. Let's hope for the best. Now the situation has occur. You must face it now. Don't worry it's going to be fine. Scaling is not something really bad. It's just a way to brush the teeth after a year or two. They are going to be clean. I wish you teach him to brush his teeth regularly twice a day after this is done. If you have to do it forcefully than do it. After all it's good for him at the end.

    Baby teeth, also called primary teeth, are typically whiter than adult permanent teeth. Because they are more calcified. Baby teeth can become discolored for many reasons. If the discoloration is caused by poor dental hygiene. More thorough brushing might help. Until your child learns to spit at about age 3. Use a smear of fluoride toothpaste no bigger than the size of a grain of rice. To keep your child's mouth healthy. Avoid filling your child's bottle with liquids such as sugar water, juice or soft drinks. And don't put him or her to bed with a bottle. Also, don't share eating utensils with your child. This can spread cavity-causing bacteria. If your child uses a pacifier. Never dip it in honey or sugar. Discuss your concerns about your child's baby teeth with his or her doctor. He or she might refer you to a pediatric dentist. After addressing any underlying issues. The dentist might recommend bleaching the discolored teeth later on or simply watching the teeth for signs of other problems.
