Toddlers teeth gone brown
Good day Doc

My daughter is 2 and a half years old and her top, front teeth have all decayed. They have changed colour to brown, seem to be growing back iside and very painful and hard to chew with.
I was told to book her in to a Dentist and have them operated on/taken out.
Is this the only way out or is there another way.
I believe it is caused by her feeding bottle because she still feeds on it.

extracting the teeth is in these cases the only option.
