There are a number of issues that can present themselves as the tooth enamel develops. Primary (baby) teeth are softer than your own, and even that second set of permanent teeth won’t fully harden for a couple years after they show up. The occurrence of enamel hypoplasia or hypomineralization is not unusual during these stages — and each condition requires special care. If you are worried your child is experiencing abnormal enamel development, learn what that means and how we treat it at Family Dental Practice of Bloomfield. We’re the “dentist near me,” (well, you) working on the case!
