Go NOW !: I am not sure about the reference to "worms". But if she has visible plaque on her teeth and is 10 years old and has not yet seen a dentist then it is imperative that she be examined as soon as possible.

Worms?: If my child had worms in her teeth i would force her to go to the dentist. Plaque on the other hand is easy to remove with a tooth brush. You should ask her to brush her teeth for starters. If you have trouble with that you may need seek other means to encourage her to do so. If she gets a severe enough toothache she will be begging you to take her to the dentist.

Take her to dentist: You do not need to give your 10 yr old a choice in this matter. She needs to visit a dentist and as her parent it is your responsibility to get her there. What you describe can become much worse if untreated, so best to make an appointment soon.

EXACTLY THIS:: You are her mother and responsible for her health and well being. That includes proper dental care. Find a pedodontist in your area, preferably one recommended by friends, neighbors, co-workers or other health care professionals. Discuss the problem with that pedodontist first and together work out a way to get her dental treatment. No excuses please!
