Needs Examination: She may have sustained damage to her primary teeth by the nocturnal bottle (baby bottle syndrome). In addition, she may have a genetic malformation of the enamel. Either way, she should be examined by a local pediatric dentist.

Pedodontist: Your daughter is at least a year overdue for her 1st dental examination. She may have Amelogenesis Imperfecta our Dentogenesis Imperfecta. She needs to be immediately seen by a children's Dental specialist, a Pedodontist. NEVER put a child to bed with a bottle containing anything but water. Acids in milk and juice can harm teeth. And yes, she may be in extreme pain. Please see Pedodontist now.
