Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

My 1.5 year old has been diagnosed by his dentist with 'baby bottle tooth decay' the dentist says that his teeth are favoring demineralization but dont have any cavities yet.

He is breastfed and has never had a bottle but I was told that breastmilk can cause this also. I noticed the tooth decay came around the time he started drinking pasturized milk more regularly but I am not positive about the connection. I took away the milk and started giving filtered water with added ionic minerals along with a a fermented cod liver oil/butter oil supplement, and a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil a day. I have been doing this for about 2 months along with brushing his teeth twice a day and have not seen an improvement but it has not gotten worse either.

The decay is mostly on his top front 4 teeth near the gums on his top fron two. On one tooth it is completely covered but more prominent near the gums with all. It is grey colored. On his back teeth there is some light brown/yellow discoloration. It doesnt come off with brushing but it has the appearance of plaque or leftover food that should come off easily- but doesnt.

My son has never had vaccinations or flouride. His personality is very outgoing. He wants to be the center of attention and always needs to be doing something entertaining. He loves being outside and could be outside all day without getting upset. When he is inside or bored he gets upset and yells or does this for attention. He understands the word 'no' but will not listen. He does not take directions well from my husband or I and will insist on doing what he wants when he wants. He is extremely high willed and will not give up untill he gets his way.

We tried Chamomilla 200c in pellets and the wet dose for teething about a year ago but it did not seem to help. When he was 4 months old we gave him kali carb 200c for bronchitus and it worked after 1 dose.

His head gets very hot and sweaty when he sleeps. He does not get sick often but when he gets sick he will get extremely high fevers of 103-105.7

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him three doses of calc carb 200 12 hours apart and see whether it helps in next 15 days.

Not a remedy-help per se, but as information in regards to your sons teeth: what he has in 'attached labial frenulum'- do google it, and check out La Leche League re same. I don't think there is much you can do for the teeth now, but his 2nd teeth will be fine. I would go on a course of calc fluor 6x tissue salts also.

The Calc Carb 200c and Calc Flour 6x did not seem to be worse. It has been a few weeks since taking them and his teeth are progressively getting worse.

Are there any of the homeopathic doctors on this forum that could help with his case? I do appreciate all help but to order individual remedies where we live it is very expensive and i'm very concerned at how his teeth are getting I dont want them to get any worse.

Now his top side teeth are completely brown and his two front teeth still have the decay appearance near the gums.

No reply from parakletos. My sons teeth are getting increasingly worse. I started giving him New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care supplement with calcium from algae and vitamin K2 and it is not helping either. I have also increased his vitamin D intake.

His teeth are looking so bad I dont know what to do!
