I do hope my English will be understood!!
First i’ll answer the dad or mum who came with th child that it is not caries,then I’ll explain that it is a brown sediment due to melanogen bacteria that people may have normally inside the mouth.
Most of the time the kids who have this problem are « milk drinkers or in France milk eaters »: at least half a liter of milk a day or two or three yogourts a day.
Most of the time I try to postpone the « cleaning » whith air-pressured powder because it’s hard for a small kid ;when the kid goes to school
and the schoolmates say to her or him that the smile is bad we must act.
Never forgett the sediment will come back slowly, we may have to do another »cleaning in about two years!!
Thanks to you if you read me till the end.


No problem. It’s the way to see the kid and clean the teeth!
Is not it?

Hello I agree with a1dufpo1947. That kind of bacteria (Bacteroides melaninogenicus) go away with the changes of saliva when the chid reaches 10 year old.
Milk is not as a good drink as we think, specially for teeth. Breastfeeding or bottlefeeding with only milk couldn’t last after 6 months old (WHO recommendation) because there is lactose in milk.
Milk is good in a cup at breakfast starting 1 year old. There are many ways to get calcium instead of milk.


Oui le lait a malheureusement des inconvénients !
Il n’en reste pas moins que les protéines essentielles de la vie sont dans le lait. Par le sport je suis devenu un grand buveur de lait et un amateur du lait frais de brebis et dérivés !
Par ailleurs le lait est reconnu en certaines sociétés comme une boisson divine.
A chacun son point de vue. Merci
