Hi I am hoping someone else has this problem. My son has what I think to be fluorosis, but that is my self diagnosis from information I gathered from the internet. I am a CDN living in Switzerland and all the Dentists here say that they have never seen this and don't know what it is!? I am puzzled and worried about my precious son's future with this condition. His pearly whites are turning brown and the natural first question people ask is "are they rotting, do you feed him too much sugar, don't you brush"? ahhhhh We are very strict with what we eat, I have made all his baby food (with the exception of a few times) he has only eaten cake on his first birthday and he has never been putto bed sucking a bottle all night...

Is there anyone out there who also has a child with this condition, can you shed some light? I am worried that he will be like this his entire toddler years, is there nothing I can do to prevent it from getting worse?

Thanks for your help, nearly in tears!
