    yellow teeth
    cherylpurple posted:
    Are there any specific reasons that my sons teeth have turned dramatically yellow in less than 4 months? He is under quite a bit of stress. He doesn't smoke or do drugs. His allergist seems to think he is dairy/lactose intolerant, can the lack of calcium be causing this? He does not drink coffee either. Please help.

    I think the most common cause for yellow teeth in child can be bad brushing and flossing habbit. However there might be another cause too like lack of Antibiotics or iron supplements. Rarely, serious conditions like heart disease or hepatitis will also cause a yellowing of the teeth. I think you should consult your dentist to ensure there are no serious or chronic underlying conditions
