    hollow teeth
    An_224433 posted:
    my ex told me that my son probably has hollow teeth<< a trait apparently inherited. I can't find anything online about hollow teeth. I believe my son's teeth can be fixed by a dentist and flossing and brushing. According to my ex... brushing doesn't help the conditions of hollow teeth and my son will ultimately lose all his teeth when he's older. My question is:: Is there really a condition called hollow teeth? and if so; what can be done so my son doesn't end up toothless like my ex's family?

    Dear Anon_65607:
    Sometimes professionals try and explain a condition by using layman's terms. I have never heard of hollow teeth and cannot possibly comment on this.
    Here is what you should do...
    Go see a dentist, if you child is young, a Pediatric Dentist is better. Have a proper, professional consultation and don't live life based on someone's story. If your child does have a certain hereditary condition, I would love to know the professional diagnosis. Hollow teeth might be a regional term that is used in some parts of the country. I'd love to know what it refers to.
    Best of luck,
    Dr. Zev Kaufman
