Pediatrics/Teeth decay issue for 3 years old

Question
Hello Doctor,
My niece is three years old now. but since more than a year she has tooth decay problem. Just 3 months back, we did filling for 3 tooth by giving anesthesia to child. Now another tooth which is next to where we did filling started getting affected I think, because I can see greyish colour over that teeth. Please tell me,do we need to fill that teeth also? Will the baby keep getting the issue for all her teeth? Pls tell me what we need to do?

Also the same baby has started blinking her eyes continuously for some time. For example, she is normal since morning, but suddenly starts blinking her eyes at noon. Then she'll sleep and again if she gets up, she will be normal. Again in the evenings, she will start blinking. What we have to do for it?

Please advice me doctor.

Answer
Do not give him too many sweets like chocolates, chewing gum etc. Make sure he brushes his teeth twice daily and rinses his mouth after eating. Make sure he gets enough calcium by giving him about 500 ml of milk daily.

No need to worry about blinking of eye lids. I think it will stop after some time.

Expertise

I can answer questions in the field of general pediatrics-questions regarding the development of children, immunization, feeding, weaning and common childhood problems like fever, cough and recurrent illness. Many of these topics are dealt with on my website Healthy Family Happy Family. Often a mother imagines that her child is sick when in fact there is no problem. Such a mother needs explanation and reassurance. I will not be able to answer specific questions regarding diagnosis.
