I just wanted to update you on the dental situation. I took Olivia in yesterday. She said the spot is fairly small and that it's an area of decalcification <spelling?>, probably as a result of the oi.
Said to keep doing what we are doing - multi-vitamin with fluoride everyday, brushing twice and regular exams.
Her teeth are coming in in a really strange order and I didn't really get a clear answer from the dentist as to why that might be. She's got four on the bottom, only three on the top and then she just got a molar in the back.
Strange... my son got all of his teeth (four top, four bottom, then the canines) before getting his molars in.
The dentist mentioned something about how, because of her condition, she may end up missing teeth but I presume she was getting confused about OI/DI. I'll be going to a pediatric dentist for her next exam (in 6 mos)... had to see a general dentist first and get a referral in order for our insurance to cover the pediatric dentist. I hope he's a bit more knowledgeable about OI.
Anyway, all seems fine for now. No one in DH's family (with oi) has any dental problems other than some slight discoloration - that opalescent thing you were talking about, so I'm not too worried.
