Dental Hygiene

12 yr old with root problems



My daughter is 12. She recently went to the dentist and after some X rays they told her she had some roots that were deteriorating. The dentist said this was rare for children and she didn`t have a name for it, but was going to research it. Have you heard of this? Is this common? anything you can give me I would appriciate. Thank You.
