15mnth old teeth have chipped on bottom, normal? Does it mean they are soft/weak.

Hi I feel a bit daft asking this but my 15mnth old dd's two front teeth have in the last week or so gone jaggedy/chipped along bottom, where once they were smooth. Her teeth look ok but do you think this means they are weak. She still puts everything in her mouth for a chew no matter how hard (does this ever stop?) I think something must have damaged them. Do dentists see babies? Or is this quite normal? Thanks for any help/info.

You should take your child to a dentist as soon as they get their teeth so yes, they will see her.

DS1 has jagged teeth - his adult two teeth - and the dentist said it was normal but I don't know that it is at this young age so I would take her for a check up.

thanks for your reply I've booked her into a dentist.
