Yes, it makes sense. I forgot to add that mother did not mention ANY of his illnesses to the dentist. I guess that I am concerned about how fast it happened and shouldn't someone have done something sooner? Head trauma is what caused all this. Every bit of it caused by repeated head trauma over and over again since he was just a few months old. Skull fractures, swollen head, ribs, seizures, etc., etc,. But every single person involved runs from child abuse and wants nothing to do with it, therefore he has not been properly diagnosed ever in my opinion. I am going to talk to his dentist today and I want to ask some legitimate questions like: Isn't it odd that mother was shown areas to watch but skips a checkup and doesn't bring him in until 8 teeth are nearly rotted out? If he was sent to a specialist due to "the amount and large areas of decay", wouldn't the specialist want to find what was causing it? If you would have known about all his illnesses and un-treated sinusitis on ct scan, would it have made a difference? Shouldn't a thorough history and possible genetic cause have been explored? Don't you think this is dental neglect?
Are these questions legit, do you think Dr. Katz? And do you think that the decay is possible to be caused by bacteria spreading to the roots of the teeth or not? Thanks again and I will accept after you reply. Much appreciated.
