Hi, don't know if this is the right place to post this but I thought with it been about inhalers.
My son Ethan is 11 has asthma and has to take ventolin and symbicort,
I have 4 son's they all have asthma my other 3 son's only use ventolin they don't need preventer but ethan asthma is worse.
Recently his teeth have been getting really bad since getting his second 2nd set.
They come back and lots of them didn't come back straight at all some are crossing each other and alot of them are rotting a little bit and he has been given a retainer to use untill he can get his braces we were told it could take a while for him to get them and he has had to also have a few teeth removed.
My other 3 son's have really nice white straight teeth with no problems and none removed but they have always taken there inhalers through a spacer.
But ethan has used symbicort and ventolin since been diagnosed at the age of 10.
I know his teeth not been straight probably had nothing to do with this because they have been like it before he was diagnosed with asthma but they started rotting and needing to be removed since he had had asthma
They all go to the dentist regularly for there teeth to be checked they have been going since they have all had teeth they also brush them twice a day. I feel bad that they have got like that for him.
The dentist said that his inhaler could of done this so I took him to the doctor and the doctor wasn't sure why they have gone like it I asked if he could change the inhaler to somethings like fostair or seretide he can use then through a spacer but the doctor said if symbicort is helping then it doesn't need to be changed and others won't help.
Could it be the symbicort inhaler doing this as it may be going onto his teeth and not all into his lungs or could it be something else.
Has anyone had this problem with their kids.
