I’m guilty of underestimating Iron supplements and their capability to stain the teeth. If I could do it all over again, I would do better prevention or ask for other ways to fill my son’s Iron needs. 

Toddler's teeth stains look like a teeth gap
After a couple of days of taking Iron supplements, our son’s upper teeth stains made it look like he had a teeth gap

When we realized that the culprit of the unsightly stains was his daily helping of Ferlin, we quickly switched to using the dropper to minimize its contact with Tikoy’s teeth and brushed them right after.

Other than the supplement, Tikoy wolfed down Duhat fruits we picked from our tree. It aggravates the stains too.

Sadly, the damage was done, and all we could do was to find a way to lighten his teeth stains if not remove them. Thankfully, we have been using Nu Skin’s AP 24 toothpaste ourselves and found it safe for kids in controlled amounts.

During the worst staining, I used a moist cloth and dabbed (dampi) a bit of the toothpaste on it and then rubbed it on Tikoy’s teeth. We observed that the discoloration on his upper teeth lightened in a matter of weeks. Not to mention, it was noticeably shinier, which would have been a lovely sight, save for the stains still ingrained in them.

The stains on the upper teeth are gone after 2 months. It’s a little harder to remove the ones at the bottom.

We had to endure the staining for the whole three months that our son had to take his iron supplement. His lower teeth still have stains, but they are noticeably lighter thanks to AP 24 toothpaste. We’re hopeful that they will be gone soon.
