Baby Bottle Tooth Decay


 
Baby bottle tooth decay is a condition targeting the mouth, teeth, and gums of children below the age of 6. When a child has Baby bottle tooth decay, their oral cavity is affected by cavities and could also have potential tooth loss. If you’re meticulous with your child’s oral care at home and you bring them into our office for dental cleanings often, you can keep your child free from Baby bottle tooth decay.

If your child sucks on a pacifier, do not dip the pacifier into honey or sugar before giving it to them: their oral cavity, like yours, is at risk for superfluous amounts of sugar consumption, and they may form cavities if they’re given too much sugar all at once.

Do not lick or share spoons (or pacifiers) with your little ones. The bacteria in your oral cavity can be dangerous for their teeth and gums.

When you give your child a bottle, do not fill it with any foods besides milk, breastmilk or formula. Sugary drinks like soda and juice might be able to soothe a child for a moment, but the tooth breakdown that normally ensues will leave them fidgety for a long time.

Although baby teeth are tiny, they are very important to your child’s dental wellbeing, both now and in the future. Ensure that you bring your child to the dentist by their first birthday or half a year after their first tooth erupts
