Preventing Early Childhood (Baby Bottle) Tooth Decay

Tooth decay in infants can be minimized and largely prevented by not allowing sleeping infants to breast or bottle-feed. Infants who need a bottle to comfortably fall asleep should be given a water-filled bottle or a pacifier. Our practice is dedicated to fighting early childhood (baby bottle) tooth decay. Call us if you notice any signs of decay (chalky white or brownish spots) or anything unusual in your child’s mouth.
