Dental Insurance Kids – Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Tuesday, Oct. 10th 2023 6:02 AM

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay what it is, and how to Prevent it. 

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay (BBTD) is caused by frequent and prolonged exposure to liquids except for plain water. Beverages include formula, milk, fruit juices, and drinks containing sugars. If these liquids pool around the baby’s teeth and gums for an extended period, they will lead to cavities that first develop in the upper and lower front teeth.

Usually, this happens when you leave a baby with a baby bottle to sleep or to soothe a baby from crying. You should not let your baby fall asleep with a bottle filled with anything other than plain water or use a pacifier. See if your dentist has a pacifier they recommend you use. If you are breastfeeding, try to avoid letting your child nurse continuously. Also, remember to wipe your baby’s teeth and gums with a clean damp washcloth after feedings. BBTD is preventable with proper dental healthcare. Ask your dentist for more dental care tips for your child and ensure they have regular dental checkups.
