For parents, being aware of the risks our children face and avoiding them is job number one. And this is true of dental risks as well.
However, oral care usually isn’t considered much of an issue until children get older, have a mouth full of teeth, and are on to solid food. But there are risks long before teeth emerge that parents should be aware of.
One of the major dental issues for infants is baby bottle tooth decay. This condition is a threat even when children are only consuming formula or milk and don’t have many teeth in at all. At Prevent Dental Suite, we want all new parents to be aware of this potential problem, its symptoms, and how to treat it.
