Baby bottle tooth decay can usually develop on the front teeth. Another term for this dental problem is referred to as early childhood caries and bottle mouth. This occurs when there is too much sugar on the teeth – the kind of sugar that can be found in sugary beverages and snacks including in milk or formula. Baby bottle tooth decay is a serious health issue since the child needs a healthy set of teeth to chew, speak and smile. If tooth loss occurs early or tooth decay is not treated, pain and infection can happen. Poor development of baby teeth may result in speaking and eating problems and your child’s adult teeth could grow in crowded.
Through careful inspection, early childhood caries can be detected. Meanwhile, late baby bottle decay is highly visible because of the blackened stubs of the rotten teeth. With the help of a dental expert, early tooth decay can be treated. In some cases, the extensive dental procedure is required that needs restraint, anaesthesia or sedation. The best way to avoid complicated cases in baby bottle tooth decay is to prevent it from happening. Proper feeding guidelines and necessary oral care routine are one of the most efficient methods so your child can develop healthy teeth today and onwards.
