Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Facts and Prevention Tips

Baby-Bottle-Tooth-Decay-Facts-and-Prevention-Tips-p

Implementing proper oral hygiene shouldn’t start when your teeth are complete and fully-grown. As soon as the first tooth pops up, parents must apply the appropriate oral care routine to their young children.

Baby teeth are very important. They are already susceptible to decay; thus tooth decay prevention should be taken right away.

Baby bottle tooth decay is a leading oral health issue for children under 3 years old. This happens when your child frequently consumes sweetened beverages during their sleep. Sucking the bottle for hours allow the sugar to run over the baby’s upper front teeth, which causes decay that leads to infection.

If your child is exposed to sugary drinks for an extended period of time, your baby’s teeth and mouth will acquire a greater damage. Treatment for severe early childhood caries is highly expensive.

Being responsible for what your child eats or drinks is important. Helping your child prevent baby bottle tooth decay lets them experience a better childhood phase without undergoing the complications of speaking and eating problems as well as crooked and damaged teeth.

Less Sugar Intake, Less Tooth Decay

Less Sugar Intake, Less Tooth DecayEven though people have put in extra attention to dental and oral wellness today, tooth decay continues to rank as one of the most common chronic illnesses.

In a study that was conducted worldwide, it was found that tooth decay has a global prevalence of 35 per cent. Here in Australia, up to 30 per cent of adults have untreated tooth decay.

In order to provide a means to solve this concern, it would be beneficial to address its causes first. One of the major contributors that should be tackled would be sugar consumption. Bacteria in your mouth feed off the sugars from the sweets that you and your children enjoy. As a result, plaque builds up and releases acids that damage the teeth.
