Baby bottle tooth decay is a common condition among infants and it’s usually caused by prolonged exposure to sugar. Tooth decay can be very uncomfortable and detrimental to your child’s health — but there are several ways of preventing it. Here are some of them.
- Avoid giving your child sugary drinks or foods such as juice or honey.
- Separate your child’s utensils from the rest of the family’s.
- Wipe your child’s mouth after every feeding with a damp washcloth or gauze.
Visit your dentist as soon as your child’s first teeth begin to emerge.
