Early Infant Oral Care

Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Dental Association, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry all recommences establishing a dental home for your child by their first birthday? Children who have a dental home are more likely to receive appropriate preventative and routine oral health care.

You can make their first visit as enjoyable as possible, and we are here to help! If old enough, your child should be informed of the visit and told that the dentist and their staff will explain all procedures and answer any questions. The less to-do concerning the visit, the better.

Early Childhood Cavities

One serious form of tooth decay among young children is baby bottle tooth decay. This condition is caused by frequent and long exposures of an infant’s teeth to liquids that contain sugar. Among these liquids are milk (including breast milk), formula, fruit juice, and other sweetened drinks. Putting a baby down for a nap, or to bed at night with a bottle containing liquids other than water can cause serious and rapid tooth decay. Sweet liquid pools around the child’s teeth giving plaque bacteria an opportunity to produce acids that attack tooth enamel. If you must give the baby a bottle as a comforter at bedtime, it should contain only water. If your child won’t fall asleep without the bottle and its usual beverage, gradually dilute the bottle’s contents with water over a period of two to three weeks.
Sippy Cups

If your child uses a sippy cup throughout the day, fill the sippy cup with water only, except at mealtimes, when you can offer other sugar free beverages in moderation.
