Baby Bottle Tooth Decay 101

Posted .

What are you aware of about treating baby bottle tooth decay? Review this post to find out more about the condition and what it means for you.

In the early phases of baby bottle tooth decay, fluoride processing is typically sufficient to reverse the condition. As the condition elevates, restorative services like crowns and fillings may be required. In dire cases, extraction of pearly whites can become necessary. Depending on the age of your child, Dr. David Solomon might recommend sedation dentistry practices and services to ease the effect of other services.

There are multiple signs of baby bottle tooth decay. First of all, be careful if you’ve given your child soda, candy or other sugary materials. Secondly, you may have cause for concern if you do not brush your child’s pearly whites or support them to brush their chompers. Physical signs you can look for include white, brown or black patches on the pearly whites, bouts of stinky breath, red and swollen gums and any signs of infection.
