Baby Bottle Dangers

Kid Care Dental has mentioned on our site one harm that can be caused by bottles: tooth decay. Babies who go to bed with a bottle of milk, formula or juice are more likely to get tooth decay due to the sugar in formula, milk or juice that stays in contact with the teeth for a long time during the night.

However, as seen in the article above, there is an even more basic harm from bottles: the bottle itself and how easy it can be for a child to knock one into their mouth and break or damage teeth. This hazard can be seen with toys and pacifiers as well, so it is important that parents are aware of these dangers and keep their children and their mouths not only clean, but safe!

Kid Care Dental has always cared about children and their oral health, and we happily provide tips and suggestions to all parents and kids through our website as well as during in-office appointments. Visit us in Stoughton, MA today and keep your children on the path toward clean and healthy teeth.
