When you come into Gentle Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, Dr. Sage White will take care of making sure your dental health is on the right track. Each checkup we pencil in includes a baby bottle tooth decay appointment, so you can rest assured knowing that your child’s pearly whites are in the best shape they can be.
To diagnose whether your child has baby bottle tooth decay, Dr. Sage White will administer the standard checkup procedures for children during your child’s next visit. If they notice any spotting on the chompers, excessively tender or red gums or additional signs of tooth erosion, they will talk to you about baby bottle tooth decay and the treatment alternatives that you should deliberate on for addressing the disorder’s impact.
Like tooth erosion in adults, tooth breakdown in children has many negative effects. By chomping away at the outer layers of the pearly whites, acids fashion cavities and heighten the sensitivity of chompers to heat. Superfluous oral acids can also cause infection and inflammation of the gums that leads to periodontal disease and eventual bone destruction and tooth loss.
