DID YOU KNOW…TOOTH DECAY IN CHILDREN #MOUTHMONSTERSMOVEMENT

April 22, 2017

Many parents are surprised to learn that tooth decay can begin as early as
age 1.

 

Tooth decay occurs in toddlers when bacteria within the mouth begin to eat away at the primary teeth. Tooth decay is also known as a cavity or dental caries. Inadequate dental care and not brushing your child's teeth enough can be causes of decay. Unhealthy eating habits contribute to tooth decay.

 

A common cause of toddler tooth decay is going to bed with a bottle. This particular condition is known as baby bottle tooth decay. The milk or juice from the bottle can sit in your tot's mouth all night and create an ideal breeding ground for bacteria.

 

Here are some tips on how to take care of your child's mouth, from birth to school age.

 

To keep track of your child's toot brushing we can provide you with a tooth brushing chart, thanks for the Mouth Monster Movement.
