Paying attention to the side effects of baby bottle tooth decay is a great way to battle its effects, but sometimes you’ll need professional help to deal with the disease. Use the below info to help your child prior to and following their baby bottle tooth decay visit to our office.

To prepare for your visit with our office, please help your child recognize that visiting the dentist can be a fun experience. Let them know that the dentist is going to look at their teeth and do what it takes to help them feel stronger. Speak with your child about what acceptable behavior at the dentist’s office looks like, and reward them accordingly when they act suitably.

To support your child as they get better after successful treatment of baby bottle tooth decay, focus on strengthening their diet. An awesome diet can be the best medicine, and diets featuring foods that fortify teeth are the greatest diets. Foods that strengthen teeth include foods high in vitamins A, D and K, foods high in calcium and foods high in phosphorous. For best results, avoid sugary foods and drinks.
