Monitoring the effects of baby bottle tooth decay is a great method to combat its effects, but often you’ll need professional help to deal with the disease. Use this advice to help your child prior to and following their baby bottle tooth decay appointment.

To prep for your checkup with our office, please help your child know that visiting the dentist can be a fun experience. Let them know that the dentist is going to check their teeth and do what it takes to help them feel better. Talk with your child about what acceptable behavior at the dentist’s office appears, and treat them accordingly when they act suitably.

To assist your child as they heal after successful treatment of baby bottle tooth decay, focus on improving their diet. An awesome diet can be the best medicine, and diets featuring healthy amounts of foods that strengthen chompers 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.
