Why Diagnosing Baby Bottle Tooth Decay is Crucial

When you come into Advanced Dental, Drs. Kevin Torbenson, & Drew Neumann will take care of ensuring that your dental health is on the right track. Each visit we set up includes a baby bottle tooth decay appointment, so you can rest assured knowing that your child’s chompers are in the best shape possible.

To diagnose whether your child has baby bottle tooth decay, your dentist will administer the standard checkup services for children during your child’s next visit. If they notice any spotting on the chompers, excessively tender or red gums or other signs of tooth breakdown, they will speak with you about baby bottle tooth decay and the processing alternatives that you should consider for addressing the sickness’s impact.

Like oral decay in adults, tooth decay in children has many negative effects. By eating away at the protective layers of the teeth, bacterial acids make cavities and heighten the sensitivity of pearly whites to heat. Excess oral bacterial acids can also cause infection and inflammation of the gums that leads to gum disease and eventual bone loss and tooth loss.
