                                Ways To Prevent Early Decay

  • Put only water in a bedtime or naptime bottle
  • Never use a nursing bottle filled with sweet liquid ( including milk or fruit juice) as a pacifier
  • Never dip your infant's pacifier in honey, syrup or sugar
  • After each feeding, wipe your infant's gums and teeth with a clean, damp washcloth or gauze pad
  • As soon as the first tooth appears, brush your child's teeth daily with a child size toothbrush
  • Make sure your child gets the fluoride needed for decay resistant teeth
  • Start regular dental visits when your child is between 1 and 2 years of age
