While changing diet to avoid dangerous foods is an awesome idea, there are a few additional ideas that can help your child prevent the development of early childhood caries. This will lead to less dental problems in the future. If juice is something your child enjoys, deliberate on watering it down. If your child likes cake or a baked treat, don’t frost it as much. Choose non-gummy, non-tough candies instead of gummies and hard candies. Do what you can to lessen the overall sugar ingestion of your child and they’ll have a much better chance of evading tooth breakdown.

While there aren’t separate classifications of baby bottle tooth decay, the bulk of the ailment can vary. If the child has had far too many bottles with sugary substances, like soda or juice, their condition could perhaps be worse than a child who developed a slight decay after sucking on a sugar-dipped pacifier a few times. Impacts range from slight infection and early cavities to complete tooth loss and gum disease.
