Putting your baby to bed with a bottle may help get your little one to sleep, but it could be causing more harm to their health.
Dentists say that kids who sleep with a bottle are more prone to develop tooth decay as they get older. The milk or juice feeds bacteria, which leads to tooth decay. It you must use a bottle at bedtime, dentists suggest using water instead.
Even children as young as three can get their first cavity. Be sure and schedule a check up with your family dentist to spot tooth decay before it spreads. Teach your children the importance of good oral health, a window to your overall health.
Healthy smiles will not only make picture perfect moments, but give your kids confidence to flash their pearly whites!
