Baby Bottle Tooth Decay: Detecting the Signs

If your child is a victim of baby bottle tooth decay, it’s important to call our office and schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. [doctor_name], as soon as possible. The quicker you bring your child into our office, the better chance we have of restoring the smile with less invasive and less extensive treatments.

To find out if your child is a victim of this problem, you can look for the signs associated with it. Those signs are:

-White spots on teeth (This is a sign of the early stages)

-Brown or black spots on the teeth

-Bleeding gums or swollen gums

-Fever, swelling or irritability (This could indicate infection)

-Bad breath

If your child does experience these symptoms, our dental team can help you schedule an appointment. Fortunately, there are many treatments available, like fluoride treatment, dental crowns and tooth extraction. Extraction is necessary when the tooth is infected or has been completely damaged beyond repair. Your child will likely use dental sedation to remain calm and comfortable during their appointment.
