Milk, formula, fruit juices, and other kinds of sweet drinks, can cause what’s referred to as baby bottle tooth decay. Baby bottle tooth decay is a relatively common condition that occurs when a child is exposed to sugary liquids. The condition may also come about as a result of breastfeeding, in which case it is known as nursing decay. As a leading provider, we offer specialized baby bottle syndrome treatment at Modern Dental Group.
If you believe that your child may be suffering from baby bottle tooth decay, please do not hesitate to contact our office to visit our dental specialist for children today.
Are You Ready to Transform Your Child’s Smile?
How Does Baby Bottle Tooth Decay Occur?
When a child drinks sugary liquids, these liquids can pool around the front teeth. The sugars then feed bacteria, which can lead to plaque. This decay can present itself in a distinctive pattern as acid attacks the front teeth closest to where feeding occurs.
In addition to the drinks already mentioned, pacifiers that are dipped in honey, syrup, or any other sweet substance can lead to baby bottle tooth decay syndrome. At Modern Dental Group the last thing we would ever do is blame parents for this unfortunate, and very common, occurrence. Frequently, first-time parents may be unaware of the effects of excessive exposure to milk. Thankfully, modern baby bottle tooth decay treatments with our specialist and our staff can help restore the health of your child’s teeth so you and your family can put baby bottle tooth decay syndrome behind you. We will also, of course, help you identify the specific cause or causes of your child’s dental decay and help you alter feeding practices or take other necessary measures.

Baby bottle tooth decay treatment options have progressed dramatically. At our office children no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of steel crowns. Instead, with the placement of white dental crowns or porcelain dental crowns, your child can enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking smile. After addressing the decay, the pedodontist places crowns over the affected teeth to virtually erase any sign of your child’s dental issue.
