If baby bottle tooth decay evolves for too long without dental procedures, options for recuperation become few and far between. While it’s never the first thing we suggest, your child might end up in need of surgery to extricate their affected teeth if the baby bottle tooth decay has progressed too much. When this is the case, we’ll discuss different alternatives with you, including the probability of using sedation dentistry practices to comfort your child during any procedures.
Think it or not, baby bottle tooth decay (otherwise known as early childhood caries or ECC) is the most chronic childhood ailment for children. Affecting children between 6 months old up to 6 years old, baby bottle tooth decay was found in 28% of the affectable age group in 2004, and that number has definitely grown since then. Children who do not have appointments with the dentist regularly were additionally likely to have the condition, and a whopping 50% of children in the affectable age group never have appointments with the dentist‘s office.
