Preventing cavities in children

You have the power to prevent cavities

Children are not born with the bacteria that cause cavities  – they get cavity causing bacteria from adults.  You can help prevent tooth decay and other painful, expensive dental diseases from harming your child.

Don’t share spoons, forks or cups

Put only formula, milk or water in a baby bottle – no juice or sweet drinks

Don’t dip pacifiers in honey or sugar

Don’t clean a pacifier with  your mouth

Your child should see a dentist by age 1
