Screening Children for Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Posted .

To prep for your appointment for your young child, please think about the following before your appointment.

During your child’s checkup, Dr. Clifford Morton and the team at Morton Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry will look at your child’s oral cavity for signs of baby bottle tooth decay, such as spotting on the chompers and red, swollen gums. If there are signs of tooth decay, Dr. Clifford Morton will talk with you about alternatives for procedures, and treatment will be performed then or scheduled for a future checkup. As the doctor finishes, they will teach your child about awesome dental hygiene and encourage the practice of healthy oral behaviors.

Avoiding and caring for treating are key for the health of children during adolescence and adulthood. Although multiple people mistakenly think that the health of a child’s pearly whites doesn’t matter because baby pearly whites are impermanent, a child’s dental health condition will greatly impact their oral health as an adult. Prematurely lost baby teeth will cause crowding and cause speech problems, chomping difficulties and low dental quality of life.

The staff at Morton Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry in Marietta, Georgia, is filled with caring professionals trained on baby bottle tooth decay. Why wait a second more?
