Nursing Bottle Caries

Prevention is better than cure

Nursing bottle caries is the primary type of tooth decay observed in infants. Bottle feeding, especially nocturnal feeding or when child are allowed to sleep with bottle in their mouth, leads to nursing bottle caries. During sleep there is reduction in salivary flow causing milk stagnation in the mouth leading to tooth decay/cavities. These cavities will appear as white spots on the tooth especially seen in upper teeth. Over a period of time, these cavities will be formed which appears as yellow, brown & black stains. This is an alarming sign because the disease is widespread, among young children and if untreated can lead to early loss of teeth due to decay. Proper oral hygiene, feeding pattern & dietary practices to be followed by the caretaker to avoid nursing bottle caries.

In Denty’s, we advise the parent to have the first dental visit for the child ideally after the child’s first birthday. During the first visit, caries risk assessment is done for the child to prevent dental decay. If any white spots are found parents are educated how to clean their child’s teeth with fluoride toothpaste, fluoride varnish is applied by the dentist to avoid cavity formation.
