Causes of nursing bottle caries
Working parents mostly relay on nursing bottles to calm the baby after long tiring work. As long as the nipple stays inside the mouth , these liquids pools all around the teeth.
Besides this, many pacifies baby’s with pacifiers dipped in sweeteners like honey, milk formulas, fruit pulps and other sugar solutions and this again adds up to caries initiation.
Lack of routine oral hygiene.
Insufficient fluoride exposure.
But They’re Just Baby Teeth, Aren’t They? Also, they are just going to fall out someday , so why should I spend time on them?
