If baby bottle tooth decay advances for too long without dental treatment, options for recovery become few and far between. While it’s never the first thing we endorse, your child may end up in need of surgery to get rid of their affected chompers if the baby bottle tooth decay has progressed too much. When this is the case, we’ll discuss different options for surgery with you, including the chance of using sedation dentistry to comfort your child during any services.
Think it or not, baby bottle tooth decay (otherwise called early childhood caries or ECC) is the most chronic childhood disorder for children. Impacting 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 percentage has definitely grown since then. Children who do not visit the dentist frequently were more prone to have the condition, and an unheard of 50% of children in the affectable age group never visit the dentist.
