Watching for the side effects of baby bottle tooth decay is an awesome way to battle its effects, but occasionally you’ll need professional help. Use this advice to help your child prior to and following their baby bottle tooth decay appointment.

To prepare for your appointment with our office, please help your child know that going to the dentist can be an enjoyable experience. Let them know that the dentist is going to check their teeth and do what it takes to help them feel stronger. Talk with your child about what acceptable behavior at the dentist’s office appears, and treat them accordingly when they act politely.

To help your child as they recover after successful treatment of baby bottle tooth decay, focus on enhancing their diet. A great diet can be the greatest medicine, and diets featuring healthy amounts of foods that fortify pearly whites are the best diets. Foods that strengthen teeth include foods high in vitamins A, D, and K, foods high in calcium and foods high in phosphorous. For best results, avoid sugary foods and drinks.

When was your last appointment in our Chico, California, office? To keep your pearly whites healthy and robust, we need to see you at least once each six months. Give Dr. Suk Young Ahn and the Sukyoung Ahn DDS team a call now at 530-342-0104 to schedule your next checkup to our office.
