Baby bottle tooth decay is caused by the frequent and long-term exposure of a child's teeth to liquids containing sugars. Among these liquids are milk, formula, fruit juice, sodas and other sweetened drinks. The sugars in these liquids pool around the infant's teeth and gums, feeding the bacteria that cause plaque. Every time a child consumes a sugary liquid, acid attacks the teeth and gums. After numerous attacks, tooth decay can begin.

The condition also is associated with breast-fed infants who have prolonged feeding habits or with children whose pacifiers are frequently dipped in honey, sugar or syrup. The sweet fluids left in the mouth increases the chance of cavities while the infant is sleeping.

How can I prevent baby bottle tooth decay?

In the past, you never allowed children to fall asleep with a bottle containing milk, formula, juice or other  sweetened liquids,  but now using Predecay baby bottle,  you can offer the convenience and prevent tooth decay even when your baby fall asleep.
