Did you know that you could be passing cavity-causing bacteria on to your baby? Babies are not born with the germs that cause cavities - they acquire them from grown-ups. This means dental disease can start with a baby’s first tooth.
Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease in the United States – yet oral health problems are nearly 100% preventable. Start these good oral health practices from the very beginning of your baby’s life, and help to avoid significant problems down the road.
You have the power to prevent cavities!
