Children's Dentist

Unfortunately, the potential for tooth decay starts the moment the first baby tooth erupts. Baby Bottle Tooth Decay (BBTD) is a common, but preventable problem many parents in the Overlook area are facing. Dr. Ward believes that allowing children to sleep with a bottle filled with any sugary liquid including formula, milk, breast milk or juice can lead to BBTD. Even breast feeding mothers should be concerned with tooth decay. If you allow your child to fall asleep while on the breast, baby tooth decay can occur. And once your child starts eating solid foods, frequent sweets or sticky foods can cause decay and should be avoided.

Start good habits including dental visits with Dr. Ward. He can help your child develop strong, healthy teeth and give you suggestions on how to prevent BBTD.
