Causes and symptoms of Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Diploma in Paediatrics, MD (Physician)
Pediatrician, Gurgaon
Causes and symptoms of Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Baby bottle syndrome is a decay that affects the milk teeth in children who fall asleep with a bottle containing sugary drinks. Prolonged contact between the liquid and the surface of the teeth promotes the destruction of tooth enamel.

Causes and symptoms

The symptoms of baby bottle tooth decay are discoloration of the tooth (enamel), with the formation of yellow or black spots on the surface.

When a child falls asleep with a bottle containing sugary liquids such as milk, fruit juice, sugar water, or with a pacifier dipped in honey or syrup - bacteria present in the mouth, (streptococcus mutans to be precise) transform the sugar into lactic acid.

Normally, the saliva helps to neutralize this acidity, but its production declines during sleep. Thus, teeth are subjected to acid attacks that promote the formation of cavities. As milk teeth are weaker than permanent teeth, decay can be quick with enamel getting hit first, then dentin and finally the pulp in the centre of the tooth.

At this stage, the infection can spread rapidly to other teeth, causing significant pain when the dental abscess formation often requires removal of the damaged teeth.

Precautions

To avoid it, the first thing to do of course is to stop giving your child a sweetened drink at night or when putting the child for a nap. You should also brush your baby's milk teeth twice a day, especially at bedtime with a cotton swab and water and in a year - with a toothbrush and toothpaste.

In case, the teeth are already decayed or you have doubts about it (staining of the tooth that becomes pink or white can be the harbinger of decay), consult a paediatric dentist immediately. Decayed milk teeth may lead to deformation of the permanent teeth if not attended to immediately.

I am a grandma. Why does doctors advise hot water bath and refuse to give drinking water to new born babies?

Hello, Warm water bath can surely be given. But feeding water before 6 months of age can lead to various infections in the baby. Mother milk has enough water vo tent in it ro prevent dehydration. Water is the major source of infection for any age group.

Which milk supplement is good for kids? Junior horlicks/lil champs/pediasure/horlicks growth plus or any others.

Which milk supplement is good for kids? Junior horlicks/lil champs/pediasure/horlicks growth plus or any others.
As such if a child is having normal indian food then there is no need of a supplement at all but if child is not eating properly then first approach should be towards proper eating habits and not just to give supplements bcz no supplement can give you proper nutrition still if you want to give then they all have different nutritive value and you can give them alternatively.

What can be the cause if a six year child dont show any interest towards study? is this to be taken much seriously?

MD - Paediatrics, FIAP (Neonatology)
Pediatrician, Chandigarh
Most of the children are interested towards play. So refrain from studies. Well if he doesn't shows interest in any thing then it can be iron deficiency. A detailed history and iq assesment is required for proper remedy.

My daughter 2.8 years age often complaints about stomachache; more often before passing stool. What can be the reason and what is the remedy.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
Repeated stomachache is common in that age. If the stools are well formed, no blood & mucus in the stools, urinary symptoms you can ignore it. Give noworm suspension 10ml at bedtime & repeat after 15 days. If much concerned get ultrasound scanning done.

Polio vaccine is a must. We are going to be free from this crippling disease due to vaccine. In few years we will not be required to give oral polio vaccine. Now injectable polio vaccine is need of hour. You should take your baby to nearest health centre /pediatrician for regular vaccines. Vaccination helps in checking of infection in community.

This is a common complaint made by parents. In my opinion it is parents who are at fault. Young kids do not know what is good for them so they continue with natural way of getting nutrition . At the age of 5-6 months mother must start giving liquid,semisolids as weaning food.Failure to do it results in malnutrition anorexia

My baby recovered from sepsis on 3rd days of born due to bacterial infection by vancomycin .he is now 1.5 month & is o.k.,received pcv13 & one doctor says not to take PENTA1 vaccine.

Hexaxim is a vaccine which has Diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, (DTaP), Polio, HIB and Hepatitis B components. If cost is not an issue it is a good choice. Otherwise many choices are available without injectable polio vaccine. That is fine too. You can give oral polio vaccine and Pentvac, Easyfive etc. This is half the cost and equally effective. These also contain DPT, HIB and Hepatitis B minus injectable polio.

MD, MBBS

Avoid tin food which has multiple adverse effects on baby. Exclusive breastfeeding for first 6 months is ideal. Breasrfeeding during travel is not in issue for the greater interest of your baby's good health in future.

This is a very pertinent question and many parents in india would have the same questions in their mind. Let us get down to the basics first. Vaccine is something which gives your baby extra protection against a particular disease. The human body is equipped with an immune system, which normally protects from disease causing germs. Vaccines only strengthens the immune system. Taking a vaccines does not guarantee that your baby would not get the infection, but it decreases the risk markedly. Similarly not taking the vaccine, does not mean your baby is certainly going to have the disease, but it definitely reduces the risk significantly. So giving the vaccine is surely an advantage. The disadvantage is the price, as the pneumococcal vaccine is quite costly compared to other vaccines. The government can not bear the cost for all the eligible children in india, so as for now parents have to pay if they wish to give this advantage to their baby.

Baby should gain minimally around 20 gms per day in first three month of life. Your babies weight gain is much above that level. So no need to worry.
