Early Childhood Caries

A study published in "Oral Health" found that young children between the ages of 13 and 18 months that took systemic antibiotics demonstrated a considerable increase in the risk  of early childhood caries compared to children that did not take medication.
Tooth decay can start as early as 6 months of age, we feel that all children should have a dental evaluation before their first birthday! Untreated primary tooth decay can lead to infections, loss of function, delayed development of the permanent teeth and dental mal occlusions, which can lead to increased health care costs and lifelong health consequences if they are left untreated.
