Can a Pacifier Impact My Child’s Oral Health?

Pacifiers used over a long period of time can have a detrimental effect on your child’s oral health. Talk with a child-friendly dentist for advice on how best to use a pacifier.

Key takeaways:

– Lengthy use of a pacifier can alter the shape of the mouth, in particular the roof of the mouth.
– Pacifiers may lead to misaligned teeth and potentially changes in the alignment of the jaw.
– View pacifiers as temporary and have your baby weaned off them by the age of two, if not before.

“By using a pacifier properly, you can enjoy its benefits while reducing the risk that your child would experience oral health problems as a result.”
