How Can a Pacifier Impact My Child’s Teeth?

It is advisable to talk to your child-friendly dentist about using a pacifier properly. In this way you can reduce the risk of potential oral problems from overuse of a pacifier. Key takeaways:

  • Extended use of a pacifier can impact the roof of the mouth, so that over time the top and bottom rows of teeth will not touch.
  • Prolonged pacifier use can lead to teeth or jaw misalignment, as well as crooked or crowded teeth.
  • Your child should be weaned off a pacifier by the time they are two years old.
“While pacifiers can certainly be helpful, parents should use them with the understanding that they are temporary, not a habit to be encouraged.” Read the full story here : https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/how-does-a-pacifier-impact-your-childs-oral-health]]>
