Can Yoo Hoo Drink Cause Cavities In Children
Can sippy cups cause cavities in children? I've read that bottles can cause cavities in children, especially if they drink before bed, but i'd like to know if sippy cups can do the same thing. Is it better to avoid using them?
It : It is not the bottle or the cup that causes the problem of tooth decay... It's the juice or milk or formula that the child is drinking. These foods have sugars that sit and ferment and feed the bacteria around the teeth all night long. The acids that are produced cause the cavities. That's why it is called baby bottle syndrome.... A mouth full of cavities due to falling asleep with a bottle. Feed your child, and brush or wipe his/her teeth well before they go to bed. If they still need a bottle/cup, i would suggest water only. I'm sure the other panelists will give you some great advice, too hope this info helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Milk without added sugar (like flavored milk) is always preferred, but you should continue to follow excellent home care to help prevent cavities...No matter what. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What else could cause cavities in between teeth, if you floss, brush&and use act. I do not snack and only drink water and milk with one big meal a day?
Bacteria/genetics: You could have a more aggressive strain of the bacteria that cause cavities, known as streptococcus mutans. You could also have more acidic saliva, or even enamel that is weak due to genetics. I would suggest having a bacterial atp test and an oral ph test to see if the bacteria is the root cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Lots of reasons: If it is a tooth colored fillig there might be some c forces involved, that is, the material contracts a little when it is cured. If it was bonded to multiple walls of the filling at one time it is possible that the bonding is pulling the tooth together (sounds wierd, but thats what the research says) it is best to see your dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pain after filling: This could be caused by a number of issues. Was it a deep cavity? Are you biting high on the filling? Was the nerve exposed? Does it hurt without any temperature change?
