Get schooled on sippies

Quick, what’s the biggest cause of cavities in young children? Sippy cups and bottles – or more specifically, what’s in them. When kids sip sugary beverages in-between meals or at bedtime, their teeth are exposed to a higher risk of decay. So the best idea is to serve water all day, and save milk or juice for mealtimes only. And be sure and schedule your child’s first dental exam no later than their first birthday. Don’t forget, to help establish healthy dental habits early, Bluefish Dental sees kids up to age two for new patient exams and six-month checkups at no charge. Schedule an appointment today.
