Choosing the Correct Pacifier


When choosing a pacifier, there are several factors to consider to make sure you get one that won’t damage baby’s oral health. Your dentist will be happy to advise:

– A single unit pacifier is better than one with detachable parts as there are fewer places for bacteria to accumulate.

– An orthodontic pacifier is shaped like a nipple and encourages correct jaw and teeth development.

– Choose a BPA-free pacifier for the greatest safety.

“When deciding whether or not to use a pacifier for your baby, you want to know which options are best for their oral health.”
