We all have germs in our mouths-some good and some bad. The bad germs and bacteria cause cavities.
Germs and Bacteria can be spread from parents to infants and toddlers through saliva. ( Do not share cups, eating utensils or food, and don’t “clean off pacifier”s by putting them in your own mouth first.)
The germs make acids. The acids cause tooth decay. Tooth decay can be stopped if it is caught early.
