If a pacifier (dummy) is used too much, it can have serious consequences on baby’s future oral health:
– Pressure from a pacifier can change the shape of baby’s mouth or cause jaw misalignment and protruding teeth.
– Unfortunately, these problems will not clear up of their own accord; they will only be able to be fixed by the dentist or orthodontics.
– Using honey with the pacifier can also cause tooth decay.
“Consider using the pacifier to soothe your baby only as a last resort once he or she is
past the age of one.”
