Like the majority of parents, you’re probably familiar with the pros and cons of pacifier use. In most cases, your doctor is the best source of advice regarding when it’s safe to start and stop using pacifiers with your child. 

The question is, what does a dentist have to say about pacifier use?

Key takeaways:

  • Avoid any pacifiers that contain BPA, a chemical that can affect the neurological and behavioural development of your child. Natural rubber or silicone are good alternatives. 
  • One-piece pacifiers reduce the risk of choking, and are easier to keep clean.
  • Choose orthodontic pacifiers, which are safer and more comfortable for the baby.

If you have specific concerns about how pacifiers can affect your child and their teeth, feel free to discuss them with your dentist.
