What Types of Pacifiers are Best for Infants?


Were you aware that some pacifiers are healthier for the teeth and gums of your baby when compared to others? Are there any types which provide additional benefits and what tips might a dentist provide? These questions deserve a bit more attention.

Most experts recommend choosing a BPA-free pacifier. BPA is a chemical that is used to harden plastics. However, this substance may also cause developmental issues such as hyperactivity.

Another recommendation involves the use of a one-piece pacifier. This arises from the fact that it will be much more difficult for bacteria to accumulate (no cracks or gaps are present).

It is likewise important to purchase an orthodontic pacifier. These types of pacifiers closely resemble the natural shape of a nipple. This helps to eliminate alignment issues with the teeth and gums as your infant begins to grow.

Once again, keep these recommendations in mind:

  • Make certain to purchase a BPA-free pacifier.
  • One-piece designs are much more hygienic when compared to those made from multiple sections.
  • Choose a pacifier that offers an orthodontic shape.
