You have to be vigilant about your child's oral health.

If you have had a history of issues with your oral health, you have to be vigilant about your child's. While there are no anitbiotic that can get rid of this bacteria in your child's mouth, pediatricians are urged by the Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to inquire about the parents' dental history once their child turns 6 months old. If there is a history of dental issues, they are supposed to recommend the necessary precautions.
