Infants are born without bacteria that cause cavities.
Did you know that infants are born without the bacteria that can cause cavities? Often, they get these bacteria through transmission via food and saliva from others; most often from family members. Therefore, think twice before sharing food and utensils, or even cleaning a pacifier with your mouth.
