When looking for pacifier, safety is a major concern. You do not want a pacifier that comes apart and hurts the oral cavity.

Key takeaways:

  • Choose a pacifier that will not affect the development of the jaw or tooth alignment. The pacifier should also not come apart when in the mouth.
  • In the first few months, clean the gums with gauze. Rubbing the gums also helps during teething.
  • Once teeth appear, ensure that your child is brushing twice every day with fluoride toothpaste.

Orthodontic pacifiers are supposed to keep your baby’s jaws in proper alignment, but Delarosa says that the frequency, intensity, and duration of sucking are more likely to affect your child’s bite than a pacifier type. Use whichever one your baby prefers.
