For years, many people have worried about their child's teeth if they give them a pacifier.
Now, pacifiers are getting support from an unlikely group: dentists.
The pacifier is getting the support in a study published by the Academy of General Dentistry.
The report says pacifiers can help reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
The risk for SIDS is reduced because sucking a pacifier makes it possible for a baby to awake from a deep sleep.
If you are still worried about your child's teeth, dentists say teeth alignment problems usually self-correct within six months after a child stops using a pacifier.
