Research has found that sugary drinks and foods are a major cause of the rotting teeth of children. One surgeon even went on a limb to say these foods and drinks should carry warnings similar to that of cigarettes! Numbers don’t lie… 46,500 children are in the hospital each year due to teeth removal. Sugar is leading to terrible tooth decay for these children.
Where it is found that our children’s teeth are healthier than they were last decade, there is obviously still a major concern for oral health in children. We have to take care of our teeth, adults and children! TrueDentalDiscounts encourages everyone to watch what they eat and make sure you brush your teeth when appropriate.
