While it may be hard to believe, the acidity and high sugar content of fruit juice can be hard on kids' teeth. Eating whole fruits & vegetables, and drinking water is always a better option!

Did you know that potato chips can be harder on kids' teeth than candy? Starchy foods can get stuck in between teeth and in hard to reach crevices giving bacteria plenty of sugar to snack on!

While it certainly can be a better option than other sugary snacks, fruit in a pouch isn't as healthy as it may seem. Many brands, even those made with organic fruit often contain incredible amounts of sugar. Plus, pouches are missing most of the fiber found in whole fruits and vegetables. Not only do your teeth miss what they're designed to do (to chew), but fruit in a pouch can cling longer to teeth, giving cavity causing bacteria plenty of time to grow.

Regular dental visits and attention to oral care are especially important for those living with diabetes. People with diabetes are at special risk for periodontal (gum) disease. Many people with diabetes may also experience dry mouth, which can increase the risk for tooth decay.

Have you considered an orthodontic evaluation?
Having straight teeth can mean more than just a great smile. Properly spaced teeth allows for healthier gums, prevents abnormal tooth wear, makes teeth easier to clean and can even prevent headaches or neck pain caused by excessive stress on the gums and the bone that support your teeth!
