Protect Your Kid’s Teeth from Acid Erosion
In the United States, 9 out of 10 pediatric dentists report seeing signs of acid erosion in their patients. That’s because children’s eating habits can make their enamel more vulnerable to acid erosion. Children often eat a wide variety of acidic foods, including soft drinks, ketchup, and even healthy foods, such as fruits and fruit juices.
That’s why early intervention is key. It's important to make sure that children's permanent teeth, which come through mostly between the ages of 6 and 12, stay strong and healthy, since they can be most at risk of acid erosion as soon as they appear.
