Acid Erosion in Children’s Teeth Is a Growing Concern
In the United States, 9 out of 10 pediatric dentists report seeing signs of acid erosion in their patients.
Early intervention is key because:
- Baby teeth have thinner and softer enamel than adult teeth
- Children's eating habits can make their enamel more vulnerable to acid erosion
- Permanent teeth can be at most risk of acid erosion as soon as they appear
- Acid erosion is irreversible
Children often eat a wide variety of acidic foods, including soft drinks, ketchup and even healthy foods such as fruits and fruit juices. 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.
That’s why Pronamel® for Kids is a daily toothpaste that has been specifically designed to help protect children's teeth from the effects of acid erosion. Developed with dentists, Pronamel® for Kids is proven to re-harden and strengthen acid-softened tooth enamel. It also has all the benefits of a regular fluoride toothpaste including cavity protection and fresh breath with brushing.
