Warning: Healthy treats not so beneficial

Some studies show that raisins or cereal bars and drinks like smoothies or fruit juices can be as damaging to teeth as soda, according to a recent report in DentistryToday.com

Many treats that claim to be healthy options may contain excessive amount of sugar or high acidity levels, which cause enamel damage.

There are cases where children end up with some type of tooth decay, even though the child’s parents took measures to prevent it.

This information shows that water may generally be the best beverage for children to drink, even instead of apple juice. The problems will likely be exacerbated if the child doesn’t visit the dentist on a regular basis.
