Juice is Healthy, Right?
By Dr Jess
Juice is healthy right? …. Unfortunately not really. Juice can be very damaging to your kid’s teeth. Juice, pop tops and cordials all contain lots of sugar as well as acid. This combination is very effective at encouraging decay. An occasional small glass with a meal is unlikely to cause problems but if your children are having these sweet treats between meals or instead of water or plain milk they may be at an increased risk of decay. A check up with Dr Jess or Dr Henry will allow us to assess your child’s risk of future decay and to work with you to come up with some strategies to keep your kids teeth healthy and strong
