Many different types of food cause decay in kids, not just candy.  Foods high in carbohydrate juice boxes,peanut butter, chips also attack children’s teeth- think about it when they eat crackers and smile and you see all that smush on their teeth-it isn’t good for their teeth!

What about soda? Daily prolonged exposure to soda can cause decay. Sipping a pop all afternoon is more harmful to the teeth then drinking a large soda with your meal.

Drinking fizzy or carbonated drinks – over a long period of time- contributes to the erosion of tooth enamel.  If erosion spreads beneath the enamel pain and sensitivity may result and can cause a nerve infection and then removing the  tooth or a root canal is  necessary
