As a pediatric dentist office, we recommend that your child avoids drinking too much soda, juice, coffee or anything that contains a lot of sugar. You child should also stay away from excess sweets, desserts and particularly sour candy. Acidic fruit is also bad for your child's teeth. A diet high in sugar and starch can even help bacteria grow. Simultaneously, when your child eats foods that are highly acidic, it can lead to enamel erosion. At Camelback Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we recommend that your child's diet consist of more green leafy vegetables, lean protein, dairy and nuts since they can help to re-mineralize and strengthen your child's teeth. For more tips on how your child can follow a mouth-healthy diet, call 602-595-3531
