Many of our favorite foods and drinks cause our teeth harm and we don't even know it! Apples, bananas, honey and salad dressings are just a few!

Tooth enamel starts to dissolve at a pH below 5. 5 and dentin at a pH below 6.7. 


Be aware of how many acidic foods and drinks your children are eating everyday to preven acid erosion!

    1. Brush your teeth everyday, for two minutes

    2. Eat healthy snacks, like fruits and veggies
