Water and Teeth

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease of children aged 6 to 11 years and of adolescents aged 12 to 19. Tooth decay is four times more common than asthma among adolescents aged 14 to 17 years."1 According to the American Dental Association "...when teeth come in frequent contact with soft drinks and other sugar-containing substances, the risk of (tooth) decay formation is increased."2 When it comes to what kids drink, less sugar equals better health. Replacing sugary drinks with water can help prevent tooth decay.
