The upcoming Atlanta Dogwood Festival this weekend will include a Dental Health Spa offering parents education about acid erosion and other dental health issues.
Sponsored by Sensodyne, the exhibit will offer various educational activities, and feature a number of dental hygienists and other experts, including Atlanta-based family dentist Dr Latoyna Wade-Crear. One of the goals of the event is to educate parents about lesser known risks to dental health, such as acid erosion.
"It's important for Atlanta parents to learn more about acid erosion, which is an issue I am increasingly seeing among children in our office," says Dr. Wade-Crear. "By taking a few simple steps, they can help minimize the risk of acid erosion to their children's teeth."
Acid erosion is caused by acids from food and drink causing the tooth's enamel to soften. Foods with high acid content, such as fruit juice and soda, can aggravate the problem. A recent study by Sensodyne ProNamel found that while nine out of 10 pediatric dentists report signs of seeing acid erosion in their patients, over 90 percent of mothers don't think their child is at risk.
