Fast Food Puts Teens on the Fast Track to Cavities

With teenagers eating an increased amount of fast food and carbonated beverages to keep up with their busy lifestyle, family dental clinics are witnessing a generation inflicting serious damage to their oral and overall health.

“One of the leading causes of cavities is from carbonated beverages; which not only result in cavities but also increase obesity in today’s teenager.”

A poor diet that consists of sugary treats and fast food can result in premature loss of tooth enamel, resulting in a weaker tooth structure. Due to this, it is especially important that teenagers try to maintain a healthy diet.

One of the leading causes of cavities is from carbonated beverages; which not only result in cavities but also increase obesity in today’s teenager.

The citric, tartaric, carbonic and phosphoric acids that come from pop can often lead to the breakdown of tooth enamel, naturally leading to cavities or tooth decay.

In order to actively prevent cavities from occurring, teenagers and parents need to decrease the amount of sugar-filled pop consumed. In addition, regular checkups and cleanings need to be scheduled at your local family dental clinic to ensure optimal oral health.

WHAT IS THE ITERO® ELEMENT™ INTRAORAL SCANNER?

The iTero Element Scanner is a digital impression system that allows your local dentist to forgo messy putty in your mouth. We can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

NO GOOP. NO GAG. NO WORRIES.

During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. We can use the scanner for new patient, hygiene and Invisalign appointments.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Eliminates the need to retake impressions.
  • Fast and accurate.
  • No unpleasant taste or smell.
  • See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile.
