Stay Away from Sour

Posted on July 5th, 2013 by

The damaging effects of soda and sugary foods on tooth enamel has been extensively studied. The Minnesota Dental Association decided to take it a step further to find out the serious harm sour candies can have on children’s teeth. Pediatric dentist Dr. John Ruby tested the pH levels of many popular candies, with these results:
These numbers may come as a shock, considering these highly-acidic sour candies are easily accessible in varieties of kinds and flavors. Consuming them frequently can severely damage the immature tooth enamel on your child’s teeth and cause erosion. The best way to prevent this from happening is limiting these kinds of treats in your children’s diet.
If you are concerned about the state of your kids’ teeth due to excessive consumption of candy, book an appointment with us. We can ensure their teeth are in good condition, as well as recommend any additional treatment that may be necessary.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
