Cough & Fever syrups cause cavities in kids teeth

Postby megrisoft » Thu Jan 12, 2006 7:57 am

In a bid to combat their child's cough and fever, parents might just end up causing cavities in their
kids teeth.

According to the study, antihistamine syrups used for treating children's flu and other chronic allergies may contain low pH levels and high acidity which can be a dangerous combination for a child's teeth. The sugar in the medication combined with the
acids dissolve dental enamel, causing erosion.

The flow of saliva, nature's buffer against cavities, decreases during the night, medicines given before bedtime can do a great deal of damage if a child does not brush away sugar and acids.

I feel brushing twice a day once at morning and once at night does ensure that no cavities come up.This practice should be done right from childhood only as this is a good habit and does not lead to development of tartar and plaque too.
We must take care of our teeth daily and properly.

Kids are more prone to cavities since they like to eat more sweets and for some unknown reason they kind of hate to brush their teeth that's why they are likely to get or develop cavities. I think as an adult we should practice them to brush their teeth right after they eat.
