Apple Cider Vinegar has many household cleaning and cooking uses. Recently, studies have shown it also has health benefits. The article below has 6 proven health benefits of apple cider vinegar. Have you tried it and had success?
As dental professionals, our concern with ingesting apple cider vinegar is the effects it has on your teeth. Vinegar has high acid content and acid breaks down enamel, which is the hard, outer protective layer of teeth.
We recommend that you dilute the apple cider vinegar with water, and definitely rinse your mouth out with water after using the vinegar. Using a prescription fluoride will provide an extra layer of protection on teeth to prevent acid breakdown.
We also recommend consulting your physician before trying any home remedy to be sure that it is safe for you to use.
What are your thoughts on using apple cider vinegar as a natural remedy?
Parents and kids alike always want to know, “when am I going to lose this tooth, or is my child behind on their teeth erupting?” Below is a tooth eruption chart provided by Crest that can be used as a guide. The important thing to remember is that all children are different, so a guide is strictly what this chart should be.
During your child’s 6 month exam, we will track this eruption, and let you know if we have any concerns. If we are concerned about the alignment of your child’s teeth, we may recommend an evaluation with an orthodontist. Between your child’s exam times, if you have any concerns, you can always reach out to our office and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
