Acid Wear in Children’s Teeth Is a Growing Concern

In Canada, dental professionals are seeing acid wear in a surprisingly high number of children and teenage patients.

Early intervention is key because:

  • Baby teeth have thinner and softer enamel than adult teeth
  • Children's eating habits can make their enamel more vulnerable to acid wear
  • Permanent teeth can be at most risk of acid wear as soon as they appear
  • Acid wear is irreversible

Children often eat a wide variety of acidic foods, including soft drinks, ketchup and even healthy foods such as fruits and fruit juices. It's important to make sure that your child’s permanent teeth, which come in mostly between the ages of 6 and 12, stay strong and healthy.

That’s why Pronamel® For Children is a daily toothpaste that is specially formulated to help protect children's teeth from the effects of acid wear. Developed with dentists, Pronamel® For Children is proven to help re-harden and strengthen acid-softened tooth enamel. It also has all the benefits of a regular fluoride toothpaste including cavity protection and fresh breath with brushing.
