February is National Children's Dental Health Month

Studies show that smart, healthy snacking with less sugar is critical to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Healthy YOU Vending provides convenient access to a variety of low-sugar snack options.

For many decades, it has been common knowledge amongst most Americans that sugary foods and starches can have detrimental effects on dental health. Young children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable when it comes to dental decay due to inefficient hygiene habits and underdeveloped enamel.

It is important to limit dietary intake of sugary snacks and beverages, particularly outside of regular mealtimes. Edibles that are sticky, such as fruit snacks, candies, caramels, jelly beans and raisins can adhere to teeth and gum lines. This prevents saliva from washing away the build-up left behind, resulting in plaque.

Bacteria found in plaque uses sugar as its primary energy source to release enamel-eroding acids which, over time, will form cavities and other dental complications. To maintain a healthy dental environment, avoidance of foods high in sugar is suggested, especially for young children. If this is not a feasible option, it is recommended that a brushing and flossing routine be implemented immediately after ingesting sugary foods and beverages.

Replacing common snacks with healthier, low-sugar options is a beneficial lifestyle change that can have long-lasting and powerful effects on dental health, especially in children. It is also imperative that adolescents learn constructive eating habits that will positively impact the health of their mouth over the course of a lifetime.
