According to some celebrities, a fresh fruit and veggie juice is not only tasty, it’s trendy.
I thought 'juiceaholic' was a new phrase I had just coined, but according to Google, it appears to have been around for a while. There is a new generation of people hooked on juicing diets. And it seems to be for different reasons – slimming, health, skin conditions, better life styles, trend. Whether it’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s recommendations, Jason Vale’s 7lbs in 7 days, or just a bit of lemon with hot water, these can all have an effect on the teeth.
Due to the juicing diets being all the craze at the moment, I’ve seen more signs of erosion on my patients’ teeth. So I thought it was important to educate my patients on the long term effects the acid from the juicing diets may have on our teeth, and what can be done to avoid the damage from occurring.
