Here at Teeth-in-Line a big part of our job is giving our patients dietary advice.

When wearing braces, foods with high sugar intake, and fizzy drinks can increase the risk of damage to teeth.

Our aim is to give our patients the knowledge to enable them to make healthy choices and help prevent damage to their teeth.

We are supporting the change for life campaign which is aimed to show families easy ways they can cut back on sugar, to help tackle growing rates of childhood obesity and dental decay, by encouraging them to make simple like-for-like swaps on foods like fruit juice drinks, breakfast cereals and yoghurts.

The website https://www.nhs.uk/change4life has lots of fun ideas and convenient apps to help your kids stay healthy!
