February brings the perfect time to review our food and drink habits, in particular, is our consumption of fizzy drinks. A leading cause of tooth decay, with every sip of a fizzy drink said to cause an attack on your teeth for up to 20 minutes, it’s clear to see the damage that this carbonated habit can be causing all of us.
Which brings us to Fizz Free February, organised by celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Labour’s deputy leader, Tom Watson, they have come together to create the campaign. Looking to tackle the latest data released, which revealed a 70% increase in teenage diabetes over the past 4 years.
Whilst the month event will help to tackle this staggering rise in diabetes, it will also help to serve the evident tooth decay issue we are seeing in patients of all ages. Seeing the month as a personal challenge, for many of us it can bring a healthier mindset and motivate us to make changes in aspects of our lives that we may have been putting on the back shelf.
We are an Exeter dentist based in the heart of the city, offering general and cosmetic dental treatments.
