Yoghurt ‘can cause tooth decay’

Yoghurt 'can cause tooth decay'Children who consume large amounts of yoghurt containing sugar could require emergency dentistry to repair rotten teeth, a dentist has warned.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, said: “It should be remembered that many yoghurts in the UK contain added sugar and … that increasing the frequency of sugar containing foods and drinks leads to an increase in dental decay”, the Daily Mail reports.

The dentist’s comments came in response to a study into tooth decay in children by researchers at Fukuoka University in Japan.

Of 2,058 Japanese children aged three-years-old it was found that there was less decay among those who ate yoghurt on a regular basis.

Factors such as diet history, tooth-brushing frequency, if the child snacked, used fluoride or was exposed to smoking while in the womb were all taken into account, alongside the parents’ level of education, when compiling the results.

The importance of children brushing their teeth twice a day was recently reported by My Joy Online, which explained that children’s teeth enamel is not as dense as adults.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19818263-ADNFCR
