I was worried that his teeth weren't doing very well. He is 9 and started raw a few years ago.
His new teeth were yellow and there was a brown spot on the back of the front tooth. I was worried all the raw sweets were causing this. When we first went raw I gave him alot of raw cheese cake and other raw sweets because that was all I could make that he would like. Plus all the green smoothies.
The dentist says his teeth are strong and look fine and the yellowing is probably from when he was sick all the time and on antibiotics.
So, I just wanted to share with everyone that raw kids teeth can be healthy. But we are making sure he brushes after raw sweets now and trying to be more concious of the fact that just because it's healthy..it still can cause tooth decay if you don't brush after or rinse with water.
He likes a green smoothie at school for lunch..so I just tell him to eat his salad afterwards so it can act as a brush and wash out the sweets.
He is such a good boy and goes along with this raw thing so well. I am truly blessed to have him.
