Sugar in medicine can cause tooth decay

Sugar in medicine can cause tooth decay

Our Liverpool Dentist understands that sugars in medicines may also cause tooth decay. Many paediatric medicines, including those sold without prescription, have sugar free alternatives. Clinicians should prescribe sugar free medicines and parents/carers should request them.

Pharmacists should be encouraged to stock and recommend sugar free alternatives to the most commonly used prescription and general sale medicines.

If you have any concerns about your childs teeth or dental development, please contact our Liverpool Dentist.
