No Sugar Bugs

So my Bella has bad teeth. She was born with reflux and her teeth developed brown spots and soft spots. Our amazing Dentist has been monitoring them since she was around 3. We have had to fill a couple of brown/soft spots because they broke through the surface.

Last October I took the three youngest in for their cleanings. Two got a clean bill of health and could just come back in April for a cleaning and one of them had two spots that were breaking through and would need to be filled at the next appointment.

So when I scheduled Bella’s appointment I made sure there was enough time for cleaning and fillings.

April got here and my oldest son went but the youngest two were sick. Then I never called back and rescheduled their appointments.

Fast forward through the summer months where I avoided the phone calls when they would call. Then would proceed to write myself a note to call them and stick it in my planner and realize after hours I never called. Call and leave them a message only to avoid their call again when it would ring.

This past week I set up all three of the younger ones with appointments. We are technically 53 weeks past the littles last appointment. I just scheduled a cleaning for both of them and figured I would set up her fillings for next week.

Guess what? No more soft spots*! The brown spots are still there but no soft spots. Let me also say my children are not the best at brushing teeth either. Over the past year we probably have had about 80% of them that didn’t include toothbrush to mouth contact.

There is only ONE thing that has changed in this time and that is we have added Juice Plus to our daily diets! It is filling the gap from what we are missing and what my children have not been doing. They have been drinking more water. They are making healthier choices in the snacks and foods they pick. They are branching out and trying new things.

If we only make one change for the next few years I will take it! The thing is while we have only made ONE change in what we are doing, my children and my family are making other healthier choices and most of the time they don’t even realize it!

Best thing of all is we are currently participating in the Children’s Health Study. If you haven’t heard about it here are the basics on how it works:

The way the Children’s Health Study works is simple. For every parent, grandparent, or other adult that signs up as a Juice Plus+® customer, the study provides Juice Plus+® Orchard Blend and Juice Plus+® Garden Blend free to a child, teenager, or college student for up to four years. At various intervals — after 4-8 months and then at the end of each year — adult participants are asked to fill out a voluntary survey to determine whether (and how) their families’ health habits have changed as a result of taking Juice Plus+®.

Interested in learning more or becoming involved in the ongoing CHS? I would love to talk to you!

*This does not mean that you can just take Juice Plus+ and not brush your teeth and have zero cavities. What this does mean is this time Juice Plus+ helped Bella’s gums and mouth, this time.
