Beware….”No Added sugar” means there is still sugar!
We wanted to bring up this topic as we are asked the following question regularly;
“Am I okay to drink sugar-free cordial/ drinks?”
Drinks that claim “zero sugar” means there is either zero sugar or artificial sweeteners which do not cause decay.
Drinks that claim no added sugar do in fact still already contain natural sugar but none has been added & regular consumption of these drinks would still increase your risk of developing decay.
The overall message is to reduce frequency of sugary intakes (via food or drink) throughout the day.
Even healthy food and drinks can be sugary and harmful like fruits, and cereal bars as they contain natural sugars like fructose leads to a higher risk of decay.

I find the practice environment at Oakthorpe professional, uncluttered, scrupulously clean, yet reassuringly comfortable. I have received high quality service on my three visits. I feel there has been consistently careful listening from staff who embody a sense of calm professionalism. At no time have I felt pressured or rushed during an appointment, there is plenty of time to discuss treatments or voice concerns. All staff team members whom I’ve met seem to feel valued and exude a quiet self-confidence.
Lastly, I would have no hesitation in recommending Oakthorpe to family and friends.
