Fruit Juices with no added refined sugar - Can they cause cavities?
I have a question about fruit juices. Not Hi-C and fruit punches, but the Naked Smoothies and Cranberry/Orange Juices that say 100 percent juice no sugar added.

I'm quite thin and my doctor told me that I have to gain weight if I want to have a healthy pregnancy. So roughly two years now I'm drinking a lot of these smootie juices from Naked. As well as my orange juice, cranberry / grape juices and smoothies from my fruits I make myself.

I think, though, this migh effect my teeth. I had a filling done last year and I think I have pain now on the other side of my mouth that might indicate another cavity. However, I went for a cleaning a month ago and he didn't find any cavities. I brush twice a day and after sugary snacks if I'm home.

But I drink two full cups of juice a day. Will I need to worry about my teeth? Should I water down my drinks? Drink with a straw? Like I've said, these are 100% fruit juice drinks and made of natural sugar. Thoughts?
