Little Blin Rollins has a profound sweet tooth. According to his mother Amy, the boy chooses to drink juice instead of water, and doesn’t turn down almost any kind of sweet treat—from candies to chocolate and ‘gummy stuff’.

Your teeth work in the toughest conditions imaginable for any part of your body. They work in either freezing to near-boiling temperatures, are susceptible to damaging acid 24/7, surrounded by massive numbers of bacteria, and regularly absorb forces amounting from 120 to 150 pounds per square inch.
