3 Reasons to Put that Soda Down


Posted on 8/25/2015 by Brandon Cooley
A large pack of soda cans.If you are a chronic soda drinker, it is time to figure out how to stop. Soda is doing immense damage to your teeth. You might not notice all of the damages right away; some occur very slowly, but the damages are detrimental.

If you are not convinced that soda is bad for your teeth, consider these three reasons why you should put that soda down.

1.  You are bathing your teeth in sugar. It's no secret that soda is pure sugar, with the exception of diet soda. That sugar metabolizes with the bacteria in your mouth causing enamel erosion, which eventually causes tooth decay. If you drink large amounts of soda per day, think of the amount of sugar you are coating your teeth in and how high your risk for tooth decay becomes.
2.  You are giving your mouth an acidic environment. Sugar and acid are the two things that eat away at your enamel and with soda - you are providing both of them at once. This means you are creating the perfect environment for enamel erosion, tooth decay, and even gum disease.
3.  Diet soda is not better for your teeth. Many people are under the assumption that because diet soda does not have any calories or any sugar, it is okay for their body and their teeth, but this is not true. Diet soda has just as much acid as its regular counterpart, which means it can do just as much damage to your enamel.

Try replacing your soda with water and please call us for an appointment to get your oral health back on track!
