Soda Spells Double Trouble

Fishers dental financing

Soft drinks, soda, pop. No matter what you call it, it seems to currently be the dietary villain of choice. In this blog post from Dental Care Today, we give you yet another important reason to avoid this ubiquitous drink.

For dental health, soda delivers a double punch of damage with two of its ingredients: sugar and phosphoric acid.

Sugar is bad for your teeth primarily because it softens enamel and makes the teeth more prone to cavities. This is especially harmful to kids, because their enamel is not fully developed.

Some people think they can avoid issues because they choose diet soda. Unfortunately, the acids found in diet soda have basically the same softening effect on enamel. Soda consumption can also lead to teeth staining.

Our recommendation is simple: stop drinking soda, or cut way back on your soda intake to improve your dental health. Also, keep your children away from soda as much as possible so that their teeth have the chance to mature properly.

Can’t kick the habit? Try to drink water immediately after you have soda and brush more (but wait a half hour so the enamel isn’t brushed while it is soft).
