No Soda Here!
Soft drinks, soda, or pop, no matter how you refer to these carbonated drinks, they are not the best choice for your dental health. Due to their high sugar content they can put you at a much higher risk for tooth decay. The acids produced from the sugar soften the tooth enamel and eventually lead to cavities. If you combine this with a lack of dental hygiene, it can even lead to tooth loss!
One can of pop can have almost ten teaspoons of sugar inside! This creates a prosperous environment for bacteria to grow inside your mouth. This bacterial growth can result in cavities! It is best to avoid soft/carbonated drinks and choose other drinks such as water, milk or 100% fruit juice. If you do consume a can of pop, it is best to rinse your mouth out with water after. This will help to reduce the acid that can be building. In addition, use a toothpaste with fluoride and mouthwash daily to help strengthen your tooth enamel to fight against acid eating bacteria.
