What Does Soda Do to Our Teeth?

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Be careful of heavy soda consumption. 

We know that consuming large amounts of sugar is not good for our health, and, as the weather gets nicer, you may be tempted to grab a cold soda. Heavy consumption of soda can increase your chances of cavities, gum disease and other health issues such as diabetes.
The two things that make this drink so bad for our health are the sugar and acid found in soda. Sugar mixes with bacteria in our mouth and creates a harmful acid that can increase your chances of dental health issues. You also need to be careful of sugar-free soda. Although it may be sugar-free, the acid is still present and can wear away at your tooth enamel.
The best beverage to quench your thirst and also keep your mouth healthy is water. If you do have the occasional soda, make sure you drink water along with it to help neutralize the acids.

From Our Patients:

Dr. Lechner has been my dentist for as long as he's been in Delaware. He was the first dentist to recognize that my having had rheumatic fever meant that I should take an antibiotoc prior to a dentist visit. From that time forward, I have not come down with any sort of illness following a dentis appointment. Thank you for all these wonderful years of healthy teeth and general good health!
