It’s Time for Soda to Lose its Fizz

Healthy Teeth

Face it, those fizzy soft drinks we love can be hard on our teeth. Family dentistry experts have been warning us that regular consumption of carbonated beverages will erode tooth enamel and lead to serious decay. That’s because the sugars in sodas turn to acid as soon as they hit the mouth. Eventually, that acid erodes enamel and leads to tooth decay. Diet sodas aren’t much better. They may not contain sugar, but they still turn to acid in the mouth, with the same dire consequences as their sugary cousins. It may be time to face the bitter truth about all those carbonated beverages we consume.

HealthCanal.com recently reported on a study at the University of Adelaide, which suggested that soft drinks might need to include explicit warning labels about the potential dangers of these drinks to teeth, explaining that soft drinks can contribute to a wide range of dangerous dental effects. This would likely be good news to family dentistry experts.

“Tooth decay carries with it significant physical, social, and health implications, and we believe the risk of tooth decay should be included in any warnings relating to sweet drinks,” said one of the researchers from the study.

While warning labels are only a possibility in the future, you can start cutting back or cutting out these carbonated beverages now and be proactive about your own dental care. Parents can replace their child’s sodas with milk, fluoridated water, and other drinks to improve their child’s dental care regimen. An affordable dentist can be found at Advanced Dental Care of Shady Road to apply dental sealants.

It’s important to find an affordable dentist who will do everything to help preserve your dental health, since everyone wants to feel good about the appearance of their teeth.
