Addicted to Soda

Sandy Springs dentist near me
Notice the Acid enamel erosion!

Whoa, hard to believe! But the consumption of soda can cause similar damage like the illegal use of drugs such as methamphetamines or crack cocaine.   The tooth erosion can occur from the acid found in soda.  According to the study conducted by the peer-reviewed clinical journal of the Academy of General Dentistry, researchers found the same type and severity of damage from tooth erosion in each of the participants.

Obviously, in order to have the same effect, a significant amount of soda has to be consumed.  Nonetheless, the effects are similar and need to be conscious of.

And our recommendation to patients is minimize the intake of soda and consume more water.  If you can’t stop drinking soda, don’t brush immediately afterwards because you could damage your teeth enamel.  Rather chew xylitol based sugarless gums or rinse with water to remove the acid agents left behind by soda.

If we can be of help, don’t hesitate to contact us for your complimentary consultation.
