Soda can be a refreshing drink on a hot and sunny day. Kids love and enjoy sodas and many people even consume it with their meal. However, soda and soft drinks with high sugar may lead to type 2 diabetes, obesity and weight gain. This appetizing drink may damage your health and add extra calories to your diet. Studies show that consuming one can of soda each day maximize the chance of heart attack.

 

 

How soda affects your teeth

Teeth | Soda | Dentist| Flower Mound

The high amount of sugar present in soda weakens tooth enamel and destroys your teeth. However, sugar is just a part that makes the drink extremely dangerous for your teeth. Soda is highly acidic by nature and consuming such drinks may make tooth enamel weak and lead to tooth loss, cavities and decay.

Teeth are usually covered by a layer of bacteria or plaque. These bacteria are fed on the sugar that you drink and eat. Bacteria metabolize sugar and create acid as its byproducts. This acid actually attacks your teeth and makes your tooth structure weak. The acid continues to attack and weakens tooth enamel after you drink soda. Also, bacteria may lead to gum disease overtime and if left untreated, it may cause your teeth to fall out.

What you can do to protect your pearly whites

The first thing you should do is reduce soft drink consumption to protect teeth from further damage. Check out some steps to take to keep your pearly whites in good condition.

  • Take other drinks than soda – You should take drinks that contain less sugar and acid. This includes milk and fruit juice that are good for your health. It is advisable that you do not take more than one drink in a day. This will prevent your teeth from any kind of damage.
  • Use fluoride toothpaste and rinse – Using Fluoride toothpaste will enable you to decrease cavities and strengthen tooth enamel. As such, brush your teeth with Fluoride toothpaste after you take any food. Your dentist may also ask you to use mouthwash depending on your teeth condition.
  • Rinse with water – After you consume soft drink, rinse your mouth properly after drinking soda. Flushing your mouth with water will help to wash away residues, acids and stop from attacking your teeth.
  • Avoid brushing after drinking soda – You should not brush your pearly whites immediately after drinking soda. This is because the friction against acid-attacked teeth may cause harm to the tooth enamel. As such, wait for at least 30 minutes before you decide to brush.
  • Do not take drink before bedtime – You should try not to take soft drinks before going to bed. Sugar and acid may attack your teeth throughout the night and cause more harm to them.

Apart from these, you need to talk to your dentist to know how you can protect your teeth from soda attack and keep them strong for lifelong.
