Soda Spells Double Trouble

Toms River dental financing

Soft drinks, soda, pop. No matter what you call it, it seems to be the dietary villain of choice. In this post from Rotem Dental Care in Toms River NJ, we are going to give you yet another reason to avoid this ubiquitous drink.

Soda inflicts a double whammy of damage to your dental health with two of its ingredients: sugar and phosphoric acid.

Sugar is harmful to your teeth primarily because it softens enamel and makes the teeth more prone to cavities. This is especially harmful to little ones because their enamel is not fully developed.

Some people think that they’re in the clear because they opt for diet soda. Unfortunately, the acids found in diet soda have basically the same softening effect on enamel. Soda consumption can also cause teeth staining.

Our recommendation is simple: stop drinking soda, or cut way back on your consumption. Also, keep your kids away from soda as much as possible.

Can’t kick the habit? Try to drink water immediately after you have soda and brush more (but wait a half hour so the enamel isn’t brushed while it is soft).
