Soda Spells Double Trouble

Marble Falls dental financing

Soft drinks, soda, pop. No matter what you call it, it seems to currently be the dietary villain of choice. Today, we are going to give you yet another important reason to avoid this ubiquitous drink.

For dental health, soda inflicts a double punch of damage with two of its ingredients: sugar and phosphoric acid.

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

Some men and women think that they can avoid issues because they settle upon diet soda. Unfortunately, the acids found in diet soda have basically the same detrimental softening effect on enamel.

Soda consumption can also lead to teeth staining. If your teeth are already stained from soda or anything else, call 830-693-8833 to schedule a teeth whitening consultation.

Our recommendation is simple: stop drinking soda or greatly lessen your soda drinking to improve your dental health. Also, keep your children away from soda as much as possible so that their teeth have the chance to mature healthily.

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

I’m Dr. Greg Ritchie. At Ritchie Dental Group we provide advanced general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry to the Marble Falls area. If you have any questions about general or cosmetic dentistry, give us a call at 830-693-8833.
