For years, dentists have warned about the harmful effects soda has on the health of your teeth. But many people have either ignored the advice or not thought that it was really true.

In an effort to help you have the best oral health possible, Dr. Mark Curtis and Dr. Edward Reifman wants to share his views and facts on why soda is bad for your teeth.

Is it really bad for my teeth?

The short answer to this question is yes. Soda and other soft drinks contain high levels of acids. These acids attack the enamel – the outer layer – of your teeth, making them vulnerable to cavities, infections, and even tooth death.

Regular soda consumption can even lead to gum disease if you’re not vigilant with your oral health routine.

What should I do about it?

To be clear, a soda every now and then isn’t going to ruin all of your teeth and cause them to fall out. Rather, what you should be concerned about is if you drink soda on a regular basis and don’t take care of your oral health properly. Even then, drinking soda every day is still an assault on your oral health.

You should trim your soda intake back to safer levels and increase your oral health regimen if you want to combat its harmful effects on your teeth.

While soda may taste great, the truth is that it’s terrible for your oral health. Without good oral health, the rest of your body suffers as well. If you want more information about this topic, please don’t hesitate to call us today at 928-277-4754.
