Soft drinks, sugared or otherwise, are generally not good for your teeth

Dentist TOWN

There are many systemic impacts of drinking too much soda, especially those containing phosphoric acid.

The most common is the resulting lower level of bone calcium from a condition called nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism. Bottom line, thinning bones.

Non-sugared sodas – colas, root beers and citrus drinks – present acid which erodes tooth enamel, even if it doesn’t cause tooth decay.

Sugared drinks not only the erosive acid but present mouth bacteria and plaque with the particular “food” they need to grow and produce more mouth acid which results in cavities.

While some report a lowered percentage of children consuming sugared soft drinks, still some 20% of children’s total beverage consumption comes from such drinks.

Drinking soda, sugared or non-sugared, once in a while is not a problem. But drinking it daily, especially sugared versions, can result in a lifetime of compromised dental health. So, please limit the amount you and your children drink every day.
