Effects Soda Has on Your Teeth
Posted on 6/25/2018 by Dr Jonathan Ford
Sadly, for many people, soda is a common staple within the diet. Many people substitute for water, which can cause some major damage inside your body. One of the many areas of your health that can be affected is your teeth. These are a few of the ways constant soda consumption impacts your oral health. Acid Erosion Most sodas are highly acidic. They contain citric and phosphoric acid, both of which are incredibly damaging to your enamel. Acids attack the teeth, causing the enamel to soften. Ultimately, this will increase your risk of decay and cavities. Unfortunately, once the enamel is gone, it is gone for good. There is no way to replace it, and it will not regenerate like other cells in your body. Regular enamel loss will result in exposure of the inner dentin layers of your teeth, and this may be painful. In addition to increased sensitivity, the color of your teeth might also start to change. Not only is soda staining, but as the enamel wears down, your teeth will start to yellow. This occurs when the inner dentin layer - which is yellow in color - becomes visible through the thinning enamel. Unfortunately, whitening won't help to reverse it. Tooth Decay At any given moment, your gums and teeth are covered with a substance known as plaque. This sticky layer of bacteria feeds on sugar, which is readily available in soda. When that bacteria comes into contact with soda, they start to metabolize the sugar to create acid. As previously noted, those acids will attack the structure of your teeth for a minimum of 20 minutes. With each sip, you are restarting that 20-minute acid attack on your vulnerable teeth. Don't let soda wreak havoc on your teeth and leave you with an unpleasant smile. Call us today to set up your evaluation....
