Put That Soda Down Before It Puts Your Teeth at Risk

Healthy Teeth

There’s nothing sweet about what sugary drinks like sodas do to your teeth. Once that carbonation hits your mouth, all that sugar in your soda turns to acid, eroding your tooth enamel and leading to serious decay. Even diet sodas aren’t safe. Although they don’t contain harmful sugars, they still create eroding acids that wear away at tooth enamel. And while a dental sealants applied by your dentist in Frederick can seal crevices where decay sets in, you’re still not completely immune to the damaging effects of soft drinks. The only real solution is to forego them altogether.

Interestingly, HealthCanal.com recently published an article about a University of Adelaide study that suggested how soft drinks might need to include warning labels about the potential dangers of these drinks to teeth. The researchers stated that people need to understand how soft drinks can contribute to a wide range of dangerous dental effects and must be made aware of these risks before consuming them or giving them to children. They even proposed the solution of placing explicit warning labels on soft drink cans. This would likely come as welcome news to family dentistry experts, but may be more difficult for consumers to swallow.

“Tooth decay carries with it significant physical, social, and health implications, and we believe the risk of tooth decay should be included in any warnings relating to sweet drinks,” said one of the researchers from the study.

While the inclusion of warning labels is just a future possibility, you can be proactive about your own dental care today and start cutting back or cutting out these acid-packed drinks. Parents can also replace their child’s sodas with fluoridated water, milk, and other drinks that can improve the child’s dental health. You can also find an affordable dentist at Dental One Associates of Frederick to apply dental sealants for you and your children.

We all want to feel good about the health and appearance of our teeth, so it’s important to find an affordable dentist who will do everything to help preserve your dental health. Fortunately, one of the easiest ways to keep decay at bay is by kicking the soda can to the curb.
