Dental Care and Soda
When it comes to added sugar candy is not the only culprit. Many sodas have up to 11 teaspoons of sugar per serving. In addition sodas also contain phosphoric and citric acids, which eat away at tooth enamel. You are not all that much saver with diet soda either. Diet soda lets you skip the sugar, but they may have even more acid in the form of the artificial sweeteners.
You do not have to stop drinking these types of drinks all together, however try limiting the amount you drink. Also rinse your mouth out with water after having these types of drinks whenever possible. Another good tip is do not sip soda though out the day. If you are going to drink soda and or diet soda then drink it with a meal.
