Soda Spells Double Trouble

Custer dental financing

Soft drinks, soda, pop. No matter what you call it, it seems to currently be the dietary villain of choice. Today, we are going to give you yet another essential reason to avoid this ubiquitous drink.

For dental health, soda delivers a double punch of damage with two of its ingredients: sugar and phosphoric acid.

Sugar is detrimental to your teeth primarily because it softens enamel and makes the teeth more prone to cavities. This is especially harmful to little ones because their enamel is not fully developed.

Some people think that they can avoid problems because they elect diet soda. Unfortunately, the acids found in diet soda have basically the same detrimental softening effect on enamel.

Soda consumption can also result in teeth staining. If your teeth are already stained from soda or anything else, call 605-593-9821 to schedule a teeth whitening consultation.

Our recommendation is simple: stop drinking soda or dramatically reduce your soda intake to improve your dental health. Also, keep your babies away from soda as much as possible so that their teeth have the chance to mature healthily.

Can’t kick the habit? Try to drink water shortly after you have soda and brush more (but wait a half hour so the enamel isn’t brushed while it is soft).

We provide advanced general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry to the Custer area. If you have any questions about general or cosmetic dentistry, give us a call at 605-593-9821.

  • …I had no discomfort (with the laser). Yes, an awareness of ’something done’, but no pain what so ever! You did a good job Doc. If anyone wants to ask me, I’ll tell them. It’s time for the old Bard Parker blade to be relegated to the history file. Thank you for your skills.
    —Dr. Art L., M.D.
  • Congratulations on your beautiful Hi-tech office-and on your thirty years of working together! Also you need to know I appreciate the picture you sent me of my teeth. They are absolutely the best pictures I have ever taken. Thank you for the good service you provide.
