What you choose to drink can have a direct effect on your teeth.
Picking beverages that contain high levels of sugar and acid, can be damaging to tooth enamel. Sipping on a high sugar/high acid drink all day can also create irreversible
changes to the enamel surface of the teeth.
Here's how the process works: Each time a beverage enters the oral cavity there is a chemical reaction. So, if you drink a soda, the sugar acid mixes with the bacteria
in your moutnh to create a reaction. The reaction statrs to breakdown the enamel layer of your teecht; severity damage is based on time. The longer the combined
acid/sugar/bacteria product stays on the enamel surface the risk for pentration through enamel wall increases. To stop or slow down this enamel breakdown, use a fluoride based
tootpaste and brush for 2 minutes. This action will help reduce the strong acidic PH of saliva to become more neutral. Selecting diet soda is just as harmful as regular soda.
The diet soda has replaced sugar molecules with an acid; diet soda drinks contains two acids.Diet soda drinks have twice the acid which alter the saliva to become more acidic. What beverage contains No acidic, No sugar, No calories-give up? the beverage is water.The best choice to pick is water. Water contains no harmful ingredients that will
alter the saliva composition, damage tooth enamel, or modify oral tissue. The next time you are thirsty, reach for the water to quench your thirst instead od sodas. Your oral
health will thank you.
