Safer Soda Drinking

We all know we shouldn’t drink too much soda. In addition to being chock-full of sugar, most sodas eat away at the protective enamel of our teeth, causing tooth decay. But we also know that many of our clients are hooked on the bubbly stuff. Here are a few pointers to share with clients who are always packing a can of Coke or Pepsi:

  • Always drink soda through a straw; this will reduce contact
    between the beverage and your teeth, especially if you position
    the straw toward the back of
    your mouth.
  • Swallow the drink without letting it linger too long inside your mouth; this will limit the amount of time your teeth are exposed to the sugar in the soda.
  • Don’t brush your teeth right after drinking a soda, as this can damage the enamel, which has already been weakened by the
    acids found in carbonated beverages.
