Whether you call it “pop” or “soda” … it can be causing you harm!

•Many products which we use daily can be harmful to teeth
–Soft drinks
–Sports drinks
–Herbal teas
These products wear down enamel, leaving teeth brittle and sensitive
  • In fact, just one can of Coca Cola  contains 39g of sugar – that’s 10 cubes  or 11  teaspoons in just one can
  • It is also becoming more common for products to contain dangerous acids which erode teeth and increase the likelihood of decay

  • Diet soda isn’t safe either it contains its own acid.
  • With all sodas, the more you are exposed to acid, the greater the risk of damage to  your    teeth
  • Each acid attack lasts about 20 minutes, and begins again with every sip you take.    Repeated acid attacks eat away your tooth enamel
  • Cavities start when sugars and acids damage the enamel- and your teeth begin to rot  away.
