You know how a lot of the things that taste great aren’t really all that good for you? Well, unfortunately, soda falls on that list too. Aside from the myriad of other health problems too much soda can cause, it does an absolute number on your teeth.

Our experienced dental team at Complete Dental Care in Dennison, Ohio consistently sees oral health problems related directly to too drinking too much soda. The only way to get people to stop is to help them understand just how much soda negatively impacts their oral health.

Let’s take a look at that.

Weakened enamel
The biggest thing soda does to your teeth is weakening your enamel. That’s the hard outer layer of your teeth that protects against infection, and protects the pulp – the living bundle of nerves and blood vessels – from harm. With weakened enamel, you’re more prone to get a cavity, abscess, or develop an infection requiring a root canal to fix.

Stained teeth
Admit it – we all want a dazzling white smile. Something about it just lends an air of confidence that we’d otherwise have a hard time finding. The problem with soda is that it’ll stain your teeth a light brown – especially if you drink darker colas. These stains are really hard to remove, and can negatively impact your overall appearance.

Soda does a number on your teeth, and we want to do all we can to help you have the best smile possible. Get in touch with us today at 740-229-4180.
