diet soda erodes teeth as much as meth, crack: case study
SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
Posted: June 6, 2013
Drinking diet soda for years takes a toll on the teeth that’s comparable to years of smoking crystal meth or crack cocaine, according to a new case report from a dentistry journal.
The report, published in General Dentistry on May 28, shows an addiction to soda may do as much major damage to your smile as a drug habit, and sugar isn’t even the culprit.
Teeth are eroded when acid wears away tooth enamel, the glossy, protective layer of the tooth. Without this shield, teeth are more likely to develop cavities, become sensitive, develop cracks or become discolored.
If you do drink diet sodas or any sugared/acidic drinks, drink in moderation, keep you dental cleanings or JUST DRINK WATER!
