Is sugar free soda safe for my teeth?🦷
Most people today already know that sugar is bad for your teeth. So, bacteria in your mouth use sugar to form acid which causes cavities. But there is no sugar in sugar free soda, so why should I worry?!
Well, soda as well as “diet” sugar free soda is usually highly acidic. Acidic means low in pH. This weakens the enamel (which is the outer layer of your teeth) and makes them more vulnerable to cavities and dental erosion.
🦷 Finish your soda “quickly” or have it together with a meal.
🦷 Drink your soda or acidic beverage through a straw.
🦷 Rinse with water immediately after consumption of the drink.
🦷 Avoid brushing your teeth for at least 30 minutes after drinking any acidic beverage. - 4 minutes ago
