Acidic Drinks can damage teeth within 30 Seconds of Consumption

A new study published by the Journal of Dentistry, July 2014, found that “within 30 seconds of drinking an acidic drink, lifelong damage happens in the form of dental erosion when it combines with tooth grinding and reflux”.

One 20 ounce can of soda contains 16 teaspoons of sugar while a 32 ounce sports drink may contain up to 14 teaspoons of sugar!

Word of advice- drink water. Not only will it hydrate you, but it will hydrate your mouth and help push away the harmful bacteria that causes tooth decay.
