TEETH VS SODA



What soda does to your teeth



48% of Americans drink soda daily

2.6 glasses/day

That's nearly 45 gallons of soda per year



Soda is the LARGEST dietary source of sugar among children and addolescents

Coca Cola 12 oz can Sugars, total: 39g

Mountain Dew 20 bottle Sugars, total: 77g



BUT IT'S NOT THE SUGAR CONTENT THAT'S BAD FOR YOUR TEETH

DIET SODAS CAN BE JUST AS BAD FOR YOUR TEETH AS REGULAR SODAS



IT'S THE ACIDITY
