Dubai, United Arab Emirates. - Wednesday, October 28th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

Fizzy drinks can affect teeth in 2 main ways: caries (cavities) and acid erosion (tooth wear).

Food for thought: A 350ml can of fizzy soft drink typically contains 40 grams of sugar. That’s a whopping 10 teaspoons of sugar! Would you take the same amount of sugar in a mug of tea or coffee?

This sugar load is fermented by bacteria in the mouth to produce lactic acid as a byproduct.  Coupled with the phosphoric acid already present in fizzy drinks, this reduces the pH in the mouth which demineralises tooth enamel. Demineralisation is superficial dissolving of the surface enamel where minerals (mainly calcium) are removed from the hard tissues of the teeth. It is also the earliest stage of tooth decay.

In a normal setting, following a sugar load, saliva has a buffering effect and restores the pH close to neutral and remineralises the enamel.

However, repeated int ... Read more »
