The Drinks That Put Your Teeth At Risk

Posted by:


In a recent study, it has been found that Australians consume a lot of soft drinks every year, about 100 litres. Furthermore, high consumption of soft drinks has been associated with the high prevalence of several health problems. This includes dental and oral health problems caused by dental erosion. Now, this concern does not only stem from the high sugar content of these beverages. Dental erosion is predominantly due to too much acidity in your mouth.

Acidity damages and erodes your tooth enamel which serves as the outermost protective layer of your teeth. As a consequence, you become more prone to other dental and oral health problems. Now, we at Chandler Road Family Dental Clinic do not want that to happen. Hence, we aim to inform you about the common drinks that pose a huge threat to your dental and oral health because of their acidity.

We at Chandler Road Family Dental Clinic are dedicated to helping you achieve optimal dental health and oral wellness. Your trusted Melbourne dentist can provide you and your entire family with top-notch modern dentistry that is well within your reach.

    Hey Dr. Dorai Kulandaivel, just been reading some of your articles and I like them a lot, the infographic is really eye catching and well made. Just another idea about reducing the impact of these drinks is to eat gum after consuming them or to wash your mouth out with water. Hope these ideas are useful to you and your patients.
