Teeth pain is horrible and affect the human health, there are many ways to protect the teeth healthy like get away from the cold water and a good life habit to learn how clean the mouth , Drinking soft drink is harmful and bad for our teeth. People like to drink carbonated soft drink on the occasional and leisure life. The report shows that the average American consumers 45 gallons of drink per year. However, many people are no awareness how serious soft drink bad for the teeth.


Why the soft drink is bad for the healthy due to the large amounts of sugar-some contain over 11 teaspoons of sugar per 12 oz can! A 20 ounce bottle of Mountain Dew actually contains 19 teaspoons of sugar!! It’s not just the sugar content that is dangerous, however. Carbonated drinks also contain acids that eat away at the enamel of the teeth and make a person more prone to decay and dental enamel erosion. People like students who tend to sip on soda throughout the course of a day and/or night while studying are at extreme risk for dental decay. “Sip all day-get decay” refers to the fact that when soda is consumed over a long period of time, your teeth are actually being bathed in acid over an extended period of time. Not to mention the fact that sugar in the soda is also converted to acid by the bacteria in the mouth, so together, that’s a good recipe for dental destruction.


Though some people may think that diet carbonated sodas are better because they don’t contain sugar, they should know that diet sodas still contain the same acids that can do serious damage. People who think it’s safe to drink diet sodas throughout the day and between meals because they have no calories should know that the “Sip all day-get decay” scenario applies to them as well. It’s not just children or students who are at risk, but adults as well. If you must drink soda, it would be much better to limit it to once per day and drink it with a meal to reduce your exposure to sugar and acids. When finished eating, rinse your mouth with water first to neutralize the acids, then brush with fluoride toothpaste and rinse with water. Brushing your teeth in a high acid environment will erode tooth enamel.


Many people equate sports drinks with fitness, and assume that they must be a healthy choice when exercising or extremely thirsty. This may not be the best assumption to make. Like carbonated sodas, sports drinks also contain a high level of sugar. Gatorade and PowerAde, for example, contain as much as two-thirds the sugar in carbonated sodas.


Besides the damage caused to teeth from sugar, sports drinks, lemonade, energy drinks, fitness water and iced tea can actually cause irreversible damage (erosion) to dental enamel due to organic acids and additives contained in the sports drinks. Enamel is the thin, outer layer of hard tissue that helps maintain the tooth structure and shape, while protecting it from decay. The organic acids are very erosive to the dental enamel because they actually break down calcium, which is necessary to strengthen teeth and prevent gum disease. Studies have revealed that enamel damage caused by non-carbonated drinks and sports drinks was three to eleven times greater than carbonated sodas. Energy drinks and bottled lemonades were shown to cause the most harm to dental enamel.


When extremely thirsty, the best thing you could do is to drink regular water. When you are thirsty or dehydrated, your saliva level is lower than usual. Your saliva helps to naturally neutralize the acids in your mouth, therefore helping to reduce decay. If you are extremely thirsty and drink a sports drink, soda or bottled lemonade that is high in sugar and acid, your teeth are at a much greater risk for decay. If you feel thirsty and dry in your mouth, the soft drink is not the best choice. The food scandal and dental problems is the biggest problems for you.
