What was once an occasional treat for a birthday or Christmas has become part of our daily diet. The consumption of drinks containing much sugar is being promoted everywhere. Our brain who needs sugar for it’s function is programmed to always leave you wanting more. But the content of soft drinks like Cola where a singe can of Cola has more than 10 teaspoons of sugar is damaging to your teeth .
The combined effect of the acids and the sugar leads to rapid depletion of calcium from the tooth surface. The acids soften and roughen the surface of the tooth by taking away the calcium and the sugars provide the energy and the adhesion to the bacteria to attach themselves to the tooth surface. The final outcome are white lesions and holes in the teeth.
