How Tooth Decay Starts…
Sugar in soda pop combines with bacteria in
your mouth to form acid.
This acid, plus the extra acid from soft drinks, attacks the teeth.
Each acid attack lasts about 20 minutes, and acid attacks start over again with every sip.
Ongoing acid attacks weaken tooth enamel.
Cavities begin when tooth enamel is damaged.
Remember! Diet or sugar free pop still has acid that can harm your teeth.
Although fruit drinks aren’t carbonated like pop, they too have acid and sugar that can cause decay.
