Did you know that just 1 12oz can of soda contains between 10 & 12 teaspoons of sugar, and that a sports drink contains even more sugar than a soda does. Both soda and sports drinks can cause enamel damage to your teeth. Soda only takes 20 minutes for it to start disolving tooth enamel. Continuous sipping of both drinks continually bathes teeth in sugar, which is a perfect breeding ground for plaque.Heavy consumption of soda and sports drinks is linked to tooth decay.
