Keep a Watchful Eye on Sugary Beverage Consumption
Date:1/9/2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Consumption of sugary beverages can do quite a number on your teeth. Did you know that some soft drinks contain as much as 11 teaspoons of sugar per serving and that most soft drinks also contain phosphoric and citric acids? Prolonged exposure to these acids can cause erosion, the loss of hard tissue from the tooth surface.

Every time you or your child eat or drink sugary substances, bacteria combine with the sugar to produce harmful acids, which attack the teeth for at least 20 minutes. After multiple attacks, teeth are susceptible to decay. If a dentist does not remove the decay and place a filling, decay can spread to the rest of the tooth.

There are steps being taken to try to reduce consumption of sugary beverages.
