How willing are you to do the hard work required to have great teeth? There’s more to it than just brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. In fact, having great teeth means that you’re acutely aware of all the different aspects of your oral health.

One aspect that’s often overlooked, though, is soda consumption. Dr. Thomas Sims has been in dentistry for a while and has seen firsthand what too much soda can do to your teeth. That’s why the team at Centre for Progressive Dentistry in Scottsdale, Arizona wants to share these tips with you. We’ll help you have better teeth by consuming less soda.

Weakened enamel
The biggest thing soda does to your teeth is weakening your enamel. That’s the hard outer layer of your teeth that protects against infection, and protects the pulp – the living bundle of nerves and blood vessels – from harm. With weakened enamel, you’re more prone to get a cavity, abscess, or develop an infection requiring a root canal to fix.

Stained teeth
Admit it – we all want a dazzling white smile. Something about it just lends an air of confidence that we’d otherwise have a hard time finding. The problem with soda is that it’ll stain your teeth a light brown – especially if you drink darker colas. These stains are really hard to remove, and can negatively impact your overall appearance.

Soda does a number on your teeth, and we want to do all we can to help you have the best smile possible. Get in touch with us today at 480-374-8557.
