Watch What You Drink!

Whether you call it pop or soda this soft drink is in every store and served in every restaurant, but is it good for your teeth?




Soft drinks have been found to be one of the most significant sources of tooth decay. Acids and acidic sugar in soda soften tooth enamel which contributes to cavities. There are diet options for sodas with less sugar, but they can still be harmful to your teeth.

Eliminating soda from your diet can be very healthy for you and a great alternative to drinking soda is juicing. Juicing is when the liquids, vitamins, and minerals are extracted from raw fruits and vegetables, this process strips away any solid matter from the fruits and vegetables and you're left with liquid only. Drinking fresh juices is not only good for your overall health but your teeth as well. There are specific ingredients that can help keep your teeth looking great. 

Those ingredients are:

Leafy greens

Veggies


Cranberries

Wheat grass




A healthy diet along with great oral hygiene habits is a recipe for good oral health. For more oral health tips please visit Dr. Poser's site poserortho.com/hygiene.
