Soda Vs. Teeth

Starting at a young age we are told "stay away from sugary drinks, they are bad for your teeth". As a kid, you probably thought "yeah right" and now you are wishing you had listened to your parents.

Did you know that citrus-flavored sodas are the worst for your teeth? with that being said...Mountain Dew is the worst type  and it can cause "mountain dew mouth"  if you drink enough of it. 

Mountain Dew mouth is said to mostly affect the Appalachia region of the United States due to the poverty levels. About 98% of the people who live in this region suffer from tooth decay before the age of 44.

If you are a Mountain Dew drinker, you should rinse your mouth out with water after every can, bottle or cup of Mountain Dew. Also, continue to brush and floss twice a day and see your dentist every 6 months for professional cleanings.
