The Impact Of Diet Fizzy Drinks On Your Teeth

14/01/2022

In a world where we all want to make small tweaks to our diets for the better but still enjoy some luxuries, many of us turn to diet fizzy drinks instead of full fat/sugar because it is insinuated that they are better for us – but are they?

With the help of careful advertising and misinformation, the general public would be none the wiser that diet fizzy drinks are just as bad as their full fat counterparts if they didn’t do their own research. Fizzy drinks should never replace water in your diet, as these carbonated beverages have no nutritional value and contain many ingredients that are harmful to your health if drank regularly.

The truth is, fizzy drinks are not good for your teeth as they contain nothing beneficial. Full fat/regular fizzy drinks usually contain around 45g of sugar per serving, but it isn’t just the sugar content that makes regular consumption worrying.

  • Diet drinks contain phosphoric and citric acids, which cause acid erosion and eat away at the enamel on your teeth. If you drink diet drinks regularly throughout the day, your teeth are constantly being attacked by the acid in the drinks
  • Carbonated drinks have been linked to bone loss. Bone loss causes loose teeth and eventually, tooth loss
  • Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose can cause headaches and weight gain if consumed in excess
  • By drinking fizzy drinks instead of water, you risk getting dehydrated which can cause an array of issues including: constipation, dry mouth, bad breath and gum disease

If you are concerned about how your fizzy drink habit has impacted your oral health, book an appointment with our Kettering dentists for judgement-free advice.
