Soda and Illegal Drugs Cause Similar Damage to Teeth

Addicted to soda? You may be shocked to learn that drinking
large quantities of your favorite carbonated soda could be as damaging to your teeth as
methamphetamine and crack cocaine use. The consumption of illegal drugs and abusive intake of
soda can cause similar damage to your mouth through the process of tooth erosion, according to
a case study published in the March/April 2013 issue of General Dentistry, the peer-reviewed
clinical journal of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD).
