Maybe you know it as soda, or maybe even pop? However you may identify a sugary, carbonated drink they can cause serious oral health issues. Carbonated drinks also contain acid that eats away enamel, once enamel is gone it will not grow back. It has become one of the most effective sources of tooth decay. Targeting people of all ages. Some teenagers drink as many as 13 soft drinks daily and the average American up to 45 gallons a year!
Carbonated drinks can contain over 11 teaspoons of sugar per 12 oz can! You will be prone to have dental decay and dental erosion as you continue to drink soft drinks on a daily basis. Students who sip on soda all day while studying are prime targets for tooth decay. When soda is consumed over a long period of time your teeth are actually being bathed in acid!
What to do?
What are the triggers for sensitivity? Hot and cold drinks, even cold air can reach the tooth’s nerve and cause pain. Can you imagine that? Not being able to enjoy the food you love or even a specific kind of weather. We hope this information will help with your oral health, please feel free to ask us questions!
According to Wikipedia: “A wisdom tooth, in humans, is any of the usual four third molars. Wisdom teeth generally appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have fewer or more, in which case the extras are called supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted or “coming in sideways.” They are often extracted when this occurs.”
This is a perfect example of impacted wisdom teeth coming in sideways, on the other side you can see the two wisdom teeth coming in normally. Wisdom teeth do not serve any purpose and are located in the very back where it’s usually hard to reach and very crowded! If you’re experiencing pain because of this, it’s time to get rid of them!
