Effects Of Soft Drinks On Teeth Experiment

Sugary drinks such as soft drinks constitute the essential link between obesity and dental wear among adults, according to a study published in the journal 'Clinical Oral Investigations' prepared by scientists at King's College London.

Specifically, they found that the increase in the consumption of sugary drinks could lead to erosion in the enamel and dentin of the denture. Thus, following the data of the National Survey on Health and Nutrition of the years 2003 and 2004, they analyzed a representative sample of the participants of this 3,541 patients in the United States.

They took into account the patient's body mass index, as well as their level of dental wear to perform the analysis. The intake of sugary drinks was recorded through two non-consecutive interviews for 24 hours in which patients were asked about their diet to include data on it over these two days.

   "It is the natural acid of some drinks such as carbonated and acidic fruit juices that leads to tooth wear," said research leader Saoirse O'Toole. In this regard, he explained that tooth wear is the main condition of the teeth, after tooth decay and gum disease, and the consumption of food and acidic beverages is the main cause. Patients with obesity also have other risk factors such as an increased likelihood of gastric reflux disease.

"This is an important message for patients with obesity who are consuming calories through sugary drinks. These drinks could be damaging your body and teeth." He pointed out O'Toole, who also warns that it is "an important message for dentists." "We should be asking our obese patients who have dental wear what calories they are taking, as this could have effects on their entire body equally, not just on their teeth," he said.

   Previous research from the same center found that tooth wear affects up to 30 percent of European adults. It is, therefore, premature tooth wear due to the softening of tooth enamel caused by gastric acids. This occurs when tooth enamel dissolves little by little, which can lead to changes in the shape or appearance of teeth that can also become more sensitive when the patient eats or drinks cold food and drinks.

It can also lead to something worse like total wear and tear on the dental structure, a process that occurs gradually. Erosion and severe dental wear reduce the quality of life and can lead to large costs, estimated at 30,000 pounds (about 34,800 euros) for each patient. It is important to note that this problem can be prevented since changing consumption habits can help stop it or slow its worsening.
