Acid erosion: The acid and the sugar in soda is extremely destructive to teeth. You can have severe decay as well as acid erosion. This means that your teeth will dissolve before your eyes. Brushing alone is not enough to keep your teeth healthy. Stop the soda now. See a dentist for an exam to find out what shape your teeth are in.
