Does rinsing your mouth with water immediately after drinking soda pop clean all its sugar residue off the teeth?
Yes, except: If your teeth have unremoved bacterial plaque (for example, not flossing to remove bacteria between teeth) the sugars in the soda can "feed" the bacteria, causing the sugars to be converted into acids. So you can't skip cleaning steps and expect simply rinsing with water to be a cure-all. ...Read more
