Soft drinks, colas and soda drinks are routine intake. People like to have canned drinks as they are easy to carry and use. But, when you drink from can your teeth take a bath of that drink. This prolonged contact, rather full bath, of teeth in soda is dangerous.

Use of Straw

Not Good…

Studies show that the persons who drink directly from can, bottle or glass they have tooth decay mostly in their back molars. Tooth decay was found severe in front teeth for persons who used straw positioned at front of mouth. In this case, front teeth are first and most contact area, so they are badly affected.


Best choice is to sip soda, soft drinks or other beverages with the help of a straw. Straw should be positioned towards the back of the mouth such that drink has lowest possible contact with teeth.
