Avid Soda Drinker? Quit It and Visit a Dallas, PA Dentist Immediately

A local Dallas, PA dentist would normally advise against cola consumption due to two of the most common substances present in such beverages: citric and phosphoric acids. Though concentrated in amounts not extremely potent during the first few servings of sodas, such acids are known to be more damaging to teeth than the sugar the drinks contain.

Citric acid is found in numerous fruits, giving them their characteristic sour taste. Very few are allergic to citric acid; enough reason why it’s extensively used in sodas, candies, and other food items. Also known as “sour salt,” citric acid is available almost everywhere—online, in grocery stores, etc.
