Saved by a Straw? Sipping Soda Reduces Decay Risk

Chapter: Drinking Tips to Protect Enamel


  • Reduce your soda consumption.
  • Don't leave fluids in your mouth when sipping.
  • Don't drink soda before going to bed.
  • Don't brush immediately after drinking soda (it will harm the weakened enamel).
  • When brushing, brush in a circular motion (horizontal brushing can wear away at the weakened enamel).
  • If you have dry mouth, try to avoid carbonated beverages.
