MESA, Ariz. - March 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Dental Deal is an online network of dental practitioners that offer daily dental deals to those in need of a fast and effortless appointments.  Dental Deal has dentists in all 50 states, and in most major cities.  Appointments can be made for general cleaning and any specialty needs as well.  Making an appointment is as easy as visiting the site, completing an area search, picking a dentist, and scheduling a time.  To help educate folks on the causes of tooth decay, Dental Deal released a health message about the dangers of soda.  Here is the full article:

Soft Drink consumption is one of the leading factors of tooth decay as well as many other diverse health issues.  The amount of soda consumed in a year reaches the multi-billion gallon mark, apparently averaging out to a soda-a-day for every single person on the planet.  There is also indication the quantity of soda, that adults and children drink on a day-to-day basis, has grown at an incredibly steep rate in the last 15 years, which will likely to continue.

What is so harmful about soda? Exposure to its high acidity content.  Acid is present in every single type of soft drink (including diet and carbonation free drinks), but is effectively doubled with soda that contains sugar.  Sugar interacts with the bacteria in your mouth to create acid, eating away at the enamel of your teeth.  This is significant because enamel is the protective covering, and once it is worn away cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss ensues.  To give you an idea of how much acid is actually in soda, here are a few acidic concentrations(the lower the number the higher the acidic content):

battery acid - 1Ph

Coke - 2Ph

Pepsi - 2.3Ph

milk - 6.8Ph

water - 0Ph

The dangers to your health even go way beyond your teeth.  Soda is suspected to have a role in the gradual increase of obesity in the United States.  It also increases the risk of diabetes and issues resulting from weak bones.  Even with all of these negative effects, soda does not appear like it will lose popularity.  Knowing these potential dangers, however; should encourage you to at least practice pristine dental habits like brushing twice a day, flossing, etc.  Remember to see your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings, and to check up on the condition of your teeth.
