Soda pop consumption has increasingly become a factor in oral disease. Clinically, demineralization occurs, with erosion of tooth surfaces and caries being evident. The most severe effects are seen in people who drink several cans a day. Adolescents and young adults are particularly at risk as the biggest consumers of soda pop. Preventive therapies include dietary advice and the use of high-level fluoride dentifrices, professionally-applied topical fluorides and fluoride rinses.
