  1. Diet and regular sodas erode the protective, calcium-based enamel barrier on your teeth by lowering the pH level in your mouth. The addition of phosphoric and citric acids to sodas is the major contributor to this increase in acidity. Artificial and natural sweeteners also contribute because they serve as food for lactic acid-producing bacteria. Other acids, present in trace amounts, further add to the ability of diet and regular sodas to erode the enamel coating your teeth.Nowadays many clinics are coming up with dental hygiene and sanitation awareness for people to keep their mouth clean.
