So exactly why is sugar bad for your teeth? In a nutshell what happens is that the bacteria in your mouth use sugar from foods and drinks to produce acids that dissolve and damage your teeth. The more sugar residue left in your mouth, the more bacteria, the more acid. Soft drinks, fruit juices and other sweetened drinks also tend to have high acid levels that attack the outer surface of tooth enamel. So if you’re going to eat sugar, soft drinks, candies, do it in moderation and help save your teeth!
