Did you know...
Some acids in fizzy drinks can attack tooth enamel, which causes teeth to weaken and become more cavity-prone. If you can't give them up, try following these tips to protect your teeth from the harmful effects of fizzy drinks:
1. Drink through a straw can help to minimize contact with your teeth.
2. Rinse with water after drinking to wash away any lingering sugar or acid.
3. Wait a while before brushing your teeth after drinking to reduce risk of acid-erosion.

"Do you sometimes brush your teeth straight after eating? 
It's recommended to wait at least an hour. Since food produces plaque acids that weaken the tooth enamel, brushing at the right moment wears away the weakened enamel, and protect your teeth even stronger."
