You often hear about the foods that are harmful to your oral health because of their sugar content, but did you know that your beverage choice could be even more harmful to your oral health? When you are eating, especially during a mealtime, you start eating your food and finish in a certain amount of time, unless you are a grazer. The difference with a drink is that you can nurse one for hours. Each time you take a drink, you are introducing new bacteria into your mouth. These bacteria cling to your teeth, increasing the likelihood of developing decay.
