Mountain Dew vs Coca-Cola: Which Soda Is Worse For Your Teeth?

Posted in: Dentistry, by thecourtyardclinic, on 2nd September 2016 | 0 comments

Assorted Organic Craft Sodas with Cane Sugar

People should learn to brush their teeth immediately after consuming their favorite soda to limit the damage to their teeth. The following findings will surprise you.

Key takeaways:

  • Morning Dew contains a pH of 3.1 whereas Coca-Cola has a pH of 2.5. Coca-Cola is therefore six times more acidic than Mountain Dew.
  • Two molars were soaked in each soda for duration of 2 weeks and 5 days and observed for any changes.
  • The tooth soaked in Mountain Dew lost 14 percent of its mass while the Coca-Cola tooth lost 7 percent of its mass.

The video also explains why the organic citric acid in Mountain Dew does more damage to tooth enamel than the phosphoric acid in Coca-Cola.
