    YUM.

    I get regular checkups and there is little sign of problems developing in the future either. Not everyone is affected by things equally.

    Acid erosion of your teeth is inevitable if you keep it up.

    It takes years and years, but it is inevitable if you keep at it

    I'm 35 and have never had a single cavity in my life. I'm not really concerned about my teeth.

    Acid erosion can take decades to manifest and is different than run of the mill cavities.

    Acid in the mouth (caused by the contact of acidic drinks with the tooth, and creation of an acidic chemistry in the mouth from the over-consumption of acidic drinks) causes a weakening of chemicals bonds that keep the enamel from falling off your teeth. AFAIK, there is no test that can detect this weakening of the enamel. What happens, is that once the enamel is sufficiently weakened, it starts falling off all at once. One month, your teeth look fine, Then, all of a sudden, the enamel starts dissolving off of multiple teeth, unsually at or near the gumline



    It's possible that you have some oddly base chemistry in your mouth, but I wouldn't bet your purty smile on it

    We should just be government issued dentures at 16 so that we don't ever have to worry about acid erosion.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    He shouldn't have just banned 32oz drinks. How does one expect that to make any difference when people can use free refills or buy two 16oz drinks?

    Instead of only partially fixing the problem he should build on this law.
