Next time you head to a restaurant, take a look around and see what everyone is drinking. Chances are, you’re going to find a lot of people drinking soda. Soda is one of the most consumed beverages in the world. In fact, in the United States alone, statistics show that 50 to 80 percent of adolescents and nearly half of Americans of all ages drink at least one soda per day on average. Unfortunately, these many people don’t realize that soda is actually attacking their teeth, possibly compromising them to the point where treatment with dental implants will be required.

If you do happen to lose a tooth because you have consumed too much soda, rest assured that we will be able to restore your smile using dental implants. While we will first need to remove the infection or condition that cost you the missing tooth in the first place, we will eventually be able to provide you with beautiful replacement teeth that function just as well as your real teeth. If you would like to learn more, contact our office and schedule a no-obligation consultation with oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Ahmad Chaudhry today.
