I have been told that I should drink nothing but milk and water because it's causing dental problems. I asked if fruit juices were any better and my dentist said no. I don't think I can drink nothing but milk and water. For some weird reason I always need a taste in my mouth. But I can't think of a sweet drink other than fruit juices, milkshakes and fizzy drinks. I apparently can't have any of these. Is my dentist going a bit too far by saying no sweet stuff at all? It seems ridiculous of the dentist to say this because almost every food and drink contains either sweeteners or sugar.
You will be fine drinking them in moderation- but not all the time. As I'm sure you are aware of the risks on your health and especially your teeth. A couple of times a week will be fine as long as you clean your teeth twice/ three times a day. You could also trying drinking from a straw, this minimises the contact with the teeth and therefore damage.
I would think that Diet soft drinks which don't contain sugar would be okay. Also, avoid too much of sticky foods as they hold the sugar to your teeth longer.
Simply a Rose to brighten your day,
And maybe lessen the cares in your way;
And also, too, to help you to know,
That in knowing you, many others grow!
You can have it - in moderation. He means don't drink fruit juice or sugar drinks all day. One a day is plenty.
