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

    A recent small study reveals that drinking soda may cause serious dental damage to your teeth.

    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.
