Prolific soda drinker needs help!

Is there anything wrong with brushing my teeth immediately after drinking a soda?


  • I was brushing right after drinking my soda because I thought I was doing a good
    thing, getting rid of the sugar. Turns out the acid in the soda was being
    pushed down into the teeth by brushing! And where there is acid there is risk
    of enamel erosion. You’re supposed to wait a half hour or so.
