How bad is Mountain Dew for your mouth?
I always hear people saying "Mountain Dew mouth", about how people's teeth and mouth get all messed up from drinking mountain dew on a regular basis. Is it really that much worse than other soda brands? And if so what makes it damage your mouth so much?

It is more acidic than any other soda/pop brands, contains the most sugar, and one can of it can give you a cavity in a half hour. It stays in between the teeth, where a toothbrush doesn't reach, and sometimes by the time one would floss, the acid has already affected the enamel. Mountain Dew is a 2 on the pH scale, 2.2 is as acidic as stomach acid and mountain dew is worse that stomach acid. Hopefully this explains it well.

pH scale 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the most basic or non acidic.

In 43 years of practicing dentistry, I have see people without a cavity, come in for their 6 month check up and have gotten a dozen cavities, usually at the gum line. Mountain Dew gives you a dose of not only sugar, but also citric acid. And people who are constantly drinking it will destroy their teeth. If it were up to me. I'd take it off the market. That's how bad it is.
