When it comes to your smile, what you choose to drink matters. While soft drinks are incredibly popular in America to accompany most meals, they are horrible for your teeth. Not only do soft drinks contain phosphoric acid, which can lead to tooth enamel erosion, but soft drinks also contain high quantities of sugar.

Sugar is your teeth’s worst enemy. Sugar lingers in the mouth, and when your teeth are coated in sugary beverages on a consistent basis, your teeth are under constant assault. Oral bacteria are present inside your mouth every day. These bacteria are meant to help rid your mouth of particles left behind after you eat and drink. Most of the time, these oral bacteria are beneficial. However, when they find the presence of sugar, they can become quite damaging in a very short span of time.

Oral bacteria are most attracted to sugar; therefore, they will assemble around sugar particles in vast quantities. As these bacteria go to work to break down sugary particles, they begin to produce acids to assist them. It is these acids that cause damage to the teeth. The acids produced by oral bacteria are the number one cause of cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. If you are regularly drinking sugary beverages, then your teeth are under constant assault from damaging, acid-producing oral bacteria.

Protecting your teeth from sugar requires more than just staying away from soft drinks. Juice and sports drinks also have high amounts of sugar, and they can cause the same amount of damage to your smile. Water is your best option. Not only does water flush out your bodily systems, but it helps to rinse the mouth before oral bacteria can damage your teeth. If you find that you cannot resist a soft drink with your hamburger, fries, or pizza, please take the time to brush your teeth and rinse your mouth after you finish your meal. Don’t leave your teeth coated in sugar and vulnerable to decay.

At Engineered Smiles, we want to encourage you to make the healthiest choices that will promote optimal oral health. Your smile is one of your greatest assets – take care of it!

Jennifer W.

Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

Jean R.

Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

Sanjay P.

I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

Margo W.

I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
