Seasonal Beverages Can Cause Tooth Decay

We all know that sugar can be a cause of tooth decay.  But some recent studies have shown that to be true even more with tooth decay rising at an alarming rate with sugar consumption. Seasonal beverages that contain pumpkin and spice and are very popular this time of year can be a huge source of extra sugar consumption.31213710-iced-coffee-with-straw-in-plastic-cup-for-take-aways  Many coffee shops all around have announced their delicious beverages, but you should be aware of the sugar content in many of these.

These warm, sweetened, coffee beverages may smell like pumpkin and even be the color of pumpkin, but unfortunately, in most cases the color and taste are a result of artificial flavoring and coloring. With fructose being the main ingredient in pumpkin spice syrup, these beverages are not a good choice if we are trying to keep our teeth free of cavities.

Dentists everywhere who are concerned about the increasing rates of tooth decay as a result of sugar consumption have warned that consumers should be wary of seasonal beverages like the pumpkin spice latte.  In most cases, they have very little positive nutritional value.
