When you eat anything with sugar, it activates bacteria to make acid which cause cavities in your teeth. So big exposure to sugar can cause tooth decay.

Hi Vu Le, I agree with you that sugar plays a harmful role in tooth decay. Regular and ‘diet' soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks, fruit juices, fruit drinks and cordials also have high acid levels that can cause tooth erosion. Prevention of enamel loss is very important for the long term health of your teeth. It is important to protect your teeth by using fluoride toothpaste. Also, after drinking sugary or acidic beverages, don't brush your teeth right away. Wait at least one hour so your teeth can recover and your enamel can reharden before you take the brush to them. Most important is to keep your dental check-ups close together to catch cavities while they are still small.
