M’sLifers sering minum dengan menggunakan sedotan? Ternyata minum menggunakan sedotan bisa membawa pengaruh yang kurang baik bagi kesehatan, salah satunya adalah rusaknya gigi bila salah menggunakannya.

Menurut Mark Burhenne, DDS, cosmetic dentist yang juga pendiri AsktheDentist.com, meskipun minum lewat sedotan, kita tetap bisa merasakan minuman itu menyentuh gigi. Hal ini disebabkan kebanyakan orang menyelipkan ujung sedotan di antara bibir dan di depan gigi, sehingga efek minuman manis yang merusak gigi masih bisa terasa.

“Orang yang menahan sedotan di antara gigi, bagian belakang giginya masih terpapar. Ingat, lidah itu terus bersentuhan dengan gigi, jadi jika ada soda atau kopi menyentuh lidah, artinya juga mengenai gigi. Ketika mencicipi minuman, gigi pasti sudah terpapar,” ungkapnya.

Satu-satunya cara untuk melindungi gigi adalah dengan menaruh ujung sedotan di bagian belakang mulut, di balik gigi dan lidah, sehingga cairan akan berpindah dari gelas langsung ke belakang kerongkongan tanpa menyentuh gigi.

You often drink using a straw? It turns drinking through a straw can bring adverse effects to health, one of which is the destruction of tooth if you misuse it.

According to Mark Burhenne, DDS, cosmetic dentist who is also the founder of AsktheDentist.com, although drinking through a straw, we still can feel it touch your teeth drink. This is due to most people at the end of the straw slipped between the lips and teeth in the front, so that the effect of sweet drinks that damage your teeth can still be felt.

“People who hold a straw in between the teeth, the back teeth are exposed. Remember, the tongue was kept in contact with the teeth, so if there are tongues touched soda or coffee, that is also in the teeth. When you taste the drink, teeth must have been exposed, “he said.

The only way to protect your teeth is to put the end of the straw on the back of the mouth, behind the teeth and tongue, so that the liquid will move from the glass directly to the back of the throat without touching the teeth.
