Dental Organizations Want Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Evaluated

Various dental organizations are asking for a U.S. Surgeon General’s report on the relationships between certain food and drink consumption and the impact on oral diseases.

The goal of the report is to pinpoint the specific results of sugar-sweetened beverages on oral health.

The report calls for soft drinks and soda to be thoroughly studied. Soft drinks and soda need to be distinguished from health beverages like juices and milk. The organizations also want to define natural sugars, added sugars, carbonation and the acidity levels in these types of drinks.

The dental issues that arise from sugary and acidic drinks are clear. But a Surgeon General’s report will bring this issue to the forefront of American health.

The organizations backing the report and signing the letter include the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Periodontology, American Association for Dental Research, American Association of Dental Consultants, American Association of Endodontists, American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Association of Public Health Dentistry, American Association of Women Dentists, American College of Prosthodontists, American Dental Education Association, American Dental Hygienists’ Association, American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists, Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors, Hispanic Dental Association and National Dental Association.
