Soda and other soft drinks have lots of refined sugar.  Bacteria in the mouth process the sugar and produce acid.  This acid, plus the extra acid already present in the drink demineralizes your tooth enamel, the outer coating of the teeth that guards against decay.  Tooth decay (cavities) begins when enamel is weakened.  Each acid attack lasts about 20 minutes, and each sip you take resets the clock.  Even diet or "sugar free" drinks may not have sugar, but usually contain harmful acid.   Instead, choose water, limit soda to not more than 12 ounces a day and after having a soft drink brush your teeth or rinse your mouth with water.
