How your favourite sweet summer treats are rotting your teeth and ruining your smile

From the Daily Mail it is a good read for both patients and dentists.

With summer finally here there's nothing better than lying back and relaxing with a fruity cocktail, refreshing ice-lolly or creamy frappucino.  
But while these tasty treats may seem like a harmless indulgence, the harsh reality is that their high sugar content and acid levels could be seriously affecting your teeth.
Fruit-based cocktails for instance could damage the sensitive enamel around your teeth whilst a cold pint of cider, which contains up to five teaspoonfuls of sugar, will rot your gnashers.
