I was recently asked by a patient if artificial sweeteners cause tooth decay. My initial thoughts was no but I couldn’t give her a definitive answer. I’ve never been asked this before and honestly I never thought about it. The short answer is NO,(from what I could gather). While researching this I learned more than I bargained for about artificial sweeteners. For more about information you can follow the link below
