Soda side effects: A woman from Michigan loses all of her top teeth, says her decade long soda addiction played a large part.

Victoria Irene Nowakowski warns others about the importance of dental health after her own teeth decayed to yellow nubs after years of smoking and drinking soda every day. In a series of TikTok videos, Nowakowski stated that “Dental hygiene is really and extremely important.”

Nowakowski revealed that she was told in 2017 that she would need to replace her top row of teeth with dentures. She stated that the reason for the severe decay was “lack of dental hygiene, not going to the dentist and the soda drinking”. Nowakowski stated she had been drinking soda on a daily basis for 10 years and began smoking around 4 to 5 years ago. “I’ve been drinking Coca-Cola, dark soda, for like the last 10 years, every single day all day. I started smoking cigarettes four to five years ago,” she said.

Nowakowski admitted that she didn’t take of her teeth during her high school years. “I did not brush them or floss them, and obviously had a big part on them decaying,” she said. She stated her teeth appeared normal for years but in reality, it wasn’t fine. It became “a perfect home for that bacteria in my teeth.”

It took Nowakowski years to go through the process of getting dentures, even after it became apparent that her teeth were rotting. She was terrified of going to the dentist and getting her teeth removed. She stated that “It took a really long time to get the courage up to do it.”
