Firstly most beverages use CO2 as the "fizz" and it is dissolved into the drink by the process of carbonation. When high pressure is used to force the co2 into the drink and once the pressure is released the co2 returns to its gaseous state, this process causes the drink to become more acidic but the drink wont really do much harm when drunk in moderation. But if not drunk in moderation the fact that the  process has made the drink more acid will deter-ate your teeth among other things that the sugar content and acidity will do.
