Acidic Beverages and Your Teeth
Drinking too many drinks that are acidic can be damaging to your teeth. With so many drink choices it can be hard to determine which ones are good for you. You may be saying, “I’m ok I drink flavored water”. The truth is flavored water can be just as harmful as drinking soda or juices. To determine the acidity, we need to look at the pH, the lower the pH, the more acidic, and the likelier to cause harm and tooth erosion. The American Dental Association recommends minimizing the amount of these drinks we consume, instead the best drink would be plain water. When that thirst kicks in, think healthy teeth and reach for some refreshing water!
