What Are Acidic Beverages Doing To Your Teeth?
Dental enamel is the hardest and most mineralized substance in the body; even more dense than bone. It is made up of a highly complex lattice work composed of minerals. The enamel’s lattice work can be weakened by acidic foods, beverages and the acids from gastric reflux. When the enamel is weakened, it becomes soft and a cavity can develop.
The more frequent that acidic beverages, food and acids from gastric reflux are in the mouth, the quicker the enamel softens and thins, resulting in the loss of its luster and shine. Unfortunately for our teeth, soft drinks, energy drinks and sports drinks have become staples in our diet and the majority of these beverages are very acidic and will damage the teeth over time.
