Acid Drinks Blamed for Increase in Tooth Erosion

Dental erosion refers to the loss of the tooth enamel – and is a serious problem for the health of your teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • Tooth erosion has been on the rise as people consume lots of acidic drinks. Acid corrodes tooth enamel making it thin.
  • Drinks such as soft drinks, fruit juices, sports drinks, and teas contain high amounts of acids.
  • These drinks also contain high amounts of sugar that combine with plaque bacteria to produce acids that attack tooth enamel.

In soft drinks, especially in cola soft drinks, one of the main flavoring agents is phosphoric acid. That’s the acid we use in dentistry to roughen tooth enamel before applying a bonding agent. We use it like sandpaper.
