Fruit juice could be destroying your teeth
It's billed as a healthy drink, but is fruit juice destroying our teeth?
So you started the New Year with a health kick, and the first thing on your shopping list was fruit juice. It’s healthy option, right? Not necessarily, if the latest research is anything to go by.
Studies carried out in the U.S found that the sugar and acid infruitjuice can attack teeth enamel, causing even more damage than some of the controversial home whitening treatments.
What’s more, the problem can often be made worse by brushing teeth immediately afterwards as teeth enamel is softened for up to an hour after drinking acidicjuices, making it vulnerable to damage.
‘Theacidin orange juice is so strong that thetoothis literally washed away,’ says the study leader YanFang Ren, and associate professor in the department of dentistry at the University of Rochester. ‘It’s potentially a very serious problem for those who drink fruit juice and fizzy drinks every day.’
There are several causes for teetherosion, including acid reflux, when natural acids flow up the mouth and sometimes eroding the back teeth, and aggressive brushing.
