The British Dental Journal published that researchers from King’s College London determined “the risk of moderate or severe tooth erosion was 11 times higher for adults who drank acidic beverages twice daily, particularly when they were consumed between meals, compared with those who consumed such beverages less frequently.” On the other hand, “when acidic drinks were consumed with meals, the risk of tooth erosion was slashed by half.” The researchers also found “that the risk of tooth erosion is increased when we sip drinks, as well as when we swish, hold, or rinse them in the mouth before swallowing.”
