With the summer months ahead of us, many of us turn to flavored beverages to quench our thirst. The combination of acid and sugar is very damaging to our smile. These beverages can range from 2.00 to 5.00 in acid level. To give some perspective, water (which is neutral) is 7.00 and battery acid is 1.00. Then add the sugar on top of that with as much as 12 tsp per serving. As you can see, water is the best option to keep your body and smile healthy this summer.
