Does Sparkling Water Damage Your Oral Health?

Sparkling Water Cameo Dental Specialists IL 60305When it comes to some of the weirdest things out there that are bad for your teeth, it's hard to believe that some of them are bad for you. Sparkling water was one of those things to think about.

This is something that may just have a bad reputation when it comes to visiting the dentist and letting them know you love drinking it.

The Hidden Dangers of Sparkling Water

Even though it is water and there are no sugars or additives added in it to make it sweet and tasty, the chemical reaction that comes from the CO2 that is put in it to make it fizzy is something that can be worrisome on the teeth. This is because sparkling water has the same chemical reaction inside the mouth that soda would have.

When you drink the product, it pops and fizzes in the mouth and then the chemical that makes it fizz also makes it break down the enamel on the outside of the teeth. This is not a good thing to think about and it is not something you want to continue to do and drink since this can lead to long term dental problems, just like soda would.

Drinking this drink every day and having it in your mouth is the most dangerous type of dental wear and tear you can do. Skip the carbonation and go with plain water instead.
