Is Sparkling Water Good For Your Oral Health?
Posted on 1/15/2020 by Dr. VanBrunt
By now, everyone knows the risks they put their dentition through if they take carbonated drinks. These drinks tend to be quite acidic, which makes it easy for the acids to eat into your enamel and wear it away. As an alternative, people have been switching to sparkling water, which is less acidic than carbonated beverages. Does the acidity in this water pose the same threat to your teeth? Sparkling Water Vs. Ordinary WaterUnlike ordinary water, sparkling water contains carbonation. Some varieties will have added minerals and salts, which alter the taste of the water. This is with the exception of natural sparkling water and seltzer water. There are also flavored varieties of sparkling water, which you typically will not find with water that comes out of the tap. How The Acidity Interacts With Your TeethSparkling water's acidity will barely do as much damage as that of other carbonated drinks. However, if you drink it excessively, it can lead to the progressive wear and tear of your enamel. The acids in the water will eat into your enamel, leaving you with sensitivity issues. Even worse, they encourage the activity of bacteria, leading to even more wear and tear of the teeth. The best alternative for water is to drink water than isn't carbonated. If you must drink sparkling water, consider rinsing your mouth afterward with ordinary water to wash away the acids. Also, concentrating on your dental hygiene will limit the effects of the sparkling water. It is important that you avoid brushing your teeth immediately after taking any acidic drink, let alone sparkling water, since brushing right after this can further weaken your enamel. Sparkling water is a great alternative to carbonated drinks, but that doesn't make it the best option for a healthy smile.
