But it doesn’t contain any other ingredients and has no sugar so how can it be bad for my teeth?
This is probably the fact that any patients are most shocked and surprised about.
In order to make water fizzy we have to add CO2. Unfortunately our mouths react with this gas to produce carbonic acid. This is what gives the water a refreshing zingy taste.
It’s also what causes acid erosion however Acid erosion is the destruction and weakening of enamel due to repeated acid exposure. It can leave our teeth vulnerable to decay, fracture or sensitivity.
Our advice, stick to plain water but if you really fancy some of the sparkling kind every now and again please drink it with a straw (biodegradable straw) as it helps to bypass your teeth.
