Is Sparking Water Putting You At Risk For Tooth Decay?

There is something about flavored fizzy water that makes you fell refreshed and energized all day but can it be damaging your teeth?

According to Mouth Healthy (brought to you by the American Dental Association also known as the ADA) sparkling water is generally fine for your teeth. Research showed that two forms of water (sparkling and plain) had the same effects on the teeth even though sparkling water is slightly more acidic.

Below are some tips on how to enjoy sparkling water without damaging your teeth:

  • If your in the mood for something fizzy, grab a sparkling water. This is far better for your teeth than a energy drink or a soda.  
  • Pay attention to whats in your sparkling water, added flavors such as citrus, have a higher than normal acidic level which can cause damage to your enamel. 
  • Sparking water brand that have added sugar can no longer be considered sparkling water because they can contribute to cavities. 
It doesn't matter how many sparkling waters you drink in a day its still important to drink regular water!
