Frequent Consumption Of Acidic Beverages May Damage Teeth

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (1/29, Krieger) discusses how flavored waters and other acidic beverages may affect dental health. The article states “a beverage’s pH is the main determinant of its potential to erode teeth,” adding that “the lower the pH, the more acidic a drink is, and the more harmful.” Frequent consumption of acidic beverages “can be dangerous to our teeth,” said Dr. Edmond R. Hewlett, a spokesperson for the American Dental Association and professor at the UCLA School of Dentistry. “The problem is when people drink these beverages instead of plain water as their main hydration.” Dr. Hewlett recommended minimizing the time acidic beverages are in contact with teeth and drinking plain fluoridated water throughout the day. “The best beverage you can drink is plain fluoridated water,” he said.

Despite Activated Charcoal Trend, No Evidence It Is Safe, Effective For Teeth

Business Insider (1/16, Glassman) reports that activated charcoal, which hospital emergency rooms often use “to treat drug overdoses and poisoning,” is “becoming a hot new wellness trend” with touted benefits ranging from whiter teeth to clearer skin. Still, not all of the claims are true. The article notes that concerning charcoal use to whiten teeth, a literature review published in The Journal of the American Dental Association stated, “Dental clinicians should advise their patients to be cautious when using charcoal and charcoal-based dentifrices with unproven claims of efficacy and safety.”
