A recent study carried about by King’s College London found that sipping fruit tea can increase your risk of dental erosion. Dental erosion is when healthy tooth structure is dissolved by acid in our food and drink. Frequent and excessive exposure to fizzy drinks, fruit flavoured water and alcohol removes the mineral content from your teeth, causing severe and irreversible damage. The outer surface of the teeth can become more vulnerable and worn, discoloured and sensitive making them weaker over time.
