Some people like to spice up their water with dinner by ordering a sparkling water. It’s important to note that any drink with carbonation, including sparkling water, has a higher acid level.
According to research, sparkling water won’t destroy your teeth. Even though sparkling water is slightly more acidic than plain water, it’s all just water to your teeth.
Citrus-flavored waters often have a higher acid level which increases the risk of damage to your enamel. Plan on having just one glass instead of multiple so as not to expose your teeth to so much acid.
Water with fluoride helps fight cavities, washes away leftover food and even keeps your mouth from becoming dry.
Some sparkling water brands add sugar. Watch what you’re drinking because a sugar-sweetened beverage risks you developing cavities.
When in doubt, drink regular water.
