Are Your Teeth Healthier if You Drink Lots of Juice?

Posted on 11/16/2020 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Are Your Teeth Healthier if You Drink Lots of Juice?Drinking lots of juice does not necessarily mean that you are on the right track to better health. Any juice-whether natural or processed-has many ingredients that can negatively impact your oral health. Most of those ingredients include a wide range of minerals and other compounds that have higher levels of toxic elements. These elements are likely to affect your dental health in the future if you don't observe proper dental hygiene.

Drinking Lots of Juice is Not Good for Your Teeth

Most types of juices have a higher concentration of sugar compared to fruits in their natural state. This type of sugar fuels oral bacteria to create acid that affects your dental structure. The acid erodes the protective layer (tooth enamel) of your teeth, causing cavities and tooth decay after some time. 

On the other hand, the juice may nestle in between the teeth, gum line, and vulnerable grooves in your mouth. When acid and bacteria accumulate in such areas, they can cause gum disease, which may affect your oral health. Plus, when drinking the juice, you are unconsciously giving up solid foods that also stops you from chewing. And chewing food is a saliva producing function that plays a critical role in washing away food particles from your teeth and mouth. Lack of chewing can make sugars and acids in juices to stay on your teeth and trigger tooth sensitivity or enamel erosion. 

How to Keep Your Teeth Healthier After Drinking Juice

You need juice in the same way you need other foods. So if you are going to take some juice, you need to find a way to keep your teeth healthy. That said, you should consider drinking rather than sipping any drink you come across to reduce prolonged exposure to sugars. Also, use a clean straw to prevent the juice from getting into contact with your teeth. Drink plenty of water to wash away juice sugars from the mouth. Don't forget to brush your teeth an hour after drinking juice. For more information on how to keep your teeth healthier, call us or visit our office.
