Which Types of Juice Are Bad for Your Teeth?

Posted on 10/25/2018 by Crossroads Family Dental
Which Types of Juice Are Bad for Your Teeth?We all know how important fruits and vegetables are for your body, so many people believe that juice is a good addition to any diet.

The problem is that certain juices are full of sugar that lead to unnecessary calorie consumption and problems with your teeth. By choosing the right beverage, you can get all of the health benefits without jeopardizing your oral health.

Avoid Citrus Juice

Citrus fruits are high in vitamin C, which is important for your immune system, but they are also highly-acidic. The acid in orange or grapefruit juice can wear away at your enamel via a process known as enamel erosion. If you do choose to drink citrus juice, make sure you rinse your mouth out with water afterward to clear the acid away from your teeth before it can do any damage.

Dark Juice May Stain

While grape, cherry, and other fruit juices may not be as acidic as orange juice, staining may pose a problem. These dark substances can tarnish the enamel, leading to unsightly stains and discolorations. Good oral hygiene and drinking this type of juice in moderation can help.

Vegetable Juice May Serve as a Good Alternative

Vegetable juices are becoming increasingly popular due to the health and dental benefits. Choose a juice that doesn't contain much fruit juice, as many store-bought options that claim to be vegetable juice often list “apple juice” as the first ingredient. Specifically, vegetable juice that contains green, leafy vegetables will contain calcium as well as vitamins to protect against gum disease.
