Hidden Acids in Some of Your Favorite Drinks

Posted on 7/12/2021 by Office
Acids are in everything we eat and drink, but some foods and drinks are worse than others for our dental health.

Further, we can set a timer, and after 30 minutes, we can brush our teeth to help remove the sugars and acids which might still be in them. There are a lot of hidden acids in the world we live in; if you'd like some guidance or have dental questions, give our office a call....
