FACT: LEMONADE IS MORE ACIDIC THAN COCACOLA.
Our teeth can be worn down by acidic drinks. This kind of tooth wear is called dental erosion. These acids can come from within the body (intrinsic) and from outside the body (extrinsic). From inside the body, acids may come from excessive vomiting or acid reflux common in people with heart burn. From outside the body, acids mainly come from our diet in the form of soft drinks i.e. carbonated sodas (coca cola is top of the list here) and energy drinks, lemonade, orange juice, etc.
So how can you control this kind of tooth wear?
