Lemonade is an acidic and sugary drink. When you consume too much lemonade, it can negatively affect your teeth. Here are some issues caused by excessive lemonade consumption:
Bacteria, sugar, and acid can all cause cavities, and all these are present in lemons; therefore, drinking too much lemonade can increase your risk of cavities. It is better to drink water that is infused with slices of lemon.
Eroded Tooth Enamel
The acidic content of lemon can penetrate your tooth enamel. This can cause the tooth enamel to erode, which can lead to your teeth looking yellowish. Your teeth may appear unclean and not be able to retain your pearly whites.
Consumption of too much acid can cause sensitivity. After you drink or eat anything acidic, minerals are stripped from your teeth. Over time, this can cause your teeth to erode, leading to increased sensitivity. You may even find it difficult to chew your food correctly.
Try to limit your lemonade consumption to a moderate level to reduce the risk of any dental issues. Most importantly, don’t brush your teeth soon after drinking lemonade; wait at least 30-40 minutes before brushing your teeth.
