You probably already know that sodas and bottled fruit juice can damage teeth. More precisely make teeth easier porous. In addition to two drinks, vitamin-shaped tablets or effervescent vitamin commonly called, also have the same effect.
That’s according to research conducted by a team from the University of Helsinki, Finland. The team conducted research on eight types of effervescent vitamins, and quasi corrosive effect on the teeth.
Vitamins are made of minerals contained in the teeth apart, thereby making it more brittle, porous and easily susceptible to decay. In the study, teeth soaked in vitamin drinks for 100 hours. Research shows effervescent vitamin tablets containing vitamin C and high calcium, causing demineralization.
“If you take vitamins every day effervescent tablets, dental conditions will be weakened. Work teeth will also not be optimal,” said Dr.. Mervyn Druian, a spokesman for the British Dental Association, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Citric acid content in these vitamins that cause tooth brittle. That’s according to research by a team from the University of Baltimore Dental School. Dental erosion caused by acid solution in contact with teeth. That’s because the critical pH of dental enamel is 5.5. Solution with low pH can cause tooth erosion, especially its use in the long run or if taken regularly.
For an hour after you take vitamins, fruit juice in containers, or soft drinks, will continue to soften tooth enamel. During that period, the teeth become more susceptible to corrosion, sensitive and easily rot. Especially, if you brush your teeth immediately after consuming the drink, because it will tend to even lift the tooth enamel.
