Daily tip #42| Juice bad for teeth?

Is apple juice bad for your teeth? Well.. Apples are great for your teeth, why would apple juice be bad? That's logical, but..


Apple juice contains many sugars and acids. Apples do too, but when you eat an apple, the water and fibers inside of it wash away the acid and sugars. Juice doesn't have fibers or water, it can weaken and erode the enamel.


It has been found that orange juice decreases hardness and increases roughness of enamel...  Enamel hardness was decreased by 84 percent. That's right. It was literally washed away.
 It is important to understand that there are a lot of acids in fruit juices, sodas, energy and sport drinks. It is very important on how the drink is drunk, if you slowly sip it through 20 minutes, you are way more likely to have tooth erosion, than someone who drinks it in a few minutes.

Just a small sip leaves your teeth getting attacked by sugars and acids for twenty minutes.

thanks for the tip, at the end the better is forgot about prefabricated drinks and make it by your own with fresh fruit if you have the time to spend

Never been a fan of orange juice in the first place, this is just another reason why.

I guess it's good that I down juice like shots.

Pat Hatt said...

Apple juice is all I drink, I'm in trouble now..haha

DWei said...

Will keep this in mind.

I can imagine though, someone drinks orange juice for breakfast and then goes to brush their teeth.

Goodbye enamel.

I don't drink juice because of this and the sugar content.

Betsy said...

I have heard this! Especially bad to put in a sipper cup or baby bottle.

aamedor said...

Interwebs Fails said...

Don't tell me that!! :'(

R.gers said...

This seems really scary. However that bit of statistic, where did you pull it from?

Tonkow said...

Wow, is that true? o.O

thank u for the tip!

convictus said...

Do you have any links to studies on this. Not that I specifically doubt it, and I have heard the mouth acidity adjusts for 20 minutes after you finish eating. I would just like to see a long term study on the effects on adult and adolescent teeth.

I think the long term effects are pretty obvious, lots of cavities and root canals..

Major.Mack said...

love orange juice!

Laughing Vault said...

i drink only juices with no sugar :)

Michael Arsenault said...

@Laughing Vault Well juices still have natural sugars rather than added sugars like in most.

I had read about this in Men's Health magazines and the more I read about it seemed to make sense. Just drink the one thing your body needs the most, Water!

Snap. :S

MRanthrope said...

but, but I love drinking juice! =/

lowfrequencies said...

this is bad news!

JDC said...

How are we meant to enjoy delicious juice now?

Aschatria Xyana said...

Anything with too much sugar is bad for teeth if you have a bad quality of tooth enamel.

Even fructose from fruit and starch from bread.

Sorry to say but toothbrush and lots of patience is the only solution.

dora said...

never knew this! thanks for sharing.

Movies on my Mind said...

What about if you drink 'pure apple juice' with the fibre and stuff still in it? Apple juice is so tasty though.

Laughing Vault said...
