**Learning @ Logic** Is apple cider vinegar bad for your teeth?

15/11/2017

Absolutely! Despite a variety of health claims about this natural product, apple cider vinegar is definitely not good for your teeth because of its acidity. Apple cider vinegar contains acetic acid. It has pH of around 3 which can readily soften and dissolve your teeth, let alone its potential to cause throat burns. It is even worse if you gargle it in your mouth or if you brush your teeth right after sipping it as it removes tooth structure and causes sensitivity. To prevent damage to your teeth, use a straw to minimise the contact with your teeth and wait for at least half an hour before brushing your teeth or turn it into a yummy salad dressing. It balances the pH when you eat it with other foods.
