Will root beer hurt my teeth?


Answer by  cmaopep (239)

All colas or sodas can eventually harm your teeth because of the acidic ingredients present. Over time it can wear down the enamel that protects your teeth.


Answer by  DiannSmith (108)

Drinking any soft drink with flavor enhancers will cause tooth decay. Root beer, however, contains fewer enhancers than other sodas, so it is a better choice.

If your teeth are in good condition root beer should not hurt it, if it does you may have a cavity.

I do not believe it will hurt your teeth. It is actually one of the least sodas to hurt your teeth. Drinking clear sodas are the worse for your teeth.

No, root beer will not hurt your teeth as long as you are brushing properly in order to ensure that you remove all of the sugar.


Answer by  foodie213 (301)

Any drink with an acid content has the potential to wear down enamel over time. You should be sure to follow a brushing and flossing regimen, especially after having any sort of sugary drink. For more information about what root beer can do to your teeth you should consult your dentist.

Root beer, like other sodas, is definitely bad for your teeth. But as long as you brush consistently and well, you should be fine.
