“I heard from a dentist that drinking hot water with raw lemon is terrible for the enamel. Is this true?”
Dr Sara Solomon:
Many health and fitness enthusiasts drink hot lemon water upon waking to
- cleanse the system
- stimulate digestive enzymes
- possibly even assist with weight loss.
The benefits are clear enough, so what’s the problem?
The Main Problem is…Enamel Erosion.
Dr Sara Solomon…
Erosion is the loss of tooth enamel, caused by acid attack.
When the enamel is worn away, it exposes the underlying dentin (which is yellower in colour than enamel), which may lead to painful sensitivity.
