Many common drinks have very low pH levels. While this is likely not a probelm for someone drinking these beverages during a meal, it is a problem for those that sip them throughout the day.

What does a low pH soft drink mean for your teeth?

A low pH means the solution is BAD for your teeth!! A low pH allows the acid that bacteria make to more efficiently demineralize the outer layer of your teeth. There is a constant mineralization and de-mineralization of the outer layer of your teeth. Too much de-mineralization and the enamel can no longer keep out the bacteria. In short a low pH makes it easier for bacteria that are always present on your teeth to turn your tooth into a cavity.
