It's summer and we're all reaching for drinks to stay cool. But before you grab your favorite beverages, remember that not all summer refreshers are created equal. 

A study in the Journal of the American Dental Association compares the pH levels of 300+ beverages sold in the U.S. and found that most are potentially erosive to teeth.

Water's minimally erosive with a less than 3 pH, most fruit juices are erosive with a 3-4 pH and most colas and sports drinks are extremely erosive with a greater than 4 pH.

In addition, keep in mind that a change of seasons means to replace your toothbrush.  We recommend you do this every 3 months or when you have flat or frayed bristles.  

Have a Safe and Fun Filled Summer!
