Lemon juice can wear away your tooth enamel.

lemons We all know blueberries and broccoli help stop periodontal disease. But do you know that lemons can wear away tooth enamel?

Jennifer Jablow, a cosmetic dentist in New York City says:

1. Eat your antioxidants. The teeth and gums are made up of collagen, and foods containing antioxidants, like blueberries and broccoli, help protect them from inflammation.

2. Limit lemons. It’s fine to sip some lemon-spiked water on occasion, but don’t overdo it, and never suck on lemons. The high acid content of lemon juice can wear away tooth enamel.

What I know for sure is that it’s all connected.
