A Viral topic spreading on TikTok is a “Healthy Coke” concoction which is a mix of balsamic vinegar and seltzer, claiming it is a healthy substitute of cola soda. The American Dental Association has done research on this trending fad and has found that there is signification acid in the mixture which can cause erosion and damage to our teeth’s enamel. This video can make individuals think that overindulging in this beverage is safe for your teeth and dental wellness: unfortunately, this is far from the truth. Even sugar-free sodas or carbonated beverages still have a high enough level of acid to cause injury to our enamel, like simple sparkling waters, though not as much as cola sodas. Remember that tooth erosion is permanent and non-reversible, and this can also cause discoloration of our smiles as the white enamel is errored away, exposing the more yellow/brown layers of our tooth structure.
