NZDA - "Switch to Water"

Soft drinks, sports drinks, energy drinks and juices contain acid and sugar that destroy teeth.  Avoid tooth decay and excess calories by switching your sugary drinks to water.  

  • Carry a water bottle with you when you are out and about and if you are thirsty, reach for water first!drinks damage teeth
  • Hydrate yourself with water.  It's free, fresh and available on tap!

Myth:  Unsweetend natural fruit juices contain no sugar and acids.

Fact:  Not true!  They still contain sugars and acids.  Moreover, they contain no fibre.  Best to eat your fruit, not drink it!

Myth:  It is ok to drink artificially sweetened drinks known as diet or zero-calorie drinks.

Fact:  Not true!  These drinks have a high erosive potential due to their acid content and contribution to tooth erosion.
