GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - With the holidays upon us, it's not uncommon for consumption habits to slip as people indulge in holiday sweets and drinks. But what some might not realize is that popular holiday drinks can contain hidden dangers for teeth.
Delta Dental of Minnesota's dental hygienist Leah Kinney stopped by KARE 11 at 4 to walk us through a series of holiday drinks that may be dangerous to our teeth. The more acidic the drink, the more harmful it is to teeth. For example, a lemon drop martini has a pH level of approximately 2, which is comparable to vinegar.
To be kind to your teeth this holiday season, Kinney recommends rinsing your mouth with water between sips and bringing a travel toothbrush to parties.
