While drinking lemon water on an empty stomach a few moments after you wake up has been praised by many, the side effects of such practice were utterly ignored.
In the last few years, the internet healthy portals and websites are full with articles that drinking lemon in warm water on an empty stomach when you wake up is so good for your health, but nobody told you what it can do to your teeth.
The lemon acid, especially if it’s combined with warm water, softens the tooth enamel.
If you wash your teeth in less than 30 minutes after you drink this healthy mixture, there are great chances you will get your enamel damaged.
But there are few ways for you to reduce the chances of that. First, let the water be warm, as the room temperature. Second, you can drink it with a straw.
And third, don’t wash your teeth after you drink this mixture. You can do that 1-2 hours after that.
