Dental Myth or Fact #2:

Exposure to acidic foods like lemons causes tooth decay.

Fact: Acidic foods such as lemons, citrus juices or soda don’t directly cause cavities but do weaken the enamel making the tooth more susceptible. If you lose the enamel’s protection and expose the underlying dentin, your tooth is now more prone to decay.
