Sipping acidic boozes such as fruit teas and flavoured water can wear away teeth and damage the enamel, investigations conducted by scientists has shown.

The King’s College London team found that drinking them between snacks and savouring them for too long increased health risks of tooth erosion from acid.

The research, in the British Dental Journal, looked at the diets of 300 people with severe erosive tooth wear.

It said the problem was increasing as people snacked more.

Fruit squashes, cordials, fruit teas, diet guzzles, sugared beverages and flavoured sea are all acidic and can cause wear and tear to teeth, health researchers said.
