You love your latte! So do millions of other Americans. Yet, as you pull up to that drive-thru and order your favorite coffee drink, be sure to ask for a glass of water to go with it. While coffee is delicious and gives you that caffeine buzz you have been craving all morning, it can really stain your teeth. Moreover, the acidic nature of the coffee itself, and the sugar you put in it, can eat away at your teeth with some serious force.
This is where that glass of water comes in. After you finish your coffee, wash it down with a big glass of water. Water works to wash away some of that excess sugar and coffee on your teeth, giving you a little bit of extra protection against acid damage until you can brush your teeth again.
