Alcohol has many bad effects on health, with dental issues being one of them.
Alcohol is often used in chemistry as a drying agent, and it does the same for your mouth when you consume alcoholic beverages.
It reduces saliva, and makes the environment of your mouth more acidic, which can soften enamel. Sweet Liqueurs also have alot of sugar, which directly can affect ones teeth.
How to protect teeth after alchohol ?
Theres only one way and that is to brush for 20 minutes.
Why 20 minutes?
That’s about how long it takes in order to remineralize the enamel softened by acid in Alchohol.
No amount of brushing will protect your teeth if you do not drink in moderation.
Drinking alot can cause cavities, gum deterioration and tooth loss
For healthy teeth, reduce chohol or better dont drink alchohol at all.
