Is drinking Apple cider vinegar bad for your teeth?

Apple cider vinegar is one of the popular home remedies for a wide range of health issues, including high cholesterol, blood sugar levels, obesity and high blood pressure. It’s also said to help with eczema and stomach acid reflux, but this has not been scientifically proven.

Because apple cider vinegar is a good source of nutrients like potassium, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C, it’s believed to be good for your body as a whole. Apple cider vinegar is usually consumed with foods as an additive to sauces, salad dressings and marinades. Some people also drink apple cider vinegar, diluted in hot or cold water.

Research has shown that apple cider vinegar has both antimicrobial and antioxidant effects – including anti-oral biofilm effects. Oral biofilms, also known as dental plaque, consist of a sticky layer of bacteria on tooth surfaces. This means that it may be able to reduce plaque levels in our teeth, but there have been no clinical studies to test this.
