During the holidays, we all like to indulge in foods and drinks that we don’t often get a chance to enjoy during other times of the year. At least not without certain consequences!

You might reach for a second, or even third, helping of all your favorite carb and calorie-loaded dishes and desserts.

And perhaps to balance the scales a bit, you tell yourself that you’ll skip the soda or wine and reach, instead, for sparkling water… something fizzy, flavorful, and fun without the extra sugar. It has to be a healthier option, right?

Well, you might want to reconsider for the sake of your smile.

KPRC-TV recently asked Dr. Amanda Juarez at Houston Uptown Dentists to weigh in on the effects of sparkling water on your teeth and what makes it so potentially problematic for your pearly whites. 

So before you start the holiday celebrations, be sure to check out today’s video to listen to your favorite Houston dentist’s advice, and follow Dr. Juarez’s tips on keeping your teeth in tip-top shape this season!
