Does kombucha or other “acidic” foods like Sauerkraut and Yogurt harm teeth?

When the acidic substances touches the tooth, then it is possible that a small amount of tooth erosion can happen. Water can neutralize the acid in the mouth. So can saliva. In a healthy individual, eating these acidic foods will not cause any harm to teeth. If someone is highly susceptible to cavities, or has a toothache, then definitely use those foods with care, and rinse the mouth immediately after consumption. Many probiotic foods help our digestive system, by making our digestion more acidic. So we want these foods in our diet. I find kombucha, even home made, to be too sweet. I suggest avoiding kombucha in individuals who have active tooth decay. When tooth decay is halted, then moderate amounts of kombucha is yummy.
