    Lemon water bad for teeth enamel?

    I have been drinking about 96+ ounces of water a day for awhile now, but recently I decided to slice up 1/2 a lemon and just leave it in my water bottle until the next day. I actually heard that lemon water can strip your teeth enamel and I was wondering if anyone had heard of this before? I've been searching around on google for a little more in-depth research as to how much this will effect my teeth but I have yet to find anything decent. Thanks in advance.

    my dentist told me awhile back that lemon in general wasn't good for tooth enamel.

    ah, thank you for the quick response. I heard it would help detoxify my liver to help with my acne from acne.org but who knows if that even works anyways =p.

    a lot of dentists recommend rinsing your mouth in bicarbonate or Arm & Hammer baking soda (NOT BRUSHING!) After eating something very acidic (ie lemon)....but yeah, as get fit said, lemon, or anything acidic is bad for tooth enamel. The bicarbonate rinse should help keep your teeth healthy.
