I somehow stumbled upon this article: Revealed: How fizzy vitamin supplements can wreck your teeth. Certainly, Daily Mail is probably not a very reliable source. But when I searched in Google Scholar and Google Books, it seems that there are more serious sources which study correlation between usage of effervescent tablets and some problems with teeth. For example, the book Dental Erosion: From Diagnosis to Therapy (edited by Adrian Lussi) mentions link between use of effervescent tablets and tooth erosion.
Could somebody more knowledgeable tell me more about this? Specifically, I want to ask:
- Are effervescent tablets really bad for teeth health? Or is it ok assuming I do not use them too much?
- Are only some of the effervescent tablets on the market problematic? If yes, how can I choose some which do not cause teeth problems.
- If they are bad, is it still ok to use them if I brush my teeth right after using them?
