Acid Ad Burns OJ
While watching “Dancing With the Stars” (not a normal watch for me, so no judgments), a particular commercial caught my attention. The spot begins with an unidentifiable professional talking about the downfalls of acidic beverages. As the commercial continues, I could identify the man as a dentist in professional attire who keeps repeating if you drink orange juice, then you need to use Sensodyne’s new ProNamel toothpaste. He then proceeded to single out wine, soft drinks, and again, orange juice. These are all acidic beverages and weaken the tooth’s enamel, he said. If you like these drinks, you should drink them through a straw, and, of course, use ProNamel, he said. Not once did he mention other causes of acid wear on teeth or point out foods as culprits.
