Using a revolutionary vertical scanning microscope for the first time, the
researchers were able to see the extensive surface detail on teeth.
Such juice-drinking has further, negative implications; the unnatural acceleration
of erosion of the teeth that it causes substantially increases the risk of
development and spread of tooth decay.
