In brief: Drinking

Consuming things high in acid or sugar can lead to the advancement of tooth decay.
The low acid removes minerals from your teeth making them weaker, while the sugar clings to your teeth and feeds the bacteria. Consuming water after eating and drinking other beverages can help to remove this acid and sugar. Also, brushing and flouride rinse is the best way to prevent damage outside of the dentist.
