No. Common foods with larger amounts of sugar (sucrose) often cause cavities and Splenda is synthetic sugar substitute ...tradename Sucralose.

Quote directly from FDA: "Sucralose, the sweetening ingredient used to sweeten this food, unlike sugars, does not promote tooth decay." "

There might be some natural sugar in the "flavoring".

Some pure water, alternated with the flavored water, might be no bad idea.

remember that eating CHEESE will help to prevent cavities .
our dentist recommends chewing on a bit of hard cheese last thing at night (he's not concerned about "cheesy breath" :wink: ) .

But it turns out that eating cheese may be good for your teeth in several ways. Eating cheese may help reduce the incidence of cavities. When food is eaten, the pH often drops - the mouth becomes more acidic. Teeth are very sensitive to acid and it appears that eating cheese helps maintain a pH level in the mouth that is safe for teeth. Under experimental conditions, it was shown that the pH drop following consumption of a 10% sugar solution was 4.26, but when the sugar solution was eaten after cheese, the pH dropped to only 6.48.

Aged cheddar, Swiss, blue, Monterey Jack, brie, Gouda, and processed American cheese all have been shown to reduce dental caries.
