Energy Drinks and your Teeth

Energy Drinks Damage TeethEnergy Drinks have become an intricate part of the American culture.  More than 50 percent of teens and young adults utilize these drinks for the quick “energy fix”  that these drinks promise and provide. People are under the impression that these drinks are the miracle cure to get them through their day but research is showing this is the farthest from the truth.

Let’s look at the impact on just your teeth.  “A new study published in the journal General Dentistry found that energy and sports drinks contain so much acid that they start destroying teeth after only five days of consistent use.” It was always the perception that sports drinks and energy drinks were a better alternative than soda but the truth is they are not.  The acid levels in these drinks bathe the tooth in acid attacking the enamel. In addition, the sugar in these drinks turn to acid and continue to attack the enamel.
