Do Sports Drinks Damage Your Teeth?
The researchers found evidence of damage to tooth enamel after as little as five days of exposure to sports or energy drinks, although energy drinks showed a much higher potential to damage teeth than sports drinks. Energy drinks appeared to cause almost twice the damage to teeth as sports drinks did. After reviewing this data, they recommend that patients not brush their teeth within an hour of drinking sports and energy drink. Brushing may potentially increase the erosion process.
So the next time you reach for that energy drink, maybe consider a healthier alternate like good old fashioned cold water combined with a quick exercise burst to enhance your energy naturally. Contact us to learn more about dental health and caring for your teeth.
