Are Sports and Energy Drinks Damaging Your Teeth?

Drinking energy and sports drinks on a regular basis is becoming increasingly popular, especially among young people. But did you know that these drinks can be extremely damaging to your teeth?

Sports and Energy Drinks Are Highly Acidic

It’s important to remember the purposes of each of these drinks so as not to consume them more often than you should. Energy drinks may provide a pick-me-up during a long day at work, but drinking one or more energy drinks everyday can damage your teeth in the long run.

Sports drinks were made to keep your body hydrated and energized during bouts of intense exercise. While they may be beneficial during a good workout, these drinks should never take the place of water and should not be consumed casually or on a daily basis.

The reason for this is that both energy and sports drinks are highly acidic. Regularly consuming food or drink with high acidity levels wears away your tooth enamel. This makes teeth more susceptible to cavities, tooth discoloration, and sensitivity.

    I doubt that simple discussion can change anything in our country, but if you really have an idea to share, this is your chance to shake our government up. It's quite a good initiative, but to my mind, it will only work when all results of discussion are formed into real suggestions for statesmen.

    I hope this project will change something in our social and political state because many of our state's residents are really fed up with the current situation including the world economic crisis, poverty, overpopulation etc.
