How an Energy Drink Impacts Your Teeth

Posted on 11/22/2021 by office
Energy drinks are among the most popular soft drinks on the globe. An energy drink is a beverage that has a high percentage of stimulant concentrations that hosts high amounts of caffeine and sugar. Energy drinks are highly consumed to reduce tiredness and increase sugar levels. However, consumption of energy drinks can have several negative impacts on your teeth due to their high percentage of sugar and caffeine as described below. Development of Tooth Decay Energy drinks have a negative reputation when it comes to dental health because of their high concentration of sugar and acids. The regular intake of energy drinks exposes your enamel to high acid concentration resulting in the damage of your tooth enamel making it start decaying. Breakage And Loss of Teeth. A high intake of energy drinks results in you continuously grinding your teeth because of the hyperactivity caused by the energy drink. The mixture of the different components of the energy drink in your teeth causes them to be weak. Henceforth, this can lead to the breakage of your tooth, and in worse cases, you can lose your tooth. Development of Dental Erosion. Dental erosion occurs when your teeth mix with the acids in the energy drink you are enjoying. The high percentage of acidity increases the chances of dental tooth erosion occurring. The acids which are responsible for dental erosion mix with the tooth enamel and cause bad health effects such as tooth decay. However, you can reduce the development of tooth decay, dental erosion, and tooth breakage by eating a healthy balanced diet that will help in the development of strong teeth. Also, brushing your teeth regularly reduces the impact of energy drinks on your teeth. However, if you cannot totally abstain from soft drinks, you can limit the intake of these energy drinks. Moreover, you can start using straws to prevent direct contact with the acid in the drink. To learn more, please contact us today!...
