Energy drinks erode tooth enamel

The study, published in General Dentistry, found the drinks contain high levels of acid. Acid erodes tooth enamel, leaving teeth vulnerable to decay. The damage is irreversible.
Teeth showed symptoms of enamel erosion after only 5 days of exposure to these drinks. Energy drinks caused twice as much enamel erosion as sports drinks did.
Save your teeth! Either drink some good old fashioned water or drink your energy drinks sparingly, and use a straw.
