Energy Drink Warning For Toms River Kids (And Parents!)

Manchester Township Smile RedesignThe topic of this blog post from Rotem Dental Care in Toms River is energy drinks and the weakening they can cause to your teeth. We are seeing more and more teens and adults with tooth enamel erosion caused by frequent consumption of sports drinks.

Most of these individuals take good care of their teeth, brush and floss, and come into Rotem Dental Care for a twice-yearly exam and deep cleaning.

But guess what? If you drink energy drinks regularly, your enamel can soften even if you practice oral hygiene.

Drinks like Red Bull, Rock Star, and Monster are a cocktail of powerful acids and other enamel-eroding ingredients. Most of them contain citric acid, fruit juices, loads of sugar, and a potent chemical that gives them their bright fluorescent color.

We are worried that teenagers do not understand the considerable oral health risks. Researchers have found the energy drinks and sports drinks erode tooth enamel more than soda and fruit juices!

We need to add the caveat that carbonated drinks and fruit juices also contain acids that can damage teeth.

If your teeth have enamel erosion, whatever the cause, we can restore your smile with advanced cosmetic dentistry. Crowns, porcelain veneers, inlays and onlays can correct both structural and cosmetic troubles.
