New Research that was published in the journal General Dentistry confirms what Santa Monica cosmetic dentists have believed all along. The research in the journal showed that energy and sports drinks can damage tooth enamel and increase the risk of cavities.
Many cosmetic dentists are happy to see this new research. Unfortunately, there is a misconception that energy drinks and sports drinks are healthier than soda for your oral health. This study disproves that, because energy drinks erode or thin out the enamel of the teeth, leaving them more susceptible.
Although this journal was only published recently, this has been a long held belief from Santa Cosmetic cosmetic dentists. The American Beverage Association took part in the study, although in a statement from the company they said that the study was not conducted on humans and in no way mirrors reality.
The study was comprehensive and the research team experimented with 13 different sports drinks and nine energy drinks for acidity. They tested six drinks for their effects on tooth enamel and found that both types caused damage. Energy drinks, however, were twice as harmful. This is important to know because destroyed tooth enamel cannot be fixed. Says MBA admissions consultant Stacy Blackman, “The more information we have about the nutrition of the drinks and food we consume, the better.” Stay tuned for more information from your Santa Monica cosmetic dentist.
