We’re committed to providing oral health and wellness tips for parents. The Pediatric Dental Center in Burlington advises our patient’s parents about healthy habits during every dental visit. We are seeing more and more teens and tweens with tooth enamel erosion caused by repeated consumption of sports drinks.
Most of these kids take good care of their teeth, brush and floss, and come into Pediatric Dental Center for a twice-yearly exam and cleaning.
But guess what? If you drink energy drinks or other sugary beverages regularly, your enamel can weaken and you can be more prone to cavities.
Drinks like Red Bull, Rock Star, and Monster are a cocktail of powerful acids and other enamel-eroding substances. Most of them contain citric acid, fruit juices, loads of sugar, and a potent chemical that gives them their bright fluorescent color. By drinking them, you’re just bathing your teeth in acid and sugar. And who would take that kind of bath?
Water is best for your teeth.
If your child’s teeth have started to erode or have cavities, we can help. At the Pediatric Dental Center, we have a high standard of care and a friendly office. Call us today to help your child have a beautiful smile for life!
