Although popular sports drinks are good energy builders, there is also a downside to them. Most of these drinks are high in acidic content that is erosive to your tooth enamel. Your Centennial dentist will tell you that over time, this erosion will get into the bone structure that lies beneath the teeth. It can weaken the teeth, and cause severe damage, even resulting in tooth loss.

Your Centennial dentist may suggest that if you must consume soft drinks, and other acidic beverages, use them in moderation, and brush your teeth afterward.
