Energy Drink Warning For La Jolla Kids (And Parents!)

16th Aug, 2019

Del Mar Smile Redesign

We’re committed to providing oral health and wellness tips. The team at Weston Spencer DDS – Conservative Comprehensive Dentistry advises our patients about healthy habits during every dental visit. We are seeing more and more adults and teens with tooth enamel erosion caused by repeated consumption of sports drinks.

Most of our patients take good care of their teeth, brush and floss, and come into Weston Spencer DDS – Conservative Comprehensive Dentistry 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 you or your child’s teeth have started to erode or have cavities, we can help. The dental health of each patient is always our top priority. We offer general and cosmetic dentistry services, and have offices in La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe. Schedule an appointment today!
