Here's another problem. Many of these drinks have a high citric acid content. This flavor booster can extend the shelf life, which is good. But it can also strip the enamel from your teeth and make them more sensitive as well as more prone to cavities and decay.

Consuming sports drinks and other energy products doesn’t automatically put you on the direct path to teeth destruction. Several other factors play a role, like your overall dental hygiene, your lifestyle, your saliva production, and your genes. See your general dentist in Evansville, IN for regular check ups.

Water is and always will be the best drink for staying hydrated.  If you are not engaged in prolonged physical activity, then skip the sports drinks and soda.  Your teeth will thank you!
