Energy Drinks And Dental Fillings

Effects Of Energy Drinks On Dental Fillings

Studies have shown how drinking sports and energy drinks can contribute to dental erosion (http://www.ada.org/news/5970.aspx). Now this interesting study conducted by researchers from Turkey showed how long-term exposure of dental restorative material to  these types of drinks can have an effect on its surface hardness.

To be effective, dental composites must be durable and according to this study, sports and energy drinks  have “detrimental effects on the surface integrity of dental restorations and tooth structure”.
