Is an energy drink worse than a soda? Ask a dentist.

July 18, 2024

Filed under: Uncategorized — woodsidedental @ 2:14 pm


Perception vs. reality: an energy drink is good, soda not so much. Yet if you ask any dental health professional, it might surprise you to know what dentists view as the lesser of two evils—at least when it comes to the well-being of your teeth.

“Energy drinks are highly acidic and can erode your enamel more aggressively than cola. If you’re sipping on an energy drink throughout the day, you’re exposing your teeth to prolonged acid attacks. This can lead to severe enamel erosion and cavities,” said Dr. Derek Cornetta, DDS, who owns and operates Woodside Dental Care at 36 South Main Street in Assonet.
