Fizzy & Sports Drinks

Fizzy Sports and Energy Drinks

Fizzy sports and energy drinks contain acid that attacks your tooth enamel, (including the sugar-free and ‘zero’ varieties) and most contain sugar, which causes tooth decay. Every time you take a sip throughout the day, you’ll start a brand new acid attack that will last 20 minutes.

What You Can Do

  • Cut down the number of these drinks you have
  • Drink through a straw
  • Don’t brush your teeth for an hour after you’ve finished one of these drinks – the acid in them temporarily softens your tooth enamel and brushing too early will harm it
  • Don’t drink them before bed
  • Swish water around your mouth after each bottle or can of drink
