640_Generic_Energy_DrinksThe popularity of sports and energy drinks, especially among teens, is cause for concern at the dental office. A study published in the May/June 2012 issue of General Dentistry found that regular exposure (15 minutes a day, 4 times a day) to these drinks started causing serious enamel damage in as little as 5 days.
