Research and Methodologies

The Effects of Energy & Sports Drinks on Tooth Enamel

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this podcast, the listener should:

  • Gain more insight into the research and methodologies used in research studies about energy drinks and their effects on teeth
  • Know how energy drinks negatively affect the dentition (specifically enamel loss) and why

*Dr. Poonam Jain, BDS, MS, MPH

In 2012, THE NEXT DDS interviewed Dr. Poonam Jain about a study published in General Dentistry magazine regarding the effects of sports and energy drinks on teeth. Since that time, Dr. Jain has continued her research with the introduction of new methodologies and results. In this podcast, Dr. Jain returns to discuss these new findings, specifically the effects of energy drinks on enamel loss, and to go more in depth about the specific methods, measurements, and results of the studies. With energy drink sales climbing in the United States over the past several years, and college students being near the top of the list as far as those who consume these beverages, it is important for you, the dental student to hear what kinds of effects these often highly acidic drinks can have on teeth.
