The Effects of Energy and Sports Drinks on Teeth

An Interview with Dr. Poonam Jain

Learning Objectives:

After hearing this interview podcast, the listener should:

  • Understand the effects of sports and energy drinks on tooth enamel
  • Be better able to provide nutritional counseling to his or her patients 

Dr. Poonam Jain is Professor and Director of Community Dentistry at the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.  In the 2012 May/June edition of General Dentistry, Dr. Jain and colleagues published a study that linked sports drinks and energy drinks to dental caries and the breakdown of tooth enamel.  The study highlights the deleterious effects that the acid in such beverages can have in the oral health of consumers and has created interest in the topic on a national scale.  This interview, conducted by THE NEXT DDS, should give dental students further insight into the study (i.e, its design, methodology, results, and conclusion), and aid students in nutritional/oral health counseling with their patients.

*Dr. Poonam Jain, Professor and Director of Community Dentistry, Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine, Alton, IL.
