High Acid Drinks Can Damage Teeth » blog.teethremoval.com

So I have previously written about how sports and energy drinks can cause permanent tooth damage. See the post http://blog.teethremoval.com/sports-and-energy-drinks-can-cause-permanent-tooth-damage/ where it is mentioned that the high acidity levels in the drinks erode tooth enamel.
