There are plenty of drinks, including smoothies and sports drinks, available which contain more than the six teaspoons of sugar – the daily limit recommended by the government.  Many of the drinks are also high in acidity.

Most people are aware of the damage these drinks cause to teeth but because of the marketing, believe the benefits outweigh the problems caused.  The teeth begin to erode and could become yellow, weak and sensitive.

Water is still the best way to re-hydrate, but if sugary drinks are consumed they should be limited.  Avoid sipping these liquids over a long time as this gives the sugar longer to attack the tooth enamel and may cause more damage.
