ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA: Dental researchers have revealed that drinks with high acidity content like soft drinks, fruit juice, sports drinks can damage young people’s teeth within first 30 seconds of acid attack. Researchers at the University of Adelaide found that drinks high in acidity combined with night-time tooth grinding and reflux could cause major, irreversible damage to kid’s teeth.

Dr Sarbin Ranjitkar, said that in developed countries, dental erosion has been an issue of growing concern, and it was often only detected clinically after extensive tooth wear has occurred but such erosion could lead to a lifetime of compromised dental health that might require complex and extensive rehabilitation but it could also be prevented with minimal intervention.

He further suggested that parents should minimize consumption of any kind of soft drinks, sports drink, fruit juice or acidic foods to their children and they should consume fresh fruit instead of drinking fruit juice, although fresh fruits are naturally acidic but still they are a healthier option.
