  1. This is important to understand if you keep getting cavities after trying to reduce sugars. The low/no sugar beverages like energy drinks and seltzers may not have the sugar the bacteria like, but they are very acidic and dissolve enamel easily. Although coffee is considered “acidic” it is about as acidic as milk, which is almost neutral. Drinks like Gatorade and Red Bull have acids that are more similar in acidity to battery acid. It makes the drinks taste good and quickly ruins teeth.
