Green Tea Extract Reduces the Erosive Dentine Wear Caused by Energy Drinks In Vitro


Hamza, Blend; Rojas, Sheila Antonella Paucar; Körner, Philipp; Attin, Thomas; Wegehaupt, Florian J (2021). Green Tea Extract Reduces the Erosive Dentine Wear Caused by Energy Drinks In Vitro. Oral Health & Preventive Dentistry, 19(1):573-578.

Abstract

PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of energy drinks supplementation with green tea extract on the erosive dentine wear.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Six groups of bovine dentine samples (n = 15) were subjected to four cycles erosive attacks (10 min, 25 °C) and remineralisation (artificial saliva, 60 min, 37°C) using the following formulas: tap water; green tea extract; Red Bull; Red Bull supplemented with green tea extract; Red Bull Light; Red Bull Light supplemented with green tea extract. The erosive dentine wear - ie, the irreversible dentine loss - was measured using a stylus profilometer (µm, accuracy = 40 nm).
RESULTS: Median and interquartile range (IQR) of erosive dentine wear for the tested energy drinks before and after the supplementation with green tea extract were calculated as follows: Red Bull (before: 3.3 µm (1.0)); after: 1.2 µm (0.6)); Red Bull Light (before: 3.3 µm (0.9)); after: 2.0 µm (0.4)). The difference between the groups before and after the supplementation was statistically significant (P ˂0.05). The erosive dentine wear for the tap water group was calculated at 0.4 µm (0.6) and for the green tea extract group at -1.0 µm (1.3).
CONCLUSIONS: Supplementation of energy drinks with green tea extract could reduce the erosive dentine wear caused by energy drink in vitro.
