creatine and bad teeth

Is it possible that creatine damages your teeth? I mean just creatine mono, not a mixture of other stuff ...

    No. I've seen some comments re CEE doing so and I'd hazard a guess that the sugar etc many add when using any creatine form will be an issue. But Creatine itself? No.

    Cant say Ive ever noticed it. Most body builders seem to have good teeth lol Must be the calcium in the milk they are drinking!

    As for creatine rotting the teeth I think it would depend on what you are taking it with. If you were taking something like celltech which is loaded with sugar then yea but if you take something like creapure in your pwo shake that is made with water, whey, carb source ect then the sugar content of that would be relatively low.

    Or u could just brush like a madman after you take it!

    Tosh. Let's hear what product you are using. Indeed you state you are adding it to a whey product - flavoured by any chance??

    Creatine is, for all intents and purposes, an amino acid (made from 3 in fact). It's not a sugar. You'll eat meat and or high protein foods also rich in amino acids. Does having a bit of meat or other high protein food affect your teeth?? Of course not (unless there's something wrong with your teeth in which case pretty much anything will). Now if you use the recommended maintainence dose of between 3g and 5g a day then that amount of aminos will be far less than any protein drink, protein bar, or protein rich food you might eat.

    Creatine is just that - between (low, low grade) 90% and 99.99% (super duper grade) purity. With nothing but the moisture in the air drawn into what was a dry powder once the lid is opened. There are, however, MANY cell volumizing type products (like Cell tech for example) which use Creatine in one form or another along with a form of sugar - typically Glucose. These sugars will be what might cause teeth problems. That and whatever sugars are in other supplements and foods you consume.

    I'm seeing more and more posts where statements like 'creatine caused me problems' are not true because the person making the statement wasn't just using a bog standard creatine but one full of other goodies. Or as per the comment - with something else entirely.

    About as bad as any juice with citric acid in. In other words nothing worth worrying about - unless you clean your teeth after those as well (as per some posts I have seen).

    I agree with that and that's more or less what I told the guy who told me two of his teeth broke while on creatine mono.. I thought it was bull**** tbh.... unless he was taking it with sugar ...

    Hey there, I dont think the creatine itself is corrisve, but you need to mix cratien monohydrate with a drink high in sugar so brush your teeth after the sugary drink and there wont be a problem.

    slightly Off topic,

    are amino acids (powder form) damaging to teeth ??

    As per my new buddies comment where in he quotes me: tosh re the needing to have it with sugar and if, as per my post, Creatine is made from aminos (3) as is most high protein food why would you be so daft as to ask if aminos in powder form are damaging? Perhaps if they are big rufty tufty granules and you rubbed them into the enamel. Otherwise no.

    Yes creatine would be cariogenic as it is an acid

    How bad though? Unlikely to be that bad as it isn't held in the mouth that long. However what you mix it in may have an impact. Are you consuming it in a cordial drink? This is a mix of acid and sugar for both instant and prolonged dental attack.
