In brief: Loose stool, etc
All artificial sweeteners do not cause cavities but the liquid or food that you consume may contain other compounds that could be bad for your teeth, such as acid.
Some research also indicates that if you consume large quantities of any artificial sweetener it may be hazardous to your health. Another side effect is if you consume large quantities of an artifcial sweetener, you can get diarrhea.
