Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk
Many health-conscious individuals exercise regularly, and some use sports drinks for hydration. While we encourage that, the dentist at Town Dental Group in Mint Hill has a word of caution.
While it’s true that sports drinks help keep electrolyte levels in the body (and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks), their acidity can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel is weakened, those pearly whites are more staining, discoloration, and decay.
Nobody wants discolored teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.
If you have already observed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to know how to address it, as us about porcelain veneers or teeth whitening.
