Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Arlington Dental Financing

Many health-conscious individuals area exercise regularly, and many turn to sports drinks for hydration.

While it’s true that they 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 erodes, those pearly whites are more susceptible to staining, discoloration, and decay.

Nobody wants stained teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.
