Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Plano Dental Financing

Many health-conscious men and women exercise regularly, and some use 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 is weakened, those pearly whites are more  staining, discoloration, and decay.

Nobody wants stained 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 more about porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, give The Plano Dentist a call at 469-998-0235.
