Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Categories: Dental Health

Monkton Dental Health

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

While it’s true that they help preserve 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.

If you have already experienced staining and tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers and teeth whitening in Monkton, give Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS a call at 443-672-2548.
