Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Billings Dental Financing

This post from Neal C. Johnson DMD in Billings MT looks at the risks posed by those ubiquitous sports drinks. Many health-conscious people drink them regularly for hydration during workouts.

While it’s true that they help maintain 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 darkened teeth, so next time you’re at the gym, try substituting sports drinks for water.

If you have already noticed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to do something about it, consider professional teeth whitening. At our practice, we can brighten your smile in a single office visit.
