Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Yuma Dental Financing

Many health-conscious people exercise regularly, and some use sports drinks for hydration. In this post, Yuma Dentist offers a word of caution.

While it’s true that sports drinks 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 is compromised, 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 noticed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, give The Yuma Dentist a call. We have offices in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills.
