Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Royal Oak Dental Financing

Many health-conscious individuals exercise regularly, and some 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 is compromised, those pearly whites are more  staining, discoloration, and decay.

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

If you have already spotted staining or tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, give Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry a call at 248-541-8770.
