Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Carrollton Dental Financing

Many health-conscious people exercise regularly, and some depend on sports drinks for hydration. The Carrollton Dentist wants you to know they can put your dental health at risk.

While it’s true 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 water for sports drinks.

If you have already noticed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to do something about it, we can help. The Carrollton Dentist offers cosmetic dentistry services like teeth whitening that can put the shine back in your smile. Call us for an appointment today.
