Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Huntington Dental Financing

Many health-conscious individuals exercise regularly, and some depend on sports drinks for hydration.

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

If you have already observed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, give Matlach Dental a call at
