Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Categories: General Dentistry

Jefferson City Dental Financing

Many health-conscious individuals in the Jefferson City area exercise regularly, and many 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 erodes, those pearly whites are more susceptible to 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 experienced staining and tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers and teeth whitening in Jefferson City, give Jefferson City Dental Care a call at 573-634-2400.
