Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Wilson Dental Financing

Many health-conscious individuals exercise regularly, and some use sports drinks for hydration. At Wilson Dental Group, we remind you these drinks can contribute to tooth decay.

While it’s true that 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 is weakened, 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 noticed staining or tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers or teeth whitening, give Wilson Dental Group a call at 336-450-2077.
