Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Toms River Dental Financing

Many health-conscious individuals exercise regularly, and some use sports drinks for hydration. If you’re among them, the team at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River NJ has a word of caution for you.

While it’s true that they help keep electrolyte levels in the body, and pose fewer health risks than energy drinks, the acidity in sports drinks can erode tooth enamel. And when tooth enamel is weakened, those pearly whites are more suscepitble to 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 see how cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile’s appearance, call us at Rotem Dental Care in Toms River NJ. Our services also include general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
