This post from Prestige Dentistry in Palm Harbor and Trinity FL looks at the risks posed by those ubiquitous sports drinks. Many health-conscious people drink them regularly for hydration during workouts.
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 erodes, 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 do something about it, consider professional teeth whitening.
At Prestige Dentistry in Palm Harbor and Trinity FL we have brightened countless smiles with teeth whitening. People from Hudson, Clearwater, and East Lake also come to us for dental implants. Contact us today!
