Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk

Kelowna Dental Financing

This post from Love Your Smile in Kelowna 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, discolouration, 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 discolouration and would like to do something about it, consider professional teeth whitening. We offer Zoom!® whitening, which can brighten your smile in a single office visit.

At Love Your Smile in Kelowna we have brightened countless smiles with teeth whitening. People from Mission, V1Y 8B7, and V1W 3C6 also come to us for cosmetic dentistry and dental implants. Contact us today!
