Most People Should Avoid Drinking Sports Drinks

Posted on 10/10/2017 by Dr. Justin Lai
Sports Drink Edge Dental TX 77079
While, hydration is key when it comes to good health, it is important to know that water is the best way to go. Not only does soda have a high sugar content in it, but so do sports drinks.

These can leave the teeth sticky and ridden with decay. Those that drink them regularly will find that they need to clean their teeth more often and may have more cavities.

Sports Drinks Might Not Be the Best

They do have antioxidants and ways to hydrate the body better with electrolytes, which is awesome when playing sports. When it comes to your teeth, though, the sugar content that sits on the top of them is not so great. Drinking the sports drinks can be done, but rinsing the mouth out with water or brushing after consuming them should be done.

Any drink that has a high sugar content should be considered. Your teeth hold the bacteria and sugar on the tops of them. This causes the teeth to break down with time due to the sugar that is sitting there. It eats through the enamel and through the other areas of the teeth.

Due to this, it is important to take the best care of the teeth that you have. Make sure that you always go to the dentist, as well for the proper cleaning. You need to make sure that they do their deep cleaning to protect the teeth and remove any leftover plaque and build up that might be on it.

We can provide the individualized care that you need when it comes to cleanings and exams. We want to give the best service possible. This is why we ensure that you get the proper cleanings and care. Speak with them today to find out even more!
