Nowadays, it’s quite alarming that sports drinks are not only popular among adult athletes but also among teens and other younger children. Due to this reason, dental experts are becoming apprehensive about the effect it may bring to the oral health of consumers. Based on studies, sports drinks can cause more enamel damage compared to energy drinks and soft drinks. According to researchers, sports drinks have high sugar content and acid that can damage the roots of the teeth and tooth enamel.
On a brighter side, you can still enjoy drinking sports drinks only when you use them occasionally and not as part of your daily diet. Also, you must utilise the benefits of straw while drinking these kinds of beverages or squirt them at the back of your mouth, depending on the type of bottle you have in your hand. After drinking them, it is also advisable to swish some amount of water to wash away the sugars and acid that linger in your teeth and mouth. On the other hand, the best way to protect your enamel and avoid the development of tooth decay in the future is choosing water instead every time you get thirsty and resists sugary beverages as much as you can.
