Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk In Alexandria

Alexandria Family Dentistry And Oral Health

Most health-conscious individuals in the Alexandria and Mt. Vernon area exercise regularly, and many turn to sports drinks for hydration.

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 susceptible to staining, discoloration, and decay.

Nobody wants stained teeth, so next time you’re at your Alexandria or Mt. Vernon gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.

If you have already experienced staining and tooth discoloration and would like to know more about porcelain veneers and teeth whitening in Alexandria, give Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry a call at 703-360-5881.
