Why Sports Drinks Put Teeth At Risk In Bankers Hill

Why Sports Drinks Put San Diego Oral Health At Risk

Most health-conscious individuals in the Hillcrest, Mission Hills and San Diego 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 Bankers Hill or Mission Hills gym, try substituting water for sports drinks.
