Leave the Sports and Energy Drinks On The Shelf

August 10, 2015

Pass on sports drinks and instead choose water.You’ve grown up hearing the same thing over and over…and over – “Sugar is bad for your teeth. Stay away.” Of course, this is great advice because it’s true. Since you’ve been a kid, grocery stores have gotten bigger and now carry aisles and aisles worth of food that is good for you and some food that isn’t so good for you. Most of the food that isn’t good for you is the sugary stuff. You know what we’re talking about. In some ways more than others, beverages that are packed with sugar can leave your mouth in bad shape after repeated use. If you’re an athlete, there are plenty of sports drinks that are meant to keep you operating at maximum efficiency. In the case of energy drinks, the whole point is to keep you alert. Unfortunately, both of these types of drinks carry loads of sugar that can wreak havoc on your oral health. Our office in Hutchinson, KS wants you to know how detrimental sports drinks and other sugary beverages can be for your oral health. Do you like cavities? No? Then it would be wise to put down the sports drink for a glass of delicious water instead. Dr. Ringler is the Hutchinson dentist you can trust for priceless dental advice.
