In the last decade, sports beverages have become increasingly popular, but they aren’t great for your teeth.
“Scientific research has found that the pH levels in many sports drinks could lead to tooth erosion due to their high concentration of acidic components, which could wear away at the tooth’s enamel,” says David F. Halpern, DMD, FAGD, president of the Academy of General Dentistry.
Additionally, these drinks are often high in sugars that act as “food” for acid-producing bacteria, which then sneak into the cracks and crevices in your teeth, causing cavities and tooth decay.

"I have suffered all my life with a fear of the dentist that prevented me from keeping my mouth in the healthy condition that it needed to be in. From the time I made the inquiry call for a consultation, to this very day, I say with extreme honesty and conviction, calling Jones Smiles was one of the best decisions of my life." - Terri Wozniak
