Sugary Drinks Could Be Ruining Runners’ Teeth

health teeth smile dentistScientists have found a link between tooth erosion and running. In a 2014 study, experts discovered that runners were more likely to drink energy drinks that damaged their teeth, something that could result in more trips to the dentist. These drinks often have teeth-destroying sugar and other additives which ruin your smile.

Key takeaways

– To counteract the effect of these drinks, consume more water instead. This will help you avoid the dentist and keep your smile healthy.
– Chewing sugar-free gum could also help. Runners should chew a piece of sugar-free gum after they have completed a run.
– Don’t forget to brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis, too.

“Physically active people might need to pay extra attention to their oral health. The study, done by the School of Dental Medicine at the University Hospital Heidelberg in Germany, found an increased risk of dental erosion in athletes.”
