Dental Erosion and Severe Tooth Decay Related To Sugary Drinks
Today I want to talk about a very important topic to me and that is drinks! And how drinks, sugary drinks can affect your teeth.
Hello there. I’m Dr. Grey Kantor from Kantor Dental Group aesthetic dentistry and implantology. We are located in San Rafael, California.
Today I want to talk about a very important topic to me and that is drinks. And how drinks, sugary drinks can affect your teeth. Things like Pepsi, Gatorade you know and those energy drinks. Especially Gatorade or sports drinks can be extremely malicious because you’ll be working out for say two hours, or play a basketball game, a soccer game. And you’ll be working out and playing for two hours, three hours. And the whole time taken little sips of your drink. What that’s doing to your teeth is just bathing your teeth and sugar causing a constant acid attack on your teeth the entire time of the sport activity. Pretty much the biggest way really healthy people can have bad and bad teeth with a lot of calories.
This is an important topic to me because young people drinking their energy drinks throughout maybe a party or just with their friends and sipping on their energy drinks or playing computer games. It’s, you know, you could be damaging your health not just by sitting there or by drinking the alcohol but by the sugary beverage bathing your teeth in that sugar.
So, you know, if you want to prevent cavities. A big, big way is to keep on your beverages, how long you’re spending with those beverages, especially if they have sugar in them, even a little bit of sugar. Like a little bit of, a little bit, just a teeny bit of honey in your tea or honey in your coffee and then sipping that coffee all day. You’re still bathing your teeth in sugar so, keep an eye out for those examples or any time that you have sugary beverages on your teeth because that can be a big cause of cavities.
