Healthy Teeth Are Important

Healthy teeth are a must in life and it should be a priority to maintain them in the best condition possible at all times.  In order to do so, you must acquire knowledge on what are the best habits to ensure that your teeth will be in good shape at all times and will not fail you in the most inappropriate moments.  Such as, getting a toothache in the middle of an important event or missing moments of your life due to quick tooth decay.

Preventing Tooth Decay

Sugary beverages are a common factor in patients showing signs of quick decay in their teeth which can only lead us to advise against the constant consumption of them.

Most people neglect the consumption of just water.  Water is the one drink that should always be in your life.  If you don’t consume water, many aspects of your health are at risk, not just your teeth. Unfortunately,  people tend to confuse the feeling of satisfying thirst with the appropriate hydration of the body and only consume sports drinks that fill their need of drinking something and getting the feeling of fullness from it.  Advertisements have done their part very well by making people think that sports drinks aren’t harmful at all.

If you live a very active life and engage in at least one hour a day of sports activity then you will need a hydration level that can only be obtained by consuming considerable amounts of water.  If you only consume sports drinks which promise the fast recovery of electrolytes that you lose while sweating, then you are in a path that can be negative in all forms, as sports drinks can have up to 21 grams of sugar per every 12 ounces.

Sugar combined with the acidity in the drinks are a cause of quick decay in your teeth.  You might never have noticed how acidic these drinks can be but we can tell you that they are very high in PH levels due to the fact that citric acids are added to them in order to make their shelf life longer.

Researchers have found that the combination of sugar and acids lead to a weakening of the enamel of your teeth, which is the hard, white, and shiny substance that covers your teeth, keeping cavities away.

If you are an athletic person, then the drink of choice to quench your thirst and stay hydrated should be plain water.  For more info on how to maintain healthy teeth or to schedule an appointment with us, please visit https://westcobbdentistry.com/.
