What You Drink Can Damage Your Teeth. Dental Advice from Holland’s Dr. Jeffrey Huisman

added on: July 13, 2012

What do you use to rehydrate during and after exercise? Many people drink sports drinks, thinking they are protecting both their health and their teeth with a safer alternative to soda. Others drink sports drinks to replenish electrolytes and improve their performance. What they don’t realize is that, while they may be supplementing their sodium and potassium levels, they are also damaging their teeth!

Instead of a sports drink, why not try coconut water? This natural, whole food has no added sugars and is much less acidic than many other drinks and juices. Coconut water (not coconut milk or sweetened coconut drinks) contains only about 45 calories per cup and has more potassium than a banana. Protect your teeth – stop drinking sports drinks – and come see us for your regular check ups! If you are a dental patient in Holland Michigan, call me, Dr. Jeffrey T. Huisman, at 616-396-5919.
