Tooth Decay: The Link between Sports Drinks and Enamel Damage

Tooth Decay: The Link between Sports Drinks and Enamel Damage

It’s a hard task to uphold the health of your teeth and gums daily to avoid certain oral health problems. On the other hand, many people nowadays are somewhat unmindful about their oral wellbeing and keep on doing things that can wreck their teeth.

Nowadays, it’s been a trend to consume sports drinks even though the person is not into sports, as long as one is thirsty, grabbing a bottle of sports drinks is not guilt anymore. On the other hand, dentists are becoming worried regarding the impact it can bring to the dental health of consumers especially the teenagers.

Tooth decay would probably be the most common tooth problem most dental experts encounter among patients attending their office. This could be due to the lifestyle of people, particularly with their diet, the kind of foods and beverages they consume in a day. Dental erosion is one of the many causes of tooth decay.

Based on research, sports drinks can provide more damage to enamel than sodas, juices and energy drinks do. Compared to others, sports drinks, aside from water and energy-giving ingredients, have high sugar content and citric acid, which are known to erode the enamel and dentin significantly.

With long-term use, the teeth get weak and are susceptible to decay. To prevent this, you must lessen your sugary drinks intake, choose for healthier foods and drink more water instead.

To keep your teeth for longer and avoid dental erosion that will lead to tooth decay, visit your trusted dentist in Northmead today.

Less Sugar Intake, Less Tooth Decay

Less Sugar Intake, Less Tooth DecayEven though people have put in extra attention to dental and oral wellness today, tooth decay continues to rank as one of the most common chronic illnesses.

In a study that was conducted worldwide, it was found that tooth decay has a global prevalence of 35 per cent. Here in Australia, up to 30 per cent of adults have untreated tooth decay.

In order to provide a means to solve this concern, it would be beneficial to address its causes first. One of the major contributors that should be tackled would be sugar consumption. Bacteria in your mouth feed off the sugars from the sweets that you and your children enjoy. As a result, plaque builds up and releases acids that damage the teeth.

For this reason, experts suggest that the sugar consumption will have to be always in check.

WHO’s Reminders On Sugar Intake

So as to address the harm that can be brought about by unregulated sugar intake, the World Health Orgnisation (WHO) established a set of guidelines. According to this, sugars should only sum up to 10 per cent of total energy intake. This is an equivalent of 50 grams of sugar in a day. Furthermore, WHO reiterates that the daily target should only be 5 per cent or 25 grams for a day.
