Beware of Sports Drinks

Due to the high sugar content and acids in sports drinks, they have erosive potential and the ability to dissolve even fluoride-rich enamel, which can lead to cavities.

To minimize dental problems, children and adolescents should avoid sports drinks and hydrate with water before, during and after sports.
If sports drinks are consumed:
reduce the frequency and contact time
swallow immediately and do not swish them around the mouth
neutralize the effect of sports drinks by alternating sips of water with the drink
rinse mouthguards only in water
