Sports drinks

In the last decade, #sports beverages have become increasingly popular, but they aren't great for your teeth.

Research has found that the pH levels in many sports #drinks could lead to tooth #erosion due to their high concentration of acidic components, which could wear away at the #tooth's #enamel. Additionally, these drinks are often high in sugars that act as "food" for acid-producing bacteria, which then sneak into the cracks and crevices in your teeth, causing #cavities and tooth #decay.

7 Surprising Things That are Bad for Your Teeth
1. Chewable Vitamins
Chewable #vitamins may have the #nutrients you need to stay healthy, but since they come in a sticky, sugary form, they’re as harmful for your teeth as chewy candy.
2. Dried Fruit
Dried fruit is chock-full of non-cellulose fiber that traps sticky sugar on your #teeth and #gums.
3. Cough Medicine
Cough medicine and throat lozenges often contain a lot of sugar or high fructose corn syrup, which is bad news for your oral health. And if you take your medicine right before you go to bed, this means the sugar can linger in your mouth all night and slowly erode your teeth.
4. White Wine
Wine, like #coffee/#tea, contain tannins, acids and chromogens, which are a trifecta for #staining teeth.
White wine is highly acidic, the #acid can break down important minerals in your teeth that help protect the enamel from #erosion, like calcium.
5. Swimming Pools
Chemical additives in pool water, like antimicrobials and chlorine, make the water acidic This acidity can lead to tooth #sensitivity and the growth of brown tartar deposits on your teeth.
6. Barbecue Sauce
Barbecue sauce can be full of sugar, which is bad news for your oral health. Just like barbecue sauce clings to meat, it clings to the #enamel and marinates your teeth with sugar.
7. Oral Piercings
A tongue or lip piercing could potentially crack or chip a tooth if you accidentally bite down on either, or by repetitively hitting against your tooth #enamel.

How does #xylitol prevent #cavities?
Xylitol inhibits the growth of the bacteria that cause cavities. It does
this because these bacteria (Streptococcus mutans) cannot utilize
xylitol to grow. Over time with xylitol use, the quality of the #bacteria
in the #mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria
survive on tooth surfaces. Less #plaque forms and the level of #acids
attacking the #tooth surface is lowered.
