Princeview Dental, One of Etobicoke’s Trusted Dental Clinics, Reacts to Ontario Dental Association’s Warning on Youth Drinking Sports Drinks
Date:9/27/2014

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 27, 2014

Princeview Dental (http://www.PrinceviewDental.com), one of Etobicoke’s premier dental clinics, is weighing in on the recent Ontario Dental Association (ODA) findings that sports drinks may be putting youth oral care at risk.

Dentists are seeing more and more oral health problems in young people visiting their dental clinics, and ODA President Dr. Jerry Smith believes that the issue possibly lies in the overconsumption of sports drinks. That’s because the sugar these drinks contain creates an ideal environment for bacteria to flourish in the mouth, leading to tooth decay. Dr. Smith goes on to say that the combination of acid with the sugars causes erosion of the enamel and that it might be a good idea to rinse with water immediately after consuming any sport drink.

“Tooth decay and other side effects of over-consuming sports drinks can lead to emergency dental services,” says Dr. Janice Mummery, founder of Princeview Dental. “Tooth decay is actually the most common childhood disease, five times more likely than asthma. It’s not a stretch to suggest that a child can end up in an emergency dental clinic if they do not take proper care of their teeth, and that means reducing their sports drink intake.”

Dr. Mummery encourages parents to give their children water as an alternative to sugary sports drinks to prevent the possible onset of tooth decay. Staying away from the sugar and acid in sports drinks is a good way to avoid any potential emergency dental services that may be needed to restore a child’s teeth.

“Tooth decay is preventable if proper steps are taken to ensure teeth and gums remain clean and healthy,” Dr. Mummery concludes. “Evidence shows that most children have enough electrolytes present in their bodies and don’t need the extra electrolytes that are inside of these sports drinks and drinking water is a sufficient enough method of hydration.”
