It sure can be hot in the Dallas area. We all know we need to keep hydrated. Our bodies tell us many times of the need for fluids. We may obtain our hydration from many fluids. It is important to understand what is best. I understand water may be tasteless and it does not contain the ingredients we may feel we need to prepare or to recharge. However, water is best for your teeth.
It is boring to consider only water for re-hydrating. I understand. But so many fluids may be acidic or they may contain sugars. Consuming other fluids for several hours of time daily over many days may cause problems such as decay or sensitivity. We see this at my office quite often. Water is best for the teeth.
We understand there are other fluids that provide other advantages. These advantages may include minerals or electrolytes, or something else. We are not asking patients not to take advantage of those fluids. In a relatively short period of time of consumption, any fluid of your choice is fine. However, if you will be sipping or drinking multiple times during a sporting event or activity over hours of time, water is the fluid we recommend. In this way, you will not be bathing your teeth in acids and sugars over long periods of time.
