FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Soccer is the #1 sport of oral health risk.

Soccer players have higher risk to develop dental caries and greater potential for oral and dental trauma

June 4, 2005 -- According to Swed-Dent-J (June 1990), soccer players on an elite level seem to have a higher risk to develop dental caries than non-players. Dental caries is associated with frequent use of sugar-containing products.

From 1998 to 2003, energy sports drink sales increased 465% (General Dentistry, 09/2004).

Some coaches recommend to sip 12-14 ounces of sports drink (30 grams of carbohydrate) 10-15 minutes before a match begins. During all periods of heavy training, soccer player should ingest 9-10 grams of carbohydrate per kilogram of body weight each day (International Journal of Sport Nutrition, 1994).

At the same, most dental injuries occurred during the soccer training sessions and matches reaching 41% of the total number of sport's injuries, and affected 6.6% of the soccer players. Only 27% of the participants were aware of the protective mouth-guards, and only 3% actually used these devices (Dent Traumatol, 2003).

We developed unique Soccer Player Essential  Oral Care Kit to compensate this increased risk.

Sports Drinks Ruin the Teeth

Sports energy drinks damage intact dental enamel on children and young adults

June 14, 2005 -- According to General Dentistry (September 2004), from 1998 to 2003, energy drink sales increased 465%. Children and young adults are the highest consumers of these drinks in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, Saudi Arabia, and New Zealand.

There are some types of Sports drink including 6 to 8% carbohydrates or more. Dental caries is associated with frequent use of sugar-containing products.

KMX energy drink rated the highest in damage to intact tooth structure at 84.80% compared to black tea; Snapple Classic Lemonade at 83.66%; Red Bull Energy Drink ranked at 61.14%;  Gatorade at 57.29%.

The study found that the total acid content of the drink rather than the average pH is the determining factor in enamel dissolution.

We developed unique Soccer/Basketball Player Essential  Oral Care Kit to compensate this increased risk of the teeth damage.
