How endurance training affects your oral health
from Team USA
Most of us take our teeth for granted. Yet, think about how important the functions your mouth performs for you: it’s the gateway for breathing, eating and drinking. The long digestive process begins in your mouth. Heavy mouth breathing during tough, long training sessions is common. The demands of endurance training, as well as the substances you put in your mouth impact the healthy function of both your teeth and your entire body. Turns out that endurance athletes are particularly susceptible to dental erosion and its far-reaching effects on our bodies.
