Runner’s World (5/15, Kuzma) lists several ways runners may be harming their teeth, offering suggestions to help promote dental health. For example, the article states that runners may be “overdoing it on sugar in the name of fueling.” To help address this, the article recommends runners rinse their mouths out with water after consuming items such as gels and sports drinks, select “flavors without citric or tartaric acid,” and consume “a healthy diet and plenty of non-sugary beverages” during the rest of the day.
