Dentists who examined 278 athletes at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London reported that a majority displayed "poor oral health," including high levels of tooth decay, often in conjunction with gum disease and erosion of tooth enamel. Most of the athletes had access to good-quality dentistry, although many had not visited a dentist in the last year. While some might assume that sugary sports drinks were to blame, that wasn't the case. What they found was that when the athletes worked out, the amount of saliva that they produced progressively lessened, meaning that their mouths became drier and more alkaline. Excess alkalinity in saliva is thought to contribute to the development of tartar plaques on teeth and other problems.
