Researchers are working to learn more about why mouths regularly exposed to pool water can become stained and have an excessive build up of tartar. A condition known as swimmer's mouth. Research is showing a correlation between the pH of the pool water and the symptoms of swimmer's mouth in those who spend extended periods of time in the pool water.
Prevention is key to avoiding swimmer's mouth, especially for swimmers who maintain an intensive training schedule. See your dentist at least every six months, use a fluoridated toothpaste and mouthwash, and keep your teeth as clean as possible.
