Water is not only good for the waistline; it does wonders for oral health. Sugary beverages such as soft drinks, energy drinks, and juices may wash down your meal, but they provide no nutritional value to your teeth. Water, however, cleans the mouth with every sip by washing away acids that attack the teeth. If you’re looking for more reasons to drink water, Dr. Nick Mobilia of Elite Dental Arts is here to give you a few.
Drinking water has more benefits for teeth than bottled water. This is because tap water contains fluoride, also known as nature’s natural cavity fighter that contains elements that replenish enamel. Sugary beverages feed off the plaque that lingers on your teeth, so be sure to practice proper oral hygiene to prevent cavities. Though you can’t build a healthy mouth of drinking water alone, you’re doing yourself a favor by drinking as much as possible, for your smile and your overall health.
