Drinking More Water Protects Your Teeth - Myth or Fact?

Drinking More Water Protects Your Teeth - Myth or Fact?

Oral Hygiene steps like brushing your teeth, flossing daily, and going to your dentist in Orange Country for dental visits can help you maintain your oral health. But there is one more secret that can help you to have a healthy set of teeth. It's none other than 'water.' Our body constitutes 60% water, which means keeping yourself hydrated can help you get rid of waste in your body, provide you glowing, healthy skin, etc.

Let's share with you some details about the benefits of drinking more fluoridated water for your teeth:

1. Get strong teeth.

We live in a country with clean drinking water readily accessible. Certain surveys and studies have proven that drinking fluoridated water is a great beneficial way of preventing cavities.

2. Drinking water is good for your whole body.

After having a good meal, you might probably want to drink juice or soda, but they have a bad impact on your teeth as they are really high in sugar. Instead, if you choose water, you can get a healthy body and teeth.

3. Water is a good mouth cleanser.

Drinking water can wash away the leftover food particles in your mouth, and so they act as a good cleanser. If you let the food particle as it is, then the cavity-causing bacteria will start eating sugar in your mouth and produce acid that affects your tooth enamel. This may, over time, result in cavities.

4. Keep your gums hydrated.

Both your teeth and gums matter. Not looking after your gums may cause dental health issues like gingivitis, tooth loss, or periodontal disease, which may affect your overall health. If you have any health condition or you are on certain medications, then discuss it with our dentist in Orange County to check it affects your oral health in any way.

5. Goodbye to dry mouth!

Saliva present in your mouth is what prevents dry mouth. When your mouth cannot produce enough saliva, it might make it hard for you to swallow and chew your food. Saliva is also your mouth's natural defense against tooth decay. Drinking sufficient water can prevent dry mouth and ensure enough saliva production.
