Water does a lot of wonderful things, and this includes helping keep our mouth healthy.
Water helps our bodies in many ways, including keeping our skin healthy and distributing nutrients, but did you know water is also great for our dental health? Water helps our teeth in a number of ways, including:
• Children’s teeth benefit from the fluoride found in water
• Drinking water can help wash away harmful bacteria and germs from our mouth
• Water helps keep our mouth hydrated and helps combat issues associated with dry mouth
Although water is an excellent way to stay hydrated and can help aid in our goal of keeping our mouth healthy, it is not a substitute for proper brushing and flossing. Proper dental hygiene is key to keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
