Benefits Your Mouth Gets When You Drink Tap Water

Posted on 7/12/2021 by Amy
Benefits Your Mouth Gets When You Drink Tap WaterMost health experts agree that drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your body. Arguably, water is the best beverage to drink for your overall health. When our body is hydrated, our organs function well and our skin glows. These are important perks for our body, but what does water do for our mouth?

Drinking Water Each Day is Important

Drinking water each day is important to maintain good oral health. The tap water in the United states has fluoride added to it and provides many benefits to your teeth. Fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride also works with your saliva to prevent plaque from forming on your teeth.

Another benefit of drinking tap water is the fact that it washes away the food you eat and does not leave anything for bacteria to munch on. Since water does not contain sugar, it does not destroy your enamel like sugar, but instead, it leaves your mouth clean.

Drinking water also helps fight against bad breath. The reason you have bad breath in the morning is because your mouth has been dry all night, and the bacterium inside your mouth smells bad. By drinking water, you can wash away food particles bacteria might otherwise consume and then cause havoc in your mouth.

You Can't Go Wrong with a Drink of Water

The truth is, sometimes we know what we should be doing, and sometimes we don't know what to do to benefit our oral health. If in doubt, it is best to grab for that fresh glass of water. If you have other questions on how to improve your oral hygiene, please call our office today to schedule your next dental exam and cleaning. We look forward to helping you have the best mouth possible.
