Water is not only a good beverage for removing waste from our body, giving our skin a healthy glow and distributing nutrients, water is also beneficial to our dental health.
There are a number of things that water does to help keep our mouth clean, including:
• Water helps clean some of the bacteria from our mouth that can harm our teeth
• Fluoride in water has been shown to protect children’s teeth from cavities
• Water helps fight the issues associated with dry mouth
You want to make sure that you’re practicing proper dental hygiene every day. Water is a good beverage for helping us keep our mouth healthy but it is not a substitute for brushing and flossing.
If you are due for a cleaning or have any questions about your dental health, such as issues with dry mouth, be sure to schedule an appointment with Dr. Aerni in Strongsville, OH.
