Pour Me A Glass: Hydration Strengthens Teeth

Staying hydrated by drinking water throughout the day offers a myriad of crucial health boosters and benefits. Did you know that strengthening your teeth is one of these benefits?

That’s right— Especially if the drinking water contains fluoride, this is an extremely effective (and easy) way to prevent cavities and tooth decay.

The tap water in most localities contains the mineral fluoride. Both the American Medical Association and the American Dental Association stand behind water fluoridation as one of the most important public health measures for the 20th century.

In addition, by drinking water, a person clears away washes away any remnants of food. Doing this with regularity can help to minimize risks of cavity-causing bacteria that can wear away the enamel in the mouth.

Saliva, too, helps to clear away leftover debris from food in your mouth. And, drinking water on a regular basis helps to sustain a constant, optimal production of salvia within the mouth.

The bottom-line— Stay hydrated! Your teeth will thank you.
