Should you drink more water? Of course you should! Let’s look at some of the oral health-related benefits to drinking water.
-If your tap water contains fluoride, drinking it on a regular basis can help prevent tooth decay. At this time, 9,229,015 people in Ontario have access to fluoridated water!
-Drinking water instead of pop or sugary carbonated beverages is a much better alternative for your teeth. Sugary drinks, such as cola or juice, can cause cavities if you don’t brush your teeth soon afterwards. Water contains no sugar, and can actually help remove some food particles from your teeth.
-By swishing some water in your mouth, you can help reduce the amount of plaque that’s on your teeth. According to this study that occurred in 2013, pulling water apparently has the same effects as pulling oil.
We hope your convinced. When it comes to beverages there’s nothing much better for your health or your teeth than water!
