How Tap Water Can Keep Your Teeth Healthier


Posted on 5/24/2021 by Brier Creek
How Tap Water Can Keep Your Teeth HealthierDrinking tap water can help your teeth stay healthy. Tap water is fluoridated, meaning it contains the required minerals to keep your teeth healthy. Water is essential for your mental health as it will keep your mouth hydrated, strengthen your teeth, and help keep your mouth clean.

Tap Water Strengths Your Teeth


Just by drinking tap water, you will be strengthening your teeth. Tap water contains fluoride, a naturally occurring mineral that helps prevent tooth decay. This mineral also plays a vital role in keeping your teeth healthy and strong. For the best results, we advise that you combine water with fluoride toothpaste. We also recommend that you brush at least twice a day. Not only will this give you a sparkling smile but also strengthen your teeth.

Keeps Your Mouth Hydrated


Lack of saliva feels horrible and can leave your teeth vulnerable to tooth decay and bacteria attack. Saliva is made of 99% water; therefore, drinking plenty of tap water ensures that your mouth produces enough saliva to protect your teeth. Saliva helps wash away leftover food, swallow with ease, and keeps teeth healthy. Tap water helps wash your teeth with fluoride, phosphate, and calcium. Tap water contains most of these minerals, making it extremely important. Therefore, anytime you feel that your mouth is dry, drink a glass of water to help it rehydrate.

Keeps Your Mouth Clean


In the course of the day, sugar and residue from the food you eat can get stuck to your teeth. If it is not removed, the bacteria in your mouth turns it into acid, which can wear away your teeth' enamel. This is why it is essential to drink water after eating to remove any food particles in your mouth. It also helps dilute the acid present in your mind, reducing the chances of tooth decay.

Therefore, do you have any more questions about the use of tap water for your oral health? If so, visit our offices for more information and guidance on the best water drinking habits.
