Staying Hydrated This Summer Will Also Help Protect Your Teeth


Posted on 8/9/2021 by Dr. Dani Stansell
Staying Hydrated This Summer Will Also Help Protect Your TeethHydration is important any time of year. In the summer, it is important to consume foods that will hydrate your body. Watermelon is a common food in the summertime. It is tasty and quenches your thirst. Similarly, it is vital to your body to drink water to stay hydrated as well as protect your teeth. Water is the best beverage to drink for your overall health.

Drinking Water is Important


Drinking water each day is important to your oral health. The tap water in the United States contains fluoride and it provides benefits to your teeth with each sip. Fluoride helps to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride also works with your saliva to prevent plaque from forming on your teeth.

Another benefit of drinking water is the fact that it washes away the food you eat and does not leave debris for bacteria to invade. Water is a great natural cleaner for your mouth! Since water does not contain sugar, it does not destroy your enamel like sugary beverages. Choose to drink water over sugary energy drinks or fruit juice this summer. Water leaves your mouth clean, and it also protects your teeth.

Water Gives Life to Your Mouth


Drinking water is one of the easiest and most beneficial things you can do to be proactive in your oral health goals. Water strengthens your teeth and prevents bacteria from colonizing on the surface of your teeth. Over time, you will see less cavities in your mouth if bacteria do not have a food source to consume. 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.
