Water - Good For Your Body And Your Smile!

Posted By Kristi DeWitt-Quintero, Delta Dental of AZ, Monday, July 23, 2018
Updated: Thursday, July 12, 2018

 

Water is one of the most important nutrients for the body. It hydrates, detoxifies, and supports many essential chemical processes in your body. But did you know it can also help keep your mouth healthy?

Saliva, which is composed of 98 percent water, lubricates and neutralizes harmful bacteria that could potentially damage your mouth. When your body is not getting enough water, your salivary glands produce less saliva creating an ideal breeding ground for the microbes that can cause bad breath, gingivitis and cavities.

Drinking plenty of fresh water is the best way to stay hydrated.

Many popular energy and sports drinks contain sugar, which can have negative effects on your teeth. If you do choose to drink a beverage containing sugar, consider these smile-saving tips.

  • Drink beverages containing sugar through a straw held at the back of the mouth, away from the teeth.
  • Rinse your mouth with water after drinking acidic beverages.
  • Reduce the frequency of ingesting these types of drinks.

 

Whether you’re working out or just hanging out, be sure to drink plenty of water and take proper precautions if you choose alternative beverages. It’s the best way to do what’s good for your mouth!
