You might not spend too much time thinking about your water intake until you suddenly feel thirsty or until a doctor asks you how much H20 you consume on a daily basis. While it’s certainly good not to become completely preoccupied with your health, it’s also very important that you’re remaining hydrated. Not sure why your Corona dentist cares so much? We would love to discuss how water can make an impact on your smile and what to do about making sure you’re getting enough.
The Benefits Of Water For Oral Health
Your Corona dentist thinks you may be surprised by just how beneficial water can be for your oral health. For a quick way to begin understanding the details, we offer up specific benefits that will register with any patient:
- Water rinses the stuff off of your teeth and gums that encourages decay and inflammation (like bacteria and food)
- Water helps keep your mouth nice and moist, so bacteria (which thrive in a dry mouth) don’t accumulate
- Water helps prevent dry mouth (as mentioned), which means your chance of developing bad breath decreases
- Water won’t hurt your teeth, so you can drink it all day long
How Much To Drink For Hydration
You should be drinking around 64 ounces of water on a daily basis, which helps your body stay hydrated as well as your smile (from the inside out) for optimal oral health.
How To Tote It Safely
Disposable plastic water bottles are A-OK if you recycle them and use a fresh one each time you are ready for more water. If you like to reuse bottles (or carry tap water with you), your Corona dentist suggests you purchase a BPA-free bottle that is safe for daily re-use.
