Is water important for your teeth?

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Dallas Oral Surgery Associates
Is water important for your teeth?When it comes to the health of your teeth, even the minor details that seem unimportant are crucial. Your teeth are an important part of your overall wellness, and as such nothing should be left to chance. When you come to the clinic, we always give our patients educational tips that help them maintain perfect oral health. One of the ways you can ensure that you have strong healthy teeth is through drinking lots of water.

It Washes Away Food Particles

After you eat, there are food particles that can remain on the surface of your gums and teeth and beneath your tongue. This leftover food in your mouth can mix with bacteria in your mouth causing plaque. When the plaque is left to accumulate, it usually hardens forming tartar which is the primary cause for tooth decay and cavities. Therefore, when you drink plenty of water, you can prevent the formation of tartar and therefore can enjoy pristine oral health.

Dilutes and Washes Away Acids From Foods

When you eat acidic foods, our dentists recommend that you drink plenty of water to dilute and remove the acids from your mouth. Too much acidity in your mouth can result in tooth decay and cavities develop. You can take appropriate measures of limiting the erosive properties of acidic foods through hydration.

Fluoridated Water Can Strengthen Your Teeth

Fluoride is an important naturally occurring mineral that can be found in water. Fluoride, which is also contained in many toothpaste products, strengthens your teeth by a mineralization process. Therefore ensure that you drink fluoridated water to ensure that you have strong healthy teeth.

Maintain Regular Dental Visits

If you want to have perfect oral health, you must continue coming to the clinic for checkups and treatment. We will assist you in preventing teeth problems that can impact your dental and overall health.
