How Much Water Does Your Mouth Really Need Each Day?

Posted on 11/20/2017 by Front Office
Water National Dental Hicksville NY 11801-5062
You know that you need water to help in various body functions including hydrating the body system and distributing healthy nutrients. Water makes the skin glow and helps cleanse the gut.

Many people know that they need to drink water to keep healthy, but if you ask them if there is any relationship between drinking water and having healthy teeth, they will probably say they don't know. It's true that drinking water improves your oral health, but how?

Why Water is Good for Oral Health

You may take soda, juice, or sports drinks help in washing down your meal, but these drinks have sugars that may damage your teeth. Bacteria that cause tooth decay love eating sugar and release acids that damage the enamel. You may consider water instead of the sugary drinks.

With every sip of water, it helps clean your mouth. It washes away residues and food particles that are responsible for causing bacterial growth in your mouth. Taking water helps fight dry mouth. When there is inadequate saliva in mouth, you will have dry mouth. This may put you at risk of having tooth decay.

How Much Water Do you Need for Oral Health?

Your doctor tells you that you should drink 8 glasses of water in a day, but what does the dentist say about drinking water? Well, you will want to drink water every time.

Taking water through the day goes a long way in ensuring you have healthy gums and teeth. You will also want to brush and floss your teeth. It doesn't have to be 5 glasses, 8 glasses, or 12 glasses.

If you can have water throughout the day, you are helping your teeth and gums. In essence, when you drink water, you enhance saliva and keep your mouth moist.

Water also helps fight bad breath, which is caused by bacteria in the mouth. We can help in ensuring good oral health and care when you come to us. We care about your oral health than anyone else.

"My wife and I lived in New York for a few years before moving to Colorado. When we were there, our one and only dentist was Dr. Fischler at National Dental! I highly recommend his work, and if we're ever back that way, we'll make sure to stop in!"
~ Keith M.

"I have never had an issue with the staff. Everyone here is very friendly, which is extremely helpful when visiting the dentist. It makes for a much less stressful experience!"
~ Jenna P.
"I have not been to the dentist in over 20 years because of an extremely bad experience when I was a child. I HAD to go recently after I cracked a tooth! Dr. Fischler is so nice and works very quickly. He explains everything as he does it, and the entire procedure was 100% pain free. I couldn't believe it!"
~ Natalie D.
