How Does Your Drinking Water Effect Your Dental Health?

We all know that water is important to your overall health. It is important to keep hydrated so that your body can work properly, and get rid of wastes etc. There is another benefit to drinking clean water–dental hygiene.

There have been many studies about the effect of fluoride on dental health. Some studies say that fluoride doesn’t effect tooth decay and others do. But, in looking over these studies, you can clearly see that fluoride in your water does have a positive effect on tooth health.

Clean drinking water also has an effect on dental health. There are many studies on areas without clean drinking water. There is a study in Indonesia of an area that does not have access to clean and safe drinking water and the children in this area from 5 to 7 years old, predominantly had some form of tooth decay. The water had no fluoride, high manganese, and high acidity, which all contributed to the poor dental health in this area.

So, it is important to ensure that you drink clean and safe drinking water for your dental and overall health.
