Water and other kinds of drinks are essential in our everyday lives.
A drink is a typical part of every meal—whether it’s a glass of wine, water or juice, it helps you wash down your meal and leaves you feeling refreshed. And for sure, you love drinking various beverages to feed your thirsty appetite.
Still, have you ever thought about the potential damage (or benefits) your favorite drink has on your oral health?
Let’s break down the best and worst choices for your teeth.
As you may already know or heard, coffee’s dark color isn’t ideal for your pearly whites. However, a single cup of coffee in the morning won’t hurt that much as it isn’t going to harm your oral health. That is if you keep the sweetener away.
You’ve probably heard that milk helps to build healthy bones. Your teeth are no exception. Milk contains many minerals like calcium that aid in stopping cavity-forming bacteria.
Whether you have an occasional glass of red or white, neither are fantastic for your dental health. White wine contains more acid than red wine, which is bad news for your enamel. Many wines also have high sugar content.
Because most fruit juices are highly concentrated, more often than not you’re drinking something that’s highly acidic compared to fresh fruit. If you regularly drink juice, consider diluting it with water to help lessen the potential damage to your teeth.
Drink up more and more! Water is a necessity of life, and staying properly hydrated means you’re adequately producing saliva, which is required for good oral health and preventing your teeth from decaying.
Now that you know, be wary of the effects of your favorite drinks on order to help protect your teeth from any harm.
