Fluoride is nature’s natural cavity fighter and is most commonly found in drinking water. Fluoride has the ability to promote remineralization, which aids in repairing tooth decay before it can even develop. Water also helps replenish saliva which prevents us from having dry mouth discomfort. If you need more reasons to drink water on a daily basis, Dr. Michael Eisenbrock of Bensalem Family Dentistry is here to give you a few.
Saliva is the mouth’s first defense against tooth decay and water replenishes our saliva with every sip. Water not only washes away leftover food, it helps keep your teeth strong by washing them with calcium, phosphate, and fluoride. Unlike sugary beverages that harm your oral health and damage enamel, water improves your oral health.
