Improve Your Oral Health by Drinking Only Water and Tea

Posted on 2/25/2017 by Dr Jonathan Ford

When you want to give your oral health a boost, you may want to consider cutting out all beverages other than water and tea. Both water and tea give your body the ability to help keep your mouth healthy, by giving it the nutrients it needs to fight off tooth decay, and by lowering the inflammation that comes with early stages of gum disease. Some teas are even able to help fight off bacteria that can hurt your gums.

Your Mouth Can Be Healthier By Only Drinking Water and Tea

When you drink a lot of water, your mouth gets healthier by default. First, your tissues are well hydrated. Second, your teeth are continuously getting washed off from a lot of the debris left behind when you eat. Third, your mouth is getting the fluoride it needs to fight tooth decay, if that water comes from a city tap.

When you add tea into the mix, you are also able to add another layer of protection against tooth decay into the mix. Plus, tea is known to lower the levels of acid you have in your mouth.

Tea is naturally anti-inflammatory, and many varieties are also anti-bacterial, helping to keep gum disease at bay. Tea helps to improve your breath, and it fills your mouth with antioxidants, allowing you to be less prone to many types of oral cancers.

If you want to keep your weight down, keep your mouth healthy, and boost your overall immunity, then switch to drinking nothing but water and tea. It will help you get the healthy mouth you want, and the type of results your dentist has been hoping for.

Contact our office if you have any questions about what you can do to help improve your oral health aside from this change. You may be surprised at the little things you can do.
