Johnsburg dentists, Dr. Laura Adams and Dr. Tom Kaczynski, say that water is the clear choice for dental and physical health.
According to WebMD, “The best beverage choices include water (especially fluoridated water), milk, and unsweetened tea. Limit your consumption of sugar-containing drinks, including soft drinks, lemonade, and coffee or tea with added sugar. Also, avoid day-long sipping of sugar-containing drinks — day-long sipping exposes your teeth to constant sugar and, in turn, constant decay-causing acids.“
Our Johnsburg dentists agree with the American Dental Association’s statement “Simply by drinking water, children and adults can benefit from fluoridation’s cavity protection whether they are at home, work or school.” Drinking tap water with fluoride can reduce the occurrence of cavities by 20 – 40%.
Water also helps your body by fueling your muscles, by replenishing fluids lost naturally during the day, by keeping your kidneys in good working order and by keeping your skin looking good! (If you are dehydrated, your skin will look dry and wrinkled.)
Ask our Johnsburg dentists at The McHenry Dentist about drinking water every day for better dental health and for a more healthy lifestyle.
