Hydration: The Key to Oral Health
A brief post but an important one,
Drinking plenty of water throughout the day keeps your mouth moist, washes away food particles, and helps maintain a healthy pH balance, all of which contribute to good oral health.
The recommended amount would be approximately 2 litres or 8 glasses, which may seem like alot but if you break it down as an example below
1 glass in the morning
1 bottle (2 glasses) to drink throughout the day,
to be refilled in the afternoon (2 glasses)
1 glass with lunch
1 glass with dinner
1 glass at the bedside table to drink at night
Dry mouth is a common condition that can affect oral health.
Using a humidifier, consuming sugar-free gum, and staying hydrated can help manage dry mouth and reduce its impact on your teeth.
