Most tap water in the United States has fluoride added to it. Drinking fluoridated tap water strengthens your enamel. Fluoride, which is a mineral, has the potential to fight cavities. By just drinking throughout the day, you are helping your teeth.

Water also keeps your mouth clean in other ways. Drinking water rinses away food debris which can be lodged in your teeth. This helps to reduce the number of bad bacteria in your mouth. By reducing the number of bad bacteria in your mouth you are also being proactive against bad breath. Bad bacteria cause bad breath. Drink waster to keep your mouth clean.

Did you know that sometimes when you are hungry you are just thirsty? If you drank water before eating a snack you may find that your hunger wanes. Drinking water may be good for your mouth if you choose to drink water rather than snack on something sugary or starchy. Grab for a glass of water next time your stomach growls between meals.
