Make Mine A Water

 Our smiles are the window to our wider state of health and wellbeing. The drinks we choose can impact our dental health.

Children in particular should be encouraged to drink water to help embed healthy hydration habits from an early age, as well as older people who have a tendency to have reduced saliva production.

These are some of the many reasons why we're promoting the benefits of drinking water in our "drink up, keep healthy" summer campaign this week.

Here are some tips from the British Dental Health Foundation and the National Hydration Council to support dental health.

1. Drinking water is a good way to hydrate without exposing teeth to sugars.

2. Children should be encouraged to drink water from an early age to develop a taste for water.  Milk is also a good choice for children as it is a useful source of nutrients, especially B vitamins and calcium.

3. Older people who have a tendency to have reduced saliva production should be encouraged to drink water regularly.

4. Teeth should be brushed regularly last thing at night and at least one other occasion in the day, with a fluoride toothpaste.

5. Night time tooth brushing is especially important as saliva production slows down through the night.

6. Rinsing the mouth with water in between meals may help to remove food debris which could otherwise contribute to dental decay.
