February is Children’s Dental Health Month. Of course, drinking Louisville pure tap® makes us smile throughout the year — it tastes great and keeps our bodies healthy! But did you know that drinking water also plays a big role in dental health?
Tap water contains fluoride—or as we like to call it, “nature’s cavity fighter.” Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Drinking water throughout the day is an easy way to protect your teeth. Plus, proper hydration helps to prevent dry mouth and other unpleasant symptoms, like bad breath!
Water is also a great mouth cleaner! Unlike sugary drinks, drinking water after a meal helps wash away the leftover food and residue that cavity-causing bacteria love to eat. Choosing pure tap helps fight these unwanted bacteria and keeps cavities at bay.
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget the important role that water plays when we brush our teeth. Pure tap and toothpaste are the perfect pair for a healthy smile! Remember to always brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. Need a refresher on brushing techniques, flossing, and other healthy tips? Check out this video!
