Drinking Louisville Pure Tap™ always makes us smile. It tastes great, helps keep our bodies healthy, and is always there when we need it – fresh from the faucet! But did you know that drinking water also plays an important role in dental health? As we celebrate Children’s Dental Health month this February, take a look at all the ways Pure Tap helps keep your pearly whites healthy and strong!
For starters, 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, staying hydrated helps to prevent dry mouth and other unpleasant symptoms, like bad breath!
Water can also help to keep your mouth clean. Unlike sugary drinks, drinking water after a meal helps wash away the leftover food and residue that cavity-causing bacteria love to eat. A tall glass of Pure Tap can help fight these unwanted bacteria and keep cavities at bay.
Last but certainly not least, we can’t forget the instrumental role that water plays when we brush our teeth. Pure Tap and toothpaste are the perfect pair for a healthy smile! The American Dental Association advises brushing 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!
