Did you know summer hydration includes your teeth?

Taking care of your mouth, teeth and gums is one of the most crucial aspects of living a healthy life. Poor oral hygiene can lead to  halitosis,(bad breath) gum disease, heart disease and a dehydrated mouth.

How do you hydrate a dehydrated mouth?

1.) Brush Your Teeth:

Brushing reduces the number of bacteria in your mouth and removes the sugars and bacterias that are in food.  Which in return, hydrates your mouth.

2.) Floss:

Flossing aids in making sure your gums stay strong, healthy and hydrated.

3.) Drink Water:

Drinking water will help you produce more bacteria-fighting saliva that will rehydrate your mouth.  Water also helps rinse out bacteria that hasn’t taken root on your teeth.

4.) Rinsing With Salt Water:

Salt water can immediately provide relief to sore gums by helping to dehydrate the harmful pathogens in your mouth. Salt helps kill bacteria that could later build up and become plaque or tartar.
