|Water, overall, is a great thing to have. You want to stay hydrated throughout the day, you want to give your body enough water to really work well and continue to provide the necessary functions it needs to provide.
It is recommended that you drink at least 8, 8-ounce glasses of water per day, more or less. It is good to keep up the water content of your body for your body and for your oral health. Tap water is especially beneficial to your health and should be consumed regularly, here's why.
Why is Tap Water Important?Tap water comes with many vitamins and nutrients that can provide your overall oral health with the benefits that it needs. Not only that, but when you drink tap water, you're also getting something called fluoride. This helps to strengthen the enamel on the teeth and provide healthier, stronger teeth overall. It is also a substance that is used to put on the outside of the teeth of children so that they last longer and remain stronger.
Those that do not have tap water and that drink well water usually look to using fluoride supplements for their oral health. This can also be found in toothpaste and mouth washes to provide the best possible agents to help the teeth grow strong and look their best. Smaller children benefit the most before their permanent teeth come in from the use of fluoride.
