Hydration and Oral Health
Ensuring you are well hydrated is important for your teeth and gums.
As we always state and of course by now you know, 80% of the human body is made from water, this should perhaps, tell us something about the importance of keeping hydrated. Well you would think!
A simple thing such as drinking sufficient water with elete Holistic Hydrate can make a big difference in how we feel, again we know that to be a fact. Many doctors too have noted that we are often dehydrated before we actually feel that we are, crazy but true so drink as a matter of course and not wait for your body to scream at you for help!
So, what does this have to do with our teeth?
Dry mouth – Big Problem
One of the more noticeable signs of dehydration is a dry mouth. Some of us will have experienced this when waking in the morning after a night out. The combination of alcohol and insufficient water intake can make our mouths feel very dry indeed, we can also experience this when travelling on long journeys or after participating in strenuous physical exercise.
Whilst this is unpleasant in itself, it also means that for the duration of time when the mouth has been dry, the mouth has been able to provide a warm and dry environment where gingival bacteria can breed. It is this gingival bacteria, when allowed to get out of control, that contributes to gum disease, one of the major causes of tooth loss. This can also lead quickly on to Early gum disease!
