4 drinks to improve your oral health

A balanced diet is a factor that has a very beneficial influence on dental health.

On the one hand, as we have mentioned previously, some foods and drinks are harmful to our teeth. But on the other, there are others that do help improve your dental health.

Therefore, now that you know what foods to avoid, in today’s post we are going to tell you what drinks can help your dental health.

Drinks to maintain a healthy mouth

There are 4 very beneficial drinks for our dental health. You may already consume some of them and you are still not aware of the benefits they bring to your dental health, but don’t worry, we will tell you the benefits of water, milk, green tea and vegetable smoothies for your dental health.

  1. Water

The first and most beneficial drink is water, these are its main benefits:

  • Helps to eliminate food remains that may be in the mouth after a meal.
  • Dilute the acids produced by bacteria present in the mouth.
  • Helps prevent cavities and gingivitis.
  • It keeps us hydrated and prevents dry mouth.
  • As it does not contain sugar, it does not contribute to oral conditions related to sugar consumption such as cavities, the accumulation of plaque, tartar, gum inflammation or dental erosion.

Most water, whether bottled or from the tap, contains fluoride. Fluoride helps strengthen enamel and dentin, especially during periods of dental development.

  1. Milk

We continue with the second beneficial drink for your mouth, milk. This drink rich in calcium and vitamin D is a good ally to achieve a dental health of 10. We tell you why:

  • Milk benefits dental health and especially teeth due to the protein called casein, which belongs to the family of phosphoproteins. Casein has calcium and phosphorus that help form a small protective layer on tooth enamel.
  • Vitamin D in milk contributes to the absorption and utilization of calcium. Therefore, milk as a whole helps to prevent the loss of calcium when the teeth are exposed to acids, since on the one hand it provides calcium and on the other the necessary vitamin for the body to absorb it.
  1. Green tea

The third recommended drink for the benefit of your dental health is the delicious green tea. This has many benefits for our body, it is diuretic, it gives us energy and it can also be found in countless flavors.

In the case of oral health, green tea benefits for these reasons:

  • One of its antioxidant components is catechin, this component is very effective against the accumulation of bacteria that cause tartar on the teeth and the acidity of saliva.
  • Thanks to the control of bacteria, catechins also protect us from inflammation of the gums and bad breath.
  • However, excessive consumption can stain teeth due to tannins, but do not worry about proper dental hygiene, you can benefit from the properties of green tea without staining your teeth.
  1. Vegetable smoothies

Our last drink and probably the most appetizing are vegetable smoothies, these are high in vitamins B and K, these vitamins benefit dental health as follows:

  • Vitamin K helps the mineralization of teeth and contributes directly to reducing the risk of gingivitis.
  • Vitamin B helps the formation of new gum tissue, thus helping to improve the health of the gums and prevent periodontal diseases.

Some green leafy vegetables rich in vitamin B and K are chard, spinach, broccoli or rocket.

Keeping in mind what you drink and how you hydrate, it will be easier for you to control the appearance of stains and opt for drinks that help strengthen your dental health and feel better.
