A simple way to choose beverages that won’t harm your teeth is to keep it simple and make water your go-to drink. But Winston-Salem Dental Group dentists caution you that there’s a down side to filtered water.
Filtered water can be detrimental to oral health if it doesn’t contain fluoride, which is a great tooth decay preventer.
If you choose bottled water and are wondering if any naturally occurring fluoride has been removed, you can check the label. If you prefer to filter your own tap water, look to see if the American Dental Association has given the filter its seal of approval.
Water filters that carry the ADA seal don’t remove fluoride, so you can be sure that the fluoride is still there, helping to strengthen your teeth.
