4 Drinks that Help Keep Teeth Healthy

Keep yourself hydrated with these drinks that are not only refreshing, but are also good for your teeth.

Milk

The calcium in milk keeps your teeth and bones strong. If you are lactose-intolerant, go for lactose-free options which can still give you all the calcium-packed goodness of milk.

Water

water bottles

Aside from quenching your thirst, water helps keep your teeth and mouth healthy by rinsing away food pieces. Even hard to reach areas such as the back of the mouth and in between teeth can be rinsed with water to keep the mouth clean.

Tea

Clear green or white tea can cleanse the mouth and teeth, much like water does. It is best to stick to clear teas because the dark ones can stain your teeth. Tea also helps stimulate the healthy production of saliva so you can prevent having a dry mouth, which can lead to bad breath and other dental problems.

Fruit Juice

Go for the real, freshly-squeezed kind and that is packed with all the nutrients found in fruits. Stay away from bottled or packaged drinks that are mostly sugar and other preservatives.
