Why Tap Water?

The 2017 theme for National Children’s Dental Health Month is “Choose Tap Water For a Sparkling Smile.” 

What’s the big deal about tap water?

Have you ever compared a child to a hummingbird? They seem to be drawn to sugary, sweet drinks whenever they get thirsty. But the fact of the matter is, although those drinks taste delicious, they are not doing a child’s developing teeth any favors. The extra sugars linger in the mouth, which means cavities can develop faster.

The best thing for a child (and adult!) to drink is tap water. Water is hydrating, stain-free, and sugar free! It doesn’t introduce any extra bacteria to the mouth, and can even contain fluoride, which helps protect the teeth from cavities.

Make the smart choice for your teeth: Drink Water!
