A simple way for dental patients to choose beverages that won’t harm their teeth is to keep it simple and make water their go-to drink. However, for safety, thrift, and convenience, many choose to drink bottled water or filter it themselves at home.
Filtered water affects oral health if it doesn’t contain fluoride. Fluoride prevents tooth decay.
If you choose bottled water and wonder if any naturally occurring fluoride has been removed, 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 in your water and benefitting your teeth.
