Cool Down Because It’s National Iced Tea Day

glasses of iced tea

With it being so hot out, today is the perfect to announce National Iced Tea Day.

Unfortunately, tea contains tannin which is a, “yellow or brownish substance found in plants that gives your tea color.” That means, it can stain your teeth. Brush afterward or rinse your mouth if you plan on drinking tea.

If you like sweet tea, the acid can erode your teeth. Skip the lemon, sugar and honey.

Not a Tea Fan? Drink Water!

Helps keep your mouth clean – Drinking water does not replace brushing and flossing, but it can help wash away food particles and keep your saliva levels high.

Strengthens your teeth- In some countries, tap water contains added fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral known for being effective at preventing cavities and tooth decay. The right amount of fluoride in your water can help strengthen your teeth.

Prevents Dry Mouth- Your saliva is 99% water! If you don’t drink water regularly, you can get dry mouth. Dry mouth is a condition in which the salivary glands don’t produce enough saliva to keep your mouth wet, and it can cause you to have difficulties chewing or swallowing.
