At the office of Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Arthur Glosman, we realize how dedicated you are to taking an active role in preserving our planet’s natural resources. If going green hasn’t already motivated you to ditch your bottled water, have we got news for you: Drinking bottled water could be harming your teeth!
The American Dental Association (ADA) has endorsed the fluoridation of public water supplies to prevent tooth decay and promote oral health. For many decades, fluoride has been recognized as a safe, effective way for the prevention of tooth decay. The toothpaste in your medicine cabinet probably contains fluoride, and perhaps your brand of mouthwash as well. Your dental office also offers concentrated fluoride treatments which can be performed during your regular check up visit.
But if you’re still primarily getting your eight glasses of water per day from bottled water, chances are you are missing out on optimal levels of decay preventing fluoride! So, do your planet a favor while making the right decision for your dental health. Next time, go for the tap!
And be certain to contact expert Beverly Hills Dentist Dr. Arthur Glosman with all of your dental concerns and questions. We can’t wait to hear from you.
