A simple way for Encinitas residents 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 dental patients choose to drink bottled water or filter it themselves at home.
Filtered water can be detrimental to oral health if it doesn’t contain fluoride, which is a great tooth decay preventer.
Drinking bottled water? Check the label to see if fluoride has been removed. Those who prefer to filter their own tap water should make sure the filter has the American Dental Association (ADA)’s 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.
