Why Water Quality Is Important for Oral Health

Water is essential to your health. It affects your skin and daily hydration and helps with routine tasks like bathing and washing clothes. We know it’s a basic human need, but does the quality play into your oral health?

Water Quality and Your Teeth 

The quality of your water can impact your oral health. Also, many beneficial minerals that contribute to your oral health are found in water. One such mineral is fluoride. This mineral helps your teeth resist decay, so many communities worldwide add it to their drinking water. 

Long-Term Effects of Poor Water Quality 

Without clean water, you could suffer from oral health problems. The range of issues you may develop because of poor water quality can vary and utilizing clean water in a dental office setting is essential to preventing waterborne illnesses.

Combating Waterborne Illnesses With Advanced Filtration Technology

As infectious disease regulations continue to change, organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are requiring higher compliance standards. This includes water that dentists use in their offices. To this end, many dental offices purchase distilled water or use an advanced filtration system.

Taking care of your oral health is paramount, and one of the best ways to do it is by going to a dentist that only uses the purest water. At David W. Piper, DMD Family Dentistry, we use a state-of-the-art water filtration system from Stersil to deliver uncontaminated water to every patient!

I've been a patient of Dr. Piper's for the last 19 years so it's very obvious that I've been a very very satisfied patient. I had an excellent full check-up today with x-rays and everything was perfect. Perfect because I've been going consistently and following their experts on dental care, cleaning and good health! Bravo 👏 👏 👏
