A Smile-Friendly Benefit of “Going Green”

Image collected on a PmWikiIf you are among the many Americans who’ve taken an interest in doing your part to preserve our planet’s natural resources, the office of Muncie, Anderson, and Noblesville Dentist, Dr. Pyle salutes you!

Perhaps your “green” efforts have included giving up drinking disposable bottled water in favor of drinking tap water from reusable containers. If this is the case, we’ve got good news! Aside from doing your planet a favor, you may also be benefiting the health of your smile!

For decades, the American Dental Association has promoted the use of fluoride in public water supplies. Fluoride in approved levels has been shown to help in the prevention of dental decay. Unfortunately, most brands of bottled water do not contain fluoride, while many public water supplies do. So, drinking tap water from a glass or reusable receptacle can deliver safe, effective levels of fluoride, which along with a healthy diet and excellent oral hygiene helps keep your teeth decay free!

For more information on ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy, contact Muncie and Noblesville Dentist, Dr. Greg Pyle today. We can’t wait to hear from you!
