Can Water Help With Your Gum Disease Treatment?


Posted on 12/20/2018 by David Mugford
Can Water Help With Your Gum Disease Treatment?If you suffer from gum disease, it is important to seek out treatment. Left untreated, gum disease will only get worse. It can cause not only problems with your oral health, but also with your overall health.

Treatment for gum disease depends on how severe the problem is, but it is treatable. Some parts of the treatment will surprise people. Many do not realize that part of the treatment involves drinking water.

The Benefits of Water

You cannot live without water. Health professionals suggest drinking 6-8 glasses of water every day. If you exert yourself or are sweating more than normal, your body needs more water. The blood, the brain and the bones of your body have a high-water content. As that water evaporates, it needs replacement. Some of the benefits of water include:

•  Boosting metabolism
•  Regulating body temperature
•  Relieving pain
•  Balancing PH levels
•  Cardiovascular health

These are just some of the ways that water is important to the body.

Water and Gum Disease

The cause of gum disease is the growth of bacteria on the teeth and gums. The way to prevent gum disease is removing that bacteria. Brushing and flossing can do this, but water is another tool to use. Drinking water can flush the debris and particles that are caught in or on the teeth and gums. This can happen many times throughout the day to help support the brushing and flossing.

It is also possible to use water to rinse the gums. When combined with salt or peppermint oil, it can reduce inflammation connected to gum disease.

Do not confuse water with other drinks. Sodas, sports drinks and other liquids contain other things besides water that can damage the teeth and gums. Water is the best thing to drink at any time of the day.

For more information about this and other oral health issues, contact the professionals at our offices today.
