Infused waters are a terrific summer drink: they are hydrating but low in sugar. They are also very decorative!

This link to Food Network will provide you with many creative ideas. The acid in citrus fruits can be harsh on your teeth, so you may want to focus more on the non-citrus recipes. I think the Watermelon-Mint Water sounds especially delicious.

Another good reason to eat fruits and vegetables:
Antioxidants and nutrients found in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts improve your body’s ability to fight bacteria and inflammation, and help protect your teeth and gums from common oral disorders including gum disease. Crisp fruits and raw vegetables also help clean plaque from teeth and freshen breath.

You may be using more toothpaste than necessary. All you need is a pea-size amount. For kids younger than 3, stick with the size of a grain of rice.

The BASICS for healthy teeth and gums:
Brush for two minutes at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Be thorough, but gentle.

Floss every day. Your toothbrush alone can’t get the job done, especially between teeth and below the gum line.

Watch what you eat and drink. Cavity-causing bacteria love sugar. Limit snacking and sugary drinks.

See your dentist twice a year for an exam and cleaning.

“Sugar is fun to eat, but not good for your teeth!”
Why? Sugar is food for the bacteria that cause tooth decay.

William Addis invented the modern toothbrush in the 1780s while incarcerated in London’s Newgate Prison. Early models were made of bone and animal hair. Synthetic brushes were launched in 1940 using the American invention known as nylon.
The company Addis founded is still doing business 235 years later, as Wisdom Toothbrushes.
