Do I Drink Enough Water? (Quiz)
If you don’t drink enough water, the consequences can be far worse than thirst. You could end up with dry mouth, an unpleasant condition that makes you more susceptible to cavities.
While our dentists can suggest products that will ease the symptoms of dry mouth, drinking plenty of water is the best way to avoid it. Plus, it benefits your overall health too. Staying hydrated is especially important in the summer months, because your body loses more water through sweating. A good rule of thumb is to consume at least half an ounce of water for every pound you weigh.
