Woman with a glass of waterIt’s been found that around 70-75% of American adults suffer from chronic dehydration. Being chronically dehydrated will eventually cause health problems and can also be damaging to your dental health as well. Water is important to helping strengthen the tooth enamel, fighting dry mouth, and washing away bacteria and food particles.

Simple Tips on How to Drink More Water

If you’re concerned that you and your family aren’t drinking enough water, you’re not alone. Luckily, there are a few simple ways to increase the amount of water you’re drinking every day. Below are a few tips:

  • Keep water bottles everywhere – Keep a container of water in the car, one at the office, one in your backpack, and one in the fridge at home! Instead of using plastic water bottles, we recommend reusable containers as they’re much better for the environment. You’re much more likely to drink water if it’s available and in front of you.
  • Drink water for a better complexion – If your oral and overall health isn’t motivation enough to drink more water, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s great for your skin! Drinking more water can improve your complexion and add a healthy glow!
  • Have a full glass before dinner – Lastly, drinking a full glass of water before dinner will help you stay hydrated and can also help you lose weight. Drinking a glass of water before you eat will help you feel full and consume fewer calories.
