Dehydration and Dry Mouth
If your mouth gets dry regularly, your teeth can suffer. Saliva helps with many potential dangers to your teeth. First, saliva has antibacterial properties to reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in your mouth. Second, saliva can neutralize acid, reducing the impact of acidic foods and drink on your teeth. Finally, your saliva has minerals that help your teeth strengthen themselves. It’s the closest thing we have to healing teeth. It’s a slow process, but your teeth can weaken without it.
Try not to get dehydrated too often. If you regularly experience dry mouth, talk to your doctor or dentist about solutions.
