Celebrating National Children’s Dental Health Month

February is the month during which we celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month. Organizations like American Dental Association and ADA Foundation selected February to make people aware of oral health for children. A theme or a slogan is chosen for the every year’s celebration. This year "Choose Tap Water for a Sparkling Smile!" has gained the attention of the people. 

Why Choose Tap Water?

If you ponder on why tap water is essential for children,  we are here to provide better insight regarding the slogan. Tap water contains fluoride, which is an essential mineral for the teeth. It has protective properties that help to prevent an array of dental diseases. Regardless of age, it is beneficial to both adults and children. Tap water helps to prevent tooth decay by about 20% to 40%. Fluoride is valuable in the formation of the tooth. It is ingested and incorporated into the tooth structure of the child, which helps to increase the strength of the tooth. It also offers long-lasting benefits to the person. 

Drinking fluoridated water helps in increasing the concentration of fluoride in saliva. It helps to rebuild the tooth and remineralize the outer surface of the teeth. Both adults and kids who consume tap water have decreased need for fillings or tooth extractions. It, in fact, protects the teeth without any specific dental procedure.
