Coconut Water Can Help Boost Your Oral Health

Posted on 8/15/2018 by Matt Aldridge DDS
Coconut Water Can Help Boost Your Oral HealthCoconut water is an ideal drink for oral and overall health. Coconut water works to eliminate toxins from the body, so with regular consumption, you should feel better internally and notice digestive system improvements.

Also, if you have concerns about your dental health, you may be happy to note that coconut water offers some benefits to your teeth and gums.

Replace Your Body's Electrolytes

One of the best benefits of drinking coconut water is that you'll help to replace electrolytes in your body. After oral or dental surgery, this may be especially helpful. The cells in your body require electrolytes to control the stability of the cell membrane, and they care the vital electrical charges needed for contractions of the muscles.

With coconut water, you'll be able to cut out sugary sports drinks from your diet. Not only are these beverages loaded with harmful sugars, but they also increase the acidity of the mouth. High acidity can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion, so replacing these drinks with coconut water is a great step for improved oral health.

Remove Oral Bacteria

Coconut water has the ability to remove harmful bacteria from the mouth. These include the bacteria that lead to gum disease. Left unchecked, bacteria levels in the mouth can soar, leading to gingivitis, gum recession, and even infected gum pockets.

Other Benefits of Coconut Water

In addition to improving the health of your smile, there are other great benefits to coconut water:

•  A good source of antioxidants
•  A natural diuretic
•  Low in calories to promote weight loss
•  Offers anti-aging benefits
•  Feeds friendly gut bacteria

Remember that drinking coconut water should never be a substitute for good oral hygiene and regular checkups with your dentist. The American Dental Association recommends dental cleanings and evaluations every six months for optimal oral health. Call us today to set up your next appointment.
