Your guide to healthy summer hydration
Do you know the 8-8 rule? That is, drink 8, 8-ounce glasses of water each day. The Institute of Medicine, by way of the Mayo Clinic, notes men and women should drink 9 and 13 cups daily. All beverages count. As the weather heats up, the amount of fluid lost through sweating naturally goes up as does the need to replenish those fluids.

The type of beverage matters. As dentists, we understand drinks that are good for your body are often tooth-friendly. Many energy drinks contain lots of sugar and caffeine, which promote obesity and conditions like diabetes. With the abundance of flavored waters on the market, it’s not enough to reach for a product labeled “water.”

Like energy drinks, many of these beverages get their yummy flavors from citrus or other fruit acids that wreak havoc on protective enamel. When carbonation is added, flavored water is doubly damaging due to the acidity associated with carbonated beverages like soda. Eat don’t drink mango. If you prefer your fruit “sparkling,” don’t make these drinks your key hydration source. And don’t sip. It gives acids and sugars plenty of time to affect your teeth.

These habits are great to form early on to ensure that the risk of periodontal disease and decay are lowered.
