Did You Know Alcohol is Bad For Your Oral Health?

Alcohol can have some unwanted effects on your oral health:

– Alcohol can increase plaque and damage the enamel, resulting in tooth decay, cause a dry mouth and increase the risk of oral cancer.

– Sipping water as well as alcohol can help minimise its effects on your oral health.

– Visiting your dentist for regular checkups will keep your teeth healthy.

“No matter how much you drink, it’s important to know how alcohol affects your oral cavity to understand your risk of health problems such as oral cancer, tooth decay, and dry mouth.”
