Drinking though a straw can give you the perfect smile

Drinking though a straw can give you the perfect smile

17 March 2015

More and more people want to achieve the perfect white smile, and now people can start the process at home with a few simple steps.

Research has shown that drinking through a straw can help protect teeth against the harmful sugars and colours that are found in drinks. Drinking through a straw means that liquid doesn’t actually touch the teeth, which helps prevent stains.

The mouth should also be rinsed out with water after sipping on a coloured drink such as coffee, juice or smoothie to avoid permanent stains. Brushing teeth straight after a drink is also not recommended; instead a 30 minute wait is more beneficial.
