Perhaps it is because they're such a ubiquitous and simple item that few people ever consider what straws actually do for us aside from streamlining the beverages we drink. However, straws actually provide several benefits for our oral and dental health.
Here are three reasons why you should consider stocking up on straws for your kitchen:
Convenience: One of the reasons why straws are great for children is that they protect them from germs that may exist on glasses, especially in restaurants and other public venues where you can't verify the cleanliness of everything. Additionally, the controlled amount of liquid the a child drinks reduces the risk of choking.
Protect against staining: Dark-colored foods and beverages, like tea and coffee are notorious for leaving stains on our teeth, slowly rinsing away the brightness of your smile. With straws, you minimize, and sometimes eliminate altogether, contact between your front teeth and beverages like soda and other sugary drinks that can significantly affect the color of your teeth.
Reduces cavities: Just as with the stains, straws can protect your mouth from other hazards like bacteria and other substances that may cling to your teeth and create erosion. Protection against and the limiting of cavities is another upside to drinking with straws. A straw aimed toward the back of your mouth makes it impossible for beverages to pool around your teeth and eat away at your enamel.
