Imbibe 1100 Words You Need

/ɪmˈbaɪb/ (verb)

to drink especially alcohol, swallow, gulp, to receive and accept information or data, take in something mentally, absorb

The American Dental Association (ADA) warns that one of the often-forgotten side effects of alcohol can be just as damaging to your teeth: dehydration. Alcohol consumption leads to a decrease in saliva flow, so instead of being washed away naturally, bacteria clings to the enamel and increases your risk of tooth decay.

If you’re celebrating the season with a few drinks, be sure to alternate alcohol with a glass or bottle of water to replenish this saliva and keep your mouth cleansed. You can also chew sugar-free gum or pop a mint on your tongue between drinks to increase saliva production further.

When opting for a heavily colored alcohol, you can definitely end up with stained teeth. Red wine, sangria and similar drinks with deep hues not only turn your teeth red, but can result in long-lasting discoloration and overall dullness – which really cramps your style in holiday pictures.
