Everybody knows that drinking water is vital for your health. But staying hydrated can be difficult – and sometimes boring.

As a rule of thumb, you are told to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. But after the first few glasses of water, you might begin to find the taste gets boring. And after eight glasses? You may never want to drink water again!

This is why people sometimes get tired of drinking plain water or look for something a bit more exciting. And sometimes, this choice is sparkling water.

Why Wear Custom-Made Mouth Guards | Dentist Glen Waverley

Why Wear Custom-Made Mouth Guards

Physical activity is a key part of childhood (and is good for adults as well!), but the Australian Dental Association warns that playing sports without appropriate protection can be detrimental to teeth.
