How Tea Can Improve Your Oral Health

Posted on 4/20/2019 by Cane Bay Family Dentistry
How Tea Can Improve Your Oral HealthWhen it comes to your oral health, you probably know about the foods and drinks that can harm it. Coffee can stain the teeth, while soda is highly acidic and can lead to enamel erosion. So, what should you drink instead? You may be happy to hear that green tea can actually improve your oral health, so it is a good beverage to add to your daily diet.

Prevent Cavities

Green tea is especially good for your oral health, as it works to control bacteria levels in the mouth. Since bacteria are the cause of cavities, keeping levels under control can ultimately prevent decay. Green tea also lowers saliva acidity, which can also contribute to cavities.

Prevent Gum Disease

Green tea offers anti-inflammatory properties that can prevent gums from becoming red and inflamed. Ultimately, these powers can help to keep gum disease under control. Research from around the world has indicated that people who drank green tea regularly had fewer instances of gum disease than people who did not regularly drink this beverage.

Save Your Teeth

Left unchecked, gum disease and decay can ultimately result in tooth loss. So, if regular consumption of green tea can prevent these issues, it is easy to make the connection that green tea can help you to avoid tooth loss. A Japanese study found just that – people in their study who reported to drink at least one cup of green tea per day were significantly more likely to keep their natural teeth than people who did not regularly drink green tea.

Fight Bad Breath

Green tea can also help with bad breath. Green tea removes microbes from the mouth that are responsible for halitosis. In fact, some studies have found that green tea is better than chewing gum and minutes when it comes to fighting bad breath.
