Oral Health Benefits of Tea Drinking

Posted on 12/21/2020 by Select Care Dental
Looking for something good to drink that will also help improve your oral health? Put aside soda, coffee, and juice—many of these drinks are not good for you at all. While water should always be your go-to beverage, there are some oral health benefits to drinking tea, specifically green tea. Green Tea Helps Your Gums and Teeth Drinking green tea can help battle the bacteria that creates cavities. That's because studies have confirmed that it helps reduce the amount of bad bacteria in the mouth. It also lowers the overall acidity of the mouth. This helps keep your teeth strong. Green tea may also help stop or slow tooth decay, though more research is needed in this area. Where your gums are concerned, green tea has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. This helps reduce gum disease and bleeding. With both of these benefits, it's no wonder that a study conducted in Japan in 2010 showed that people who drank at least one cup of green tea every day were likely to keep all of their natural teeth. Green tea will also help kill off the bacteria that cause bad breath, so you'll have fresh, great smelling breath without resorting to chewing gum or breath mints. It Also Helps Battle Cancer Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which many studies have found can help reduce cancerous tumors and prevent damage to the cells that often leads to cancer. Green tea has been shown to help slow the progression of oral lesions from precancerous to cancerous, allowing them to be treated before they become dangerous. While additional studies are needed to cement the fact that green tea can battle cancer, the results so far are very encouraging. If you'd like to talk more about the benefits of green tea, we'd be happy to chat about it during your next appointment. Call and book one today if you don't have one scheduled....
