We all know that drinking green tea has health benefits, but you can add healthy gums and teeth to the list of benefits.

Preventive Medicine recently published that drinking at least one cup of green tea a day increases the odds of keeping your teeth as you get older. The power in green tea comes from anti-microbial molecules called catechins which serve to protect teeth and gums by killing bacteria that promotes decay. Although in lesser amounts, the molecules can also be found in oolong tea. For those of you who add sweeteners, researchers found it may lessen the powerful benefit of green tea.

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a crucial part of maintaining a healthy body. That is why it is so important to find simple ways to boost oral health – such as regularly drinking green tea.

Of course, visiting our office regularly is also important. When was your last visit?
