Great News for Tea Drinkers

Further to our previous blog, labelled Dental News for Tea-Drinkers, we have more tea-related dental information for you!

If you are a regular tea drinker, you will pleased to hear that recent studies have found that those who drink three or four cups of tea per day may benefit from a reduced risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

Tea, and black tea in particular, consists of ingredients that are able to fight the bacteria that can cause problems for your teeth and gums, meaning that those who drink it regularly are potentially aiding their oral health care regime.

And it isn’t just plain black tea that can help fight bacteria. The studies also showed that black tea with sugar and green tea offered a similar level of combativeness towards bacteria in comparison.

If you are interested in finding out more about how your diet and lifestyle can contribute towards great oral health, we encourage you to make an appointment with our dentist or hygienist.

If you would like to book a consultation, please do not hesitate to contact us via our website or directly by telephone at the practice.
