5 Ways Green Tea is Good for Your Teeth and Gums

Not everybody knows this, but the foods we eat are directly linked to our oral health.

You must have heard that soda and sweets are bad for the teeth, right? However, there is an ancient tea that takes care of your oral health.

We recently talked about a natural food that helps a lot with oral hygiene: apples. Did you watch it?

Like apples, green tea (extracted from the plant Camellia sinensis) is also part of the foods that keep our mouths healthy.

Our smile is a business card, so we should take good care of our teeth: Brush them at least three times a day, floss after meals, and visit the dentist regularly.

After research with 940 men that drink green tea regularly, Dr. Yoshihiro Shimazaki found out that the tea aids in cases of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Isn't it amazing?

See 5 incredible reasons why green tea is good for your oral health:

0:00 Green Tea and Oral Health

2:01 Fights tooth loss

Although there are proven benefits of green tea for oral health, the tea alone doesn't replace daily care with oral hygiene.

If you have gingivitis or periodontitis, it is essential to brush and floss your teeth.

A cup of hot tea is really good, but to keep your problems from worsening, you need to visit your dentist!
