How Tea Promotes Gum Health

Last updated 4 years ago

Do you love kick-starting your busy morning with a cup of green or black tea? If so, then you'll be happy to learn that your morning ritual is not only beneficial for your mood and your energy levels but also to your oral health. According to researchers, the antioxidants in just one cup of green tea can help your gums stay strong and fight off potentially harmful bacteria.

Black tea packs just as powerful of a punch when it comes to keeping your mouth clean, as you'll hear in this video from Colgate. Black teas suppress acid and bacterial growth, which safeguards you against periodontal disease and tooth decay.

Here at the offices of Dr. Kenn Kakosian D.D.S., P.C., we pride ourselves on helping you feel confident about the look and health of your smile. Call (212) 661-9777 to learn about our cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry services.
