Drink to Your (Oral) Health: Atlanta Dentist Looks at Two Recent Studies Exploring Green Tea’s Effects on Oral Health
Date:4/30/2013

ref="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22226360" title="Green tea: a promising natural product in oral health" onclick="linkClick(this.href)">second article, published in the May 2012 issue of the Archives of Oral Biology, claims that green tea’s potential for addressing common oral health issues may be more far-reaching than initially thought. Among other things, the article’s authors assert that green tea can protect tooth enamel from the deleterious effects of tooth decay, reduce inflammatory soft tissue reactions in tobacco users, force apoptosis (cell death) in oral cancer cells, and even fight bad breath by neutralizing the volatile sulfur compounds that occur naturally in bad breath-causing foods like garlic and onions.

Although these studies seem to promote green tea as the newest weapon in the ongoing fight for oral health, Dr. Zelby notes that both studies “call for further clinical research before we can definitively say that green tea can prevent cavities and cure gum disease.” Rather than abandon a regular at-home dental hygiene regimen or skip checkups and cleanings in the hopes that green tea will suffice, people are encourage to incorporate green tea into a healthy lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and regular visits to the dentist.

To enjoy all the potential oral health benefits green tea has to offer, Dr. Zelby recommends drinking 1-3 cups of green tea every day. “Be sure to avoid sweetened, bottled green tea beverages,” he says. “The sugar content of these drinks will counteract whatever oral health benefits green tea has to offer.”
