drink tea and keep your teeth healthy

April 25, 2010 10:22pm CST
How often to you drink tea every day? I've read an online article that says drinking one cup of tea everyday may improve dental health and reduce the risk of loosing teeth by 20 percent and drinking more cups a day will decrease the risk. Do you believe on this?

I actually haven't read a study yet that drinking tea helps in reducing risk of falling teeth. All I know is that tea helps and aids in digestion and promotes relaxation.

Hi Care, THanks for this information. i was advised to refrain from taking coffee and tea by my doctor to avoide avoid reflux episodes. i tried my best to avoid dinking coffee but never wit tea. i can't let a day pass without drinking tea. now, at least there's another good thing in the tea.

I never knew that drinking tea can improve our dental health. If the online article you have read is supported by some researches or studies, it maybe right. I used to drink a cup of iced tea or hot tea everyday, but now it is rare.

I've never heard of this before. What article did you read this at and was it from a creditable site? This depends on the tea I guess, if it's true. It seems like green tea is just for the inner most workings of the body and not teeth. And camomile and jasmine dont seem like they would be for this. And the more common earl gray, orange peoke and red rose dont seem like the type to be healthy for your teeth either. I know that tea is supose to make your teeth less white and such which is one reason why Im not eager to beleive this works ; I mean, if it's bad for your teeth on the outside, how can it be good for the inside?

Careguarden, how are you doing mylotting, hope it's fine ? I don't know if drinking tea really helps the teeth but the best way to know is to ask a doctor or make research, some of this articles just try to get us to reading and maybe viewing but for sure i know articles writers like to keep their readers marveled, so the best way to confirm how truthful or false is to ask the web search engines or see your doctor. Happy Mylotting

I haven't come across any article like that! Drinking tea --- Oral health? I am not sure but it may be possible - you know, maybe tea has some ingredients that can kill the microbes in the mouth!!

What has tea gotten to do with teeth? I really don't know about that, but I don't like the taste of tea at all, I don't know why, perhaps I'm just not used to it. We're not tea-drinkers here in our country.
