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

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Green tea, black tea, and white tea all come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The characteristic color and flavor associated with each type of tea depends on the method of preparation. In general, green tea is not fermented and is exposed to only nominal oxidation.

The antioxidant and polyphenol content of green tea has garnered the most attention for its health benefits and a great deal of associated research has been conducted within the last decade. A study published in the June 2008 issue of the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation showed that drinking a cup of green tea has an almost immediate positive effect on blood vessel function and can reduce the risk of heart disease. In April 2006, the Annals of Internal Medicine reported a Japanese study that linked regular consumption of green tea and other caffeinated beverages to a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes.

It didn’t take long for researchers in the dental field to discover that green tea could help improve oral health as well. Dr. David Zelby, an Atlanta dentist and prosthodontist, says that findings published in the Journal of Periodontology revealed green tea’s potential to fight gum disease, an inflammatory oral disorder that affects over half of American adults. The study, conducted by Japan’s Kyushu University, showed that regular consumption of at least one cup of green tea per day reduced all three primary indicators for gum disease. “The tea drinkers,” says Dr. Zelby, “were all males between ages 49-59 and all showed reduced periodontal pocket depth, less attachment loss in the gum tissue, and reduced bleeding when probed.”
