Why You Should Drink a Daily Cup of Tea

Posted on 6/30/2017 by Dr. Pickens
A hot cup of tea.
Are you a tea drinker? If not, then you should be. Tea is incredibly good for your body. It gives you health benefits that are hard to find elsewhere, and it also gives your mouth a big boost.

Take one of your drinks of soda or coffee each day, and replace it with your favorite variety of tea. Your body will be much better off if you make this one simple change.

The Health Benefits of Drinking Tea

Tea is great for your mouth. It's naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. This means that it helps to kill the bacteria in your mouth, and then it helps to keep any inflammation down that may be present from early signs of gum disease. This allows your mouth to feel better, and to remain healthier, just by sipping a cup of tea each day.

When you drink tea, you are less likely to get cavities. It helps reduce the buildup of plaque in your mouth, plus it decreases the overall acidity in your mouth. This keeps your tendency of cavities down, and allows your mouth to be less prone to sensitivity.

Tea decreases the chances that you will develop oral cancer, plus it also boosts your breath, allowing you to have more peace of mind. Being able to know that you are not going to have offensive breath is nice, plus, anything that lowers your cancer risk is a plus.

Talk to your dentist about switching to tea. It gives you a lot of benefits, plus it allows you to keep yourself better hydrated. It may only be a small thing in your life, but it can make a big difference in your overall health. Find out more about how this can boost your oral health by contacting our office today!
