Green Tea: Lesson 22 Combat Yellow Teeth And Stinky Breath

I told my dentist my teeth are going yellow and my breath is stinky…

He told me to wear a brown tie and to drink a cup of green tea!

Four simple ways to whiten your teeth and freshen your breath

1. Fresh Breath: Why? Green tea kills the microbes in our mouths that cause bad breath. Green tea has shown to beat out mints, chewing gum, and many other fresh-breath remedies.

2. Keeping Your Teeth: Researchers have found that drinking at least one cup of green tea per day increases the odds that you will have more of your teeth when you are older, and that those teeth will be stronger. This is because the catechins specific to green tea destroy the bacteria that can lead to tooth loss.

3. Cavity Prevention: Green tea both kills bacteria and lowers the acidity of saliva and plaque. This can result in fewer cavities and less bleeding from the gums.

4. Gum Health: Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties that can help control gum disease and inflammation. A Japanese survey of 1000 men found that those who drank green tea regularly had healthier gums than those who did not.

Take control of your oral health and freshen your breath at the same time. This is what they call a win-win situation.
