Drinking green tea on a regular basis could provide benefits for oral health and limit the chances of needing emergency dentistry, one expert has claimed.
Dr Pravesh Solanki from Cosmeticdentistryguide.co.uk suggested that the beverage contains natural antioxidants that can reduce the build-up of plaque.
The dental expert suggested that a number of foods can be beneficial for oral health, but it is important to avoid sugary snacks and fizzy drinks to help teeth and gums.
In addition, Dr Solanki advised health-conscious individuals to increase their consumption of a variety of substances in a bid to limit the risk of developing problems.
“Milk and yogurt are good for teeth because they contain low acidity. Milk is also a good source of calcium, the main component of teeth and bones,” he explained.
According to the recent research published in Network Health Dieticians, consumption of black tea can provide similar benefits to green tea, including the prevention of heart disease.
