Coffee May Be Good For Your Teeth
Remember when your dentist told you that too much coffee could damage your teeth? Hold that thought, and think about this: researchers at Boston University believe that coffee may actually be good for you teeth, at least when it comes to keeping them in your head. A Goldman School of Dental Health news release reports that when researchers looked at data about about coffee intake from 1,152 men in the US Department of Veterans Affairs Dental Longitudinal Study (DLS) during triennial dental visits between 1968 and 1998, they found that coffee consumption was associated with a small but statistically significant reduction in number of teeth with periodontal bone loss. Every tooth counts.
