Green tea may boost periodontal health

Routinely drinking green tea may help promote healthy teeth and gums, a Japanese study has found.

The study surveyed the periodontal health of 940 men, aged between 49 and 59. The presence of all three indicators of periodontal disease – periodontal pocket depth, clinical attachment loss of the gum tissue, and bleeding on probing of the gum tissue – was found to be indirectly proportional to the green tea consumption of the subject. In other words, subjects who regularly drank green tea had lower instances of periodontal disease.

The positive effects of green tea on periodontal health may be down to the antioxidant catechin, which reduces inflammation in the body.

The study, recently published in the Journal of Periodontology, was headed up by Dr Yoshihiro Shimazaki of Kyushu University.
