Red Wine, Over the Lips and Around the Mouth – Dentist Chamblee

Chamblee Dentist near me Drinking-Red-WineFor anyone searching for another reason to enjoy a glass of red wine with dinner, here’s a great one:

A new study has found that red wine, as well as grape seed extract, could potentially help prevent cavities.[1] They say this could lead to the development of natural products that ward off dental diseases with fewer side effects.  Cavities, periodontal disease and tooth loss affect an estimated 60 to 90 percent of the global population.[2]

This research has suggested that polyphenols, grape seed extract and wine can slow bacterial growth.  Red wine with or without alcohol and wine with grape seed extract was effective at getting rid of the bacteria found in the mouth.

The down side is you need to treat the stains caused by the red wine.  If we can be of help please give us a call.
