New research reveal that drinking green tea may be an effective way to help keep teeth and gums healthy and reduce your risk to several diseases caused by the bacteria associated with poor gum health.

A new study, published in the Journal of Periodontology, revealed that a group of men who regularly drank green tea had very healthy teeth and gums, and less periodontal disease compared to those who did not routinely drink green tea. Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can not only lead to tooth loss, but new studies indicate that periodontal is associated with the progression of other diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

woman_smilingMany people are looking towards dental implants to replace teeth lost from poor oral care, injury or from bone loss through aging. While advances have been made for oral implants, it is important to understand the procedure and ensure that your oral implant specialist is on board with the latest technology and procedures.

While most oral implant specialists have been taught to complete an oral implant procedure in one to two visits scheduled a few weeks to a month apart, this may not be the best approach for implant success.
