Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Taking care of our teeth is one of the first things taught to children in regards to performing self-help programs for a healthy lifestyle. Although most of the time, the use of chemicals in the form of toothpaste and mouthwash are often used to accomplish this important task, recently, new and more natural methods have been discovered by medical research as well as a hard hitting article posted at Health and Wellness portal BeWellBuzz.com which can help people take care of their teeth.
Each year, millions of United States residents visit their dentists each year. As a matter of fact, according to research provided by the American Dental Association posted on their website, over 50 million people visit their dentist for teeth related treatment, with the majority of these visits being conducted for routine dental inspection and cleaning. And in most of these cases, modern teeth cleaning methods include the use of high-pressure water pix instead of using chemical products for effective teeth cleaning.
In recent years, medical research has been conducted by several foreign countries to discover health benefits of more natural products, when used in conjunction with standard dental visits every six months, have shown to significantly reduce the amount of dental tooth decay and gum disease. A great example includes recent studies conducted on the dental benefits of green tea.
For well over 4,000 years, green tea has been a popular beverage in Asian culture, and is increasingly gaining popularity in the United States. However, recent research conducted by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) and documented in a news media release sent by the agency in May of 2012 posted on their website, found that routine intake of green tea may also help promote healthy teeth and gums. The study analyzed the periodontal health of 940 men, and found that those who regularly drank green tea had superior periodontal health than subjects that consumed less green tea.
“It has been long speculated that green tea possesses a host of health benefits,” stated Dr. Yoshihiro Shimazaki in the AAP news release from Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan. “And since many people enjoy green tea on a regular basis, we were eager to investigate the impact of green tea consumption on periodontal health, especially considering the escalating emphasis on the connection between periodontal health and overall health.”
In the afore mentioned study, Male participants between the ages of 49-59 were examined on three indicators of periodontal disease: periodontal pocket depth, clinical attachment loss of gum tissue, and bleeding on probing of the gum tissue. Researchers observed that for every one cup of green tea consumed per day, there was a decrease in all three indicators, therefore signifying a lower instance of periodontal disease in those subjects who regularly drank green tea.
The research about the natural health benefits of green tea in regards to dental health are simply the beginning of new focus by the dental community to find natural methods of improving dental health.
