What Benefits Your Teeth Get When You Consume Cranberries
Posted on 11/20/2019 by Dr. Chapko
If you have been searching for a new snack to slip in during work or while you are binge watching a new series on Netflix. Turn to cranberries or even sipping some cranberry juice. Recently, there was a research team that looked into the benefits of cranberry, out of the University of Rochester Medical Center. They found that the chemicals from inside the cranberry that help it fight bladder problems can also potentially help our teeth fight off cavities. It mimics a ceramic coating for the teeth, which makes it harder for bacteria to even stick to the surface of our teeth. Cranberries and PlaqueThere is a specific bacterium responsible for a majority of cavities in your mouth. It is called Streptococcus mutans. It creates cavities by feeding off of the sugar and food particles stuck to your teeth. After it consumes sugar and food, it excretes acidic plaque that erodes the enamel. Doctor Koo's team found evidence that cranberry juices contain ingredients that disrupt the formation of plaque on the teeth. In essence, it protects the teeth from having acid build up on them. Other Benefits of CranberriesOn top of the added benefit of protecting your teeth from decay, cranberries possess a large list of other beneficial properties. It's loaded with vitamin C, it helps lower your cholesterol, and it helps cut down colds and sore throats. In the same ways it protects the teeth, it helps reduce bacterial build-up during a urinary tract infection. Before you run out and load up on cranberry juice, it's important to know that the protections we have discussed are found in sugar-free cranberry juice. Be sure to avoid added colors as they can possess acids harmful to the teeth. If you would like to make a cavity-fighting cocktail, boil some 100% cranberry juice with a cinnamon stick or two. Keep flossing, brushing, using mouthwash, and coming to see us for your regular appointments, and this will ensure you continue your cavity-free days....
