Red Wine Shows Promise As A Cavity Fighter

Hendersonville Dentist Wants You To Enjoy Your Wine

For anyone that is searching for another reason to enjoy a glass of red wine with dinner, here is a good one: A new study has found that drinking a glass of red wine could potentially prevent cavities. Dental disease’s are extremely common throughout the world. Cavities, periodontal disease, and tooth loss affect 60-90% of the world’s population. The problems begin when certain bacteria in the mouth get together and form bio-films, which are communities of bacteria that are hard to kill. They form plaque and produce acid which will begin to damage your teeth. Hendersonville Family Dentistry encourages you to continue brushing, and fluoride in toothpaste can help get rid of these bacterial plaques.
