Coffee and Oral Health

A recently published study from Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine may just make your day a little perkier.  The results show that “higher coffee consumption was associated with a small but significant reduction in number of teeth with periodontal bone loss.”

Researchers compared dental records of 1,152 adult males from the Greater Boston area based on dental visits from 1968-1998.  Though this is just one study so far, the findings may just jumpstart anyone’s day.
