Researchers from Boston University Believe Coffee May Help Fight Gum Disease and Increasing Benefits With Tylers Coffee

Tucson, AZ. (PRWEB) February 24, 2015

Coffee contains antioxidants. Antioxidants fight gum disease. Does coffee, then, help fight gum disease? That is the question researchers at Boston Univ. Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine explored in a study published in the August 2014 issue of the Journal of Periodontology.

This is the first long-term study of its kind that has investigated the association between coffee consumption and periodontal disease in humans, Ng added.

The study was conducted by researchers at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine scientists. They used data from 1,152 men in the US Department of Veterans Affairs Dental Longitudinal Study (DLS).

The researchers found that coffee intake was associated with a small but statistically significant reduction in teeth and bone loss. The team said that coffee consumption might keep gums healthy at least in adult males.

We found that coffee consumption did not have an adverse effect on periodontal health, and, instead, may have protective effects against periodontal disease, said Nathan Ng of the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, lead author of the study.

So what does this mean for us coffee drinkers? We will have to see what the data provides but it is highly possible your daily cup helps fights some away harmful effects of gum disease. The team plans on using data from diverse, groups to see whether or not there is a link between coffee consumption and gum disease.

Well while we are waiting for the research to provide a final answer we can know one thing for sure. Tylers Coffee, as an acid-free coffee, can at least help prevent deteriorating & yellowing of teeth normally caused by a acidic coffee. Happy brewing!

Dr. James Tanner Now Reverses Gum Recession in Greensboro, NC through a New, Minimally Invasive Procedure

Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) January 09, 2015

Greensboro, NC residents seeking treatment for receding gums are now invited to visit local periodontist, Dr. James Tanner for the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST), a new alternative to gum grafting. Dr. Tanner recently joined the small number of professionals who are certified to offer this minimally invasive procedure. With PST, Dr. Tanner can correct gum recession while minimizing the risk of complications after the procedure, such as pain and infection.

Rather than relocating healthy gum tissue, Dr. Tanner reverses the effects of recession by restoring the receding tissue to a more natural position. To do this, Dr. Tanner makes a small incision in the tissue and uses a specialized tool to reach through the pinhole incision; using this tool, Dr. Tanner carefully loosens the gum tissue until it can be pulled up or down to cover more of the exposed teeth. This approach allows Dr. Tanner to correct widespread recession in as little as one session, minimizing the trips that patients must make to visit their periodontist in Greensboro. As a minimally invasive procedure, PST offers a low risk of infections, bleeding, discomfort or delayed healing. Many people return to regular activities within a day of the procedure.

PST and other gum recession treatments offer patients various health benefits. Gum recession can leave teeth exposed to infection, and the loss of supporting gum tissue can result in increased tooth mobility. Cosmetically, recession can cause the appearance of long teeth and an unbalanced smile. PST addresses all of these issues. Dr. Tanners patients also benefit from seeking gum recession treatment because they can learn whether the recession is associated with other oral health problems. Receding gums can be an early symptom of periodontal disease, or can occur because of tooth clenching, poor oral hygiene, harsh brushing techniques or bite misalignment. Patients who put off seeking treatment for gum recession may face unnecessary health complications associated with the underlying cause of the condition.

Dr. Tanner encourages patients to watch for visual signs of receding gums, such as changes in gum pocket depth or apparent tooth length. Tooth sensitivity or looseness can also be a sign of recession. People who notice these oral health changes are encouraged to visit Greensboro periodontist, Dr. Tanner as soon as possible. Patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Tanner by calling his office or visiting his website.
