A Molarccino please barista!


Apparently drinking strong black coffee can help keep your teeth clean and strong. There are chemicals in coffee,called polyphenols, that attack  the biofilm bacteria that causes tooth decay. Obviously having milk and sugar in your coffee would negate that effect. I understand that this has all been scientifically proven. I would like to add my ‘research’ to those scientific studies. I had to have quite a few fillings in my teeth when I was younger. I haven’t had a filling for many years and before you ask I don’t have false teeth…..yet! I never drank coffee as a child, in fact I probably didn’t start drinking a lot of coffee until I was in my twenties. I get through up to six large black Americanos a day now. So is that why my teeth are so healthy? Maybe it is, but it is probably the reason I am so wired and don’t need much sleep! You can’t win them all can you? Maybe Dentists should replace those minty mouthwashes with a coffee flavoured version though.


About justwilliam1959

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
