THE EFFECTS OF COFFEE ON YOUR MOUTH

Beware if you wake up to a hot cup of coffee. Because this habit is fraught with dental concerns. The beverage may rejuvenate your mind but its effects on your mouth are not worth ignoring either. The bit of pep you get out of the drink is definitely not worth the dental risk you stand to invite over a period of time. After all, coffee is not only a notorious teeth strainer but can also affect your mouth in other ways as well. So, even if it energizes your senses and makes your mornings special, there’s no way you should continue with it, given the health of your mouth and teeth.

Here are some of the effects of coffee on your mouth-

Teeth Staining:

Since the enamel on your teeth is porous, the dark color of your favorite beverage enters into it and causes the stains of visible nature. However, surface stains are easy to get rid of and only a dental visit will suffice for that. There are teeth whitening to break down stains and whiten or brighten your teeth. On the other hand, veneers are the best fit when the stains are of severe or stubborn nature. Whatever is the stain type, a dentist can help in all situations for sure.

Enamel Erosion:

Such foodstuff can cause the erosion of the enamel over time and may lead to dental decay gradually. Your focus should on two things – first, to minimize the intake of such foods; and second, limit the direct contact of these foods with your teeth. For example, you can use a straw to sip your tea or coffee or fruit juices. And then, you can rinse the mouth with use followed by brushing the teeth a good 30 minutes after the drink.

Bad Breath:

If you have been drinking coffee on a regular basis, chances are, you may have bad breath problem by now. This happens due to the presence of caffeine in coffee which dries out the saliva in your mouth. Such conditions of the oral cavity are favorable for bacteria to grow at a rapid rate.

This is how your teeth will have wear and tear, or you enamel can get worn gradually resulting in oral problems such as tooth damage and sensitive teeth.
