Fight Back Against Cavities with Cranberry Juice

Posted on 12/13/2015 by Fady Ebid
A large collection of cranberries.If you are looking for a new beverage to start off your morning that can help your teeth to fight off cavities, 100% cranberry juice may be your solution. Many people who are concerned about the health and appearance of their teeth balk at the idea of drinking cranberry juice, as traditionally, dark juices have been thought to cause stains to the teeth.

However, cranberry juice has some great properties that make it a good addition to any tooth-friendly diet.

How Does Cranberry Juice Work to Prevent Cavities?

Cranberry juice contains a specific enzyme that bacteria found on the teeth hate, and by inhibiting these bacteria, tooth decay can be reduced. When drinking 100% cranberry juice, these harmful bacteria will be less likely to stick to your teeth. If they can't adhere to your enamel, they won't be able to start eating away at the layers of your teeth, causing a cavity and other problems.

In addition to stopping bacteria in their tracts before they have a chance to start feeding on the sugars in your mouth, the enzyme found in cranberry juice can also disrupt glucan formation. Glucan is one of the main ingredients needed to create plaque. Since the buildup of plaque has also been shown to affect heart disease, this little berry packs a powerful punch.

What If You Hate the Flavor of Cranberry Juice?

If the benefits of cranberry juice sound great, but the taste doesn't appeal to you, you can add 100% apple juice to cut down on the bitterness. However, it is vital that you are choosing a product that is 100% juice, not juice cocktail. Read the ingredients to make sure that you are getting the right thing.

In addition to drinking cranberry juice, you'll also need to continue with your normal oral health routine, including regular cleanings. Contact our office today to set up an appointment.
