Coffee May Fight Gum Disease

Coffee may have an unintended benefit.

Researchers recently determined that drinking coffee could lower the risk of gum disease. A research team at Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine conducted the study. Their research indicated that coffee did not have a negative impact on periodontal health.

The study appeared in the August issue of the Journal of Periodontology.

The study also showed that drinking coffee regularly had a minimal impact on the number of teeth affected by bone loss.

To compile the data, a group of more of than 1,100 of adult males ages 26 to 84 were studied. This study was the first of its kind to explore the possible periodontal impact of drinking coffee.

About 98 percent of the people who partook in the study were white. Other factors, such as alcohol consumption, smoking, body mass index, overall health, and oral health were also considered.


  1. Thanks for sharing the informative blog with us.

  2. Great blog! I had never heard of coffee having a possible positive impact on gum disease. I have also learned that there is something in the gummy bears that fight cavities. It would be good to follow up on these investigations and studies. Something great can come out of them! http://www.limeridgedental.ca/en/

  3. Ah! I just love to drink coffee. That means I have low risk of gum disease ;)

  4. Thanks for the post. I did not know that coffee could help fight gum disease. I have never been a big fan of coffee but i might try it out. I do not want to get gum disease. I will try this out.


  5. I have a cup of coffee every morning before work. I have always thought it was bad for my teeth doing that though. Its great to hear otherwise, thanks for sharing.

  6. Wow, I had no idea that coffee could help fight gum disease! I drink a lot of coffee, probably more than I should. But hey, at least I'll be protected from gum disease! http://www.dentistryranchocucamonga.com

  7. Thank you for sharing the information. I always enjoy reading your blogs. It is very informative which helps readers to know more about taking care of dental health.

  8. I never heard that coffee had such good benefits for our teeth. Thanks you shared really a valuable information.

  9. You still have to remember that coffee also stains teeth. I don't know if that is enough to outweigh the good benefits or not. I think that you just need to be careful with what you put in your body so that the teeth don't stain or get any cavities. http://www.dentistcapemaycourthousenj.com/

  10. Even if coffee prevents gum disease, is it really worth it. It will still cause discoloration in your teeth. There are other things that prevent gum disease without that effect, and it seems smarter to pursue those treatments. http://www.dentistedwards.com

  11. I had no idea that coffee could help fight gum disease. That is definitely not something I have ever thought before. It would be really interesting to learn what else helps fight gum disease. It is amazing how many things like coffee can have so many benefits.


  12. I would have never thought about coffee having this benefit. It's really important to make sure that your dental health isn't being ignored. I know that I would want to do everything within my power to be able to keep my health as strong as possible in every sense. Hopefully more people realize that and look into this kind of thing to help themselves.

  13. That is awesome that it has been determined that 'drinking coffee could lower the risk of gum disease' on top of helping to keep people awake. With these studies they not only proved that, but they also showed that there was a minimal impact on the bone loss in teeth. Those are both really good things for these studies to show. This is something that my dentist was even talking to me the last time I had an appointment.
