3 Reasons Why Your Dentist Prefers You to Drink Matcha

If you're like most, you probably have 2 or 3 coffees a day, meaning you also have coffee stained teeth. You can try to lie to your dentist, but one look at you're teeth and they'll be able to tell what you're eating or drinking (or not drinking! Yet..) However, anyone with an addiction to our matcha green tea powder will tell you, their dentist loves them.

Here are 3 reasons why your dentist prefers you to drink matcha:


Reason 1.) Coffee is highly acidic

Have you ever drank a cup of coffee and then instantly felt your guts rumbling? Your stomach is probably sensitive to the high levels of acid found in your daily coffee. If coffee is upsetting your stomach that much, imagine what it's doing to your teeth..?! Matcha is actually an alkaline substance, working to fight off the harmful acid from things like coffee. 

Reason 2.) Coffee has what are called dark pigments

While black tea and coffee both contain what are known as dark pigments, matcha is completely neutral toward your teeth. For a better idea of what dark pigments are, I would suggest googling 'dark pigments on teeth'! You will especially notice this if you've had a few sugary coffees through the day and you go to sleep without brushing your teeth. Matcha has none of these pigments.

Reason 3.) Coffee has high amounts of sulphur

It's impossible not to notice someones coffee breath after a long day at work, sipping the occasional coffee or two. This bad breath is actually caused by the high amounts of sulphur found in coffee. Matcha on the other hand, has bad breath bacteria fighting molecules called catechins. These catechins combined with matcha being a highly alkaline substance, virtually kills all bad breath.

In short, drinking matcha green tea:

  • Cleans teeth
  • Doesn't stain
  • Doesn't have any corrosive acid
  • Freshens breath

This is the perfect recipe for a happy dentist as well as strong, clean, and long-lasting teeth.
