Cup of coffee

A strong cup of coffee first thing in the morning is a go-to for many of us – and for good reason. Coffee helps ease us into the day, and some research indicates that it may even be good for our health. A good cup of java has been shown to reduce the chance of developing Alzheimer’s, protect against heart disease, and may even help ward of diabetes in some populations.

Unfortunately, the benefits of that morning caffeine boost don’t extend to your teeth. Coffee is acidic, which means it can wear away the protective enamel of your teeth. You won’t notice it right away, but over time, this enamel erosion can cause tooth decay. And because the enamel on your teeth is porous, coffee can also cause staining and discoloration, turning your teeth an unsightly yellow or brown color.

It’s not all bad news, though – one study out of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro found that the polyphenols in coffee could help break up tooth-damaging plaque and bacteria, helping to prevent cavities and gum disease. But to reap those benefits, you have to drink it black.

So does all this mean you have to give up that critical morning coffee on your drive into the office? Not at all. But there are a few steps you need to take to ensure you’re protecting your teeth.

  • Follow up your cup with a glass of water or a quick brush to rinse your mouth and reduce damage to your teeth
  • Limit your coffee intake to one time of day, such as first thing in the morning or a cup in the afternoon, rather than sipping constantly throughout the day
  • Use a whitening toothpaste twice a day to counteract coffee stains
  • Visit Mansouri Family Dental Care & Associates for regular cleanings and check-ups. Our experienced and dedicated staff is here to help you protect your teeth and put your best smile forward

If you are looking for a great dental experience, I would have to suggest Mansouri Family Dental Care. I have been coming here for quite sometime, and I have been incredibly pleased with the kindness and care received from this professional group. Before coming to Mansouri Family Dental, I did not have very positive dental experiences. I like this group because I always feel at ease. I go in knowing that the experience is going to be great.

A wise man once said, "There are 3 very important friends in ones life....Dentist, Lawyer, and Mechanic." Mansouri Family Dental care is no exception, they are Crème de la Crème! My mouth had an early start on WW3, but the war was thwarted before any real life havoc could grip its deadly disease on my health! For a very long time I was battling with a Root Canal ed tooth and it was constantly getting infected....at times the infection would creep its way into my lymph nodes where severe infection would occur and my body would become lethargic and continue its endless fight against proliferating bacteria inside my gum line. I was in dire need of help and feeling miserable and helpless. When things could not get any worse....the permanent Crown broke off taking with it the top of the entire tooth only leaving behind the deep embedded roots inside my jaw. There is nothing I have endured more than these roots driving me insane. I was broke, a student, and unsure of how I could resolve the issue. I contacted my wonderful friend Dodd Mansouri whom is the hygienist at the Mansouri offices and he assured me that all was well and that I was in good hands. God bless his heart!!! First, they quickly sprung into Hero action and personally contacted my Private Dental Insurance company to check and make sure that my procedures would be covered, when it came back that I did not have full coverage.....Mansouri office worked alongside me and helped me upgrade my insurance to full coverage...so my shallow pockets wouldn't burn to the ground. That was far too kind of them to chose to help rather than having me fix the issue myself like a chicken with his head cutoff! So the day finally came and I was due to make a grand appearance at the Cumberland High-rise location, and let me tell you....their offices is nothing short of Grand!! I mean I would literally just pay to go up there and look out through their windows with its mesmerizing views of all Atlanta, just WOW! Now to the matter at hand, after Dr.Mansouris' inspection of my warring mouth....he told me that the rotten tooth had also brought about damage to the tooth behind it and to the tooth in front of it. He said that the tooth behind it seemed far too damaged and that the best route of course was to also root canal that tooth as well. However I told him that I wanted to live to be a 100 and that I needed all my teeth and already having lost one was bad enough. I made the suggestion that if it would be possible if he could try and save that tooth instead of Root Canal. Now, even though his suggestion was the right one he did not try to convince me to have it root canal ed but instead he respected my wishes to want to save the tooth and he said that he would try his best and that if in the near future I would have any issues and pain with the tooth...that then we would take his course of action. Surely enough, he was able to save both tooth. (This review is incomplete, for remainder please check Yelp!)
