Wine contains properties such as polyphenols that are beneficial to overall health, especially oral health. Polyphenols contain a vast amount of antioxidants which protect the body from harm caused by free radicals. However, recent work indicates polyphenols might also promote health by actively interacting with bacteria in the gut. The grapes in Wine produce polyphenols to ward off infection by harmful bacteria and other pathogens.When combined with the Streptococcus dentisani, which is believed to be an oral probiotic, the polyphenols were even better at fending off the pathogenic bacteria. Overall it is beneficial to consume wine one in a while to promote good oral health. Not too much though.... we don't want those pearly whites stained !

Electric toothbrushes remove plaque more effciently than regular manual toothbrushes. This is attributed to the fact that the electric brush does the brushing action for you. This makes the electric toothbrush easier to use versus the standard manual ones. Electric toothbrushes can also be altered depending on the needs of the patient. Due to this, the electric toothbrush possesses different types and features available on the brush itself. This makes it easy to find a setting and particular brush that suits your specific oral health needs. There are also physical benefits of the electric toothbrush. Indivudals who have arthritis or other similar conditions may find using an electric toothbrush less painful due to the ease of use and decreased physical labor during the brushing process. Electric toothbrushes may also help kids brush their teeth more effectively as the brush can reach areas of the tooth that children may miss and also provides a "fun" factor while brushing teeth due to the active vibrational motion.
