There may be a newly discovered benefit to drinking coffee.
Recent studies suggest that regularly drinking coffee keeps teeth healthy and clean. The information was determined by a team at the Federal University in Rio de Janeiro.
The caffeine helps to eliminate harmful bacteria and plaque.
The researchers looked at baby teeth containing the robusta coffee bean, which is grown in Brazil and Vietnam. They concluded that the bean aided in getting rid of a film of bacteria on the teeth, serving to thwart the onset of plaque.
