How Coffee Affects Your Mouth

If you use coffee as part of your daily routine, this will continuously stain your teeth. But it can also affect your mouth in other ways.

Stains on your teeth.

Staining your teeth is the main impact from daily coffee drinking. Dark color drinks can penetrate your teeth and cause stains. You can help eliminate surface stains by visiting your Dentist for regular cleanings.

Cause of enamel erosion.

Coffee is extremely acidic, and can cause erosion of your enamel over long periods of time. To minimize the effect use a straw and rinse your mouth with water after finishing your coffee. Also wait and hour after eating or drinking, because your enamel is vulnerable.

Leading to bad breath.

Coffee can also lead to bad breath. The caffeine in the coffee can dry out the saliva in the mouth. One solution to coffee-breath is chewing sugar-free gum.
