Findings from a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry showed that red wine – both with and without alcohol – could get rid of dental disease-causing bacteria in a lab setting.
When bacteria like streptococci and lactobacilli are introduced to plaque and biofilm on the teeth, the combination can produce high acid levels that erode the surface of teeth and eventually lead to toss loss and periodontal disease. Statistics estimate up to 60-90 percent of all people are affected by these oral diseases.
