Great news for oenophiles! Earlier this year, the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry published a study suggesting that red wine may help prevent cavities and gum disease. This study out of Spain indicate that some compounds in red wine not only help prevent tooth demineralization, one of the first steps in getting a cavity, but also prevent bacteria associated with periodontitis, or gum disease, as well as tooth decay, from sticking to teeth. So it may be in your dental health’s interest to go ahead and enjoy that glass of cab or pinot!
