Coffee has been drunk for centuries but it is now estimated that we drink over 2 billion cups of coffee each day, globally. Despite the caffeine kick, it can also be a bit of a kick in the teeth. But why is coffee so bad for your teeth?

Heat. Colour. Acidity. Lingering. To make matters worse, it is believed that more than one-third of us (37%) add sugar to it. Coffee can cause discoloration both by leaving a tannic residue on the tooth surface as well as slowly wearing away enamel to expose the yellowish hue of the dentin layer below the surface of the tooth.

Some say if you drink it through a straw then it reduces staining, as does rinsing your mouth after a cup. But if this doesn’t go with your hipster, laidback morning at the coffee shop image then make sure you maintain excellent oral health at home.

This means brushing your teeth twice a day with a protective toothpaste and regular visits to a dentist or hygienist. BioMin®toothpastes are clinically proven to strengthen and protect enamel, reduce the effects of sensitivity (often triggered by drinking hot beverages such as coffee) and, through the slow release of Calcium, Phosphate and Fluoride ions, which actually provide protection for several hours.

Some of our customers also believe it makes their teeth whiter too. So, if you have brushed your teeth with BioMin toothpastes first thing in the morning, then you are much more likely to protect them from the effects of the world’s favorite morning drink and long into the day. That’s why we call it Armour for Teeth.
