The impact of red wine in preventing cavities came into light when researchers conducted a study where they grew cultures of all those bacteria that are considered to be responsible for a variety of dental diseases. They were then dipped into various liquids like red wine with an extract of grape seed, red wine without any alcohol and pure red wine and water with 12 percent ethanol. It was found that these bacteria were got ridden of in the most effective manner when dipped with red wine with the extract of grape seed and with or without alcohol. This proves that red wine do have an impact on the dental problems and can help in getting rid of dental cavities.

The decay in a tooth starts when certain types of bacteria found in the mouth adds with biofilms which are bacteria communities that are quite hard to kill and ultimately forming plaque that damages teeth. It also results in producing harmful acids. The effect of fluoride rinses and brushing has limited effect and certain anti-microbial rinses can also change the gum color making it less and less people going for it. This led the researchers to keep on looking for better alternatives which are more appealing to the people. In the course of the study, red wine was found to be quite effective on teeth related issues. The effectiveness of this product depends on the time it stays on the teeth. It is referred to as substantivity. Wine comes with high substantivity and one can easily see the stains on the teeth when it is consumed. When red wine combined with antioxidants that are found in the seeds of the grapes, red wines becomes all the more effective in killing teeth bacteria.
