5. Help pain and inflammation
With its number of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, green tea is a great natural alternative to drugs. Of course, it’s not going to help any major problems but if it’s a toothache that you want to ease then green tea will help to do the trick.
Along with a tooth infection there’s usually the pain and swelling that goes along with it and no, it’s not the greatest few days of your life. When I have problems with my wisdom teeth I brew a strong pot of green tea and swish it around the area. It helps to calm the inflammation and fight the infection. The heat is also soothing. For internal problems such as bloating and reflux I also find drinking green tea really helps to calm the pain and reduce swelling. Ref 8.
