Fish Fights Gum Disease
A diet full of fish and nuts goes a long way to protect people from gum disease - a new study has shown.
The research has suggested that polyunsaturated fatty acids found in foods such as fatty fish and nuts will help keep people’s smiles healthy, as it has been shown to help lower the risks of gum disease and periodontitis.

The research examined the diet of 182 adults between 1999 and 2004, and found that those who consumed the highest amounts of fatty acids were 30 percent less likely to develop gum disease and 20 percent less likely to develop periodontitis (severe gum disease).

Lead researcher of the study, Dr. Asghar Z. Naqvi of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston said:
“We found that n-3 fatty acid intake, particularly docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid are inversely associated with periodontitis in the US population. To date, the treatment of periodontitis has primarily involved mechanical cleaning and local antibiotic application. A dietary therapy, if effective, might be a less expensive and safer method for the prevention and treatment of periodontitis.”

Chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, Dr. Nigel Carter, said:
“Most people suffer from gum disease at some point in their life. What people tend not to realize is that it can actually lead to tooth loss if left untreated and, in this day and age, most people should be able to keep all their teeth for life.

“This study shows that a small and relatively easy change in people’s diet can massively improve the condition of their teeth and gums, which in turn can improve their overall wellbeing.”

The study was published in the November issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
