Making the Dental Connection:

WEIGHT CONTROL AND FITNESS HELPS REDUCE GUM DISEASE: A recent study published in the Journal of Periodontology found that those individuals with the lowest Body Mass Index, a measure of body fat, and the highest levels of fitness, had the lowest rates of severe periodontitis.

FISH FOR YOUR SMILE: A recent study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that those who consumed a higher amount of the omega-3 called DHA were less likely to have periodontal disease.

ORAL HEALTH AND HEART DISEASE: Numerous studies suggest that periodontal disease can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease by increasing whole-body inflammation. In addition to improved dental hygiene, dietary and lifestyle changes can also help decrease inflammation levels.
