Dr. Neuhaus’ Prescription for Healthy Gums: Eat More Fish and Nuts

For a delicious way to protect against gum disease, eat more fish and nuts.
According to a recent study, adults who consumed high amounts of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (found in fish and nuts), compared to adults who did not, were 30 percent less likely to develop gingivitis, and 20 percent less likely to develop periodontitis. This means that simply snacking on nuts and enjoying fish for dinner more often may result in better dental health.

  2. Hi, Dr. Peter! This is a great post. It is also true snacking on nuts, cheese and black licorice is less likely to promote decay than snacking on carbohydrates like popcorn and potato chips.
