Foods for Healthy Gums, Healthy Hearts

August 20th, 2010

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is far more common than you may think in Americans. Every year, new studies begin to link the effect gum disease can have on the heart, and we at Associates in Periodontics have been helping spread the word! One of the simplest steps to achieving healthier gums can be your diet. We recently found a great article outlining several options for healthier gums. Included among the suggestions were:

-Raisins
-Green Tea
-Whole Grains

In addition to these foods being gums-friendly, they are healthy foods in general, and a great option to begin integrating into your diet. Hope these tips help!
