Can Fish Oil Treat Gum Disease?
"I would recommend that people ensure they have a sufficient intake of long chain omega-3 fatty acids in their diet for general health," said Coates. "In Australia, these types of fatty acids are considered to be essential with ~500 mg recommended as the suggested dietary target. This equates to approximately 2 fatty fish meals per week."
The group reports indicate that fish oil may be useful in reducing periodontal symptoms, but more strategic research is still needed. Currently a study is ongoing in Australia that is testing the effects of fish oil as a possible component for periodontitis treatment.
