Posted on 10/24/2022 by Cassity & Legacy Implants and Periodontics
Do you suffer from inflammation and periodontitis? If so, you're not alone. Millions in the world are affected by these conditions. Luckily, many foods can help boost your gum health and reduce inflammation. This post will explain four of the best anti-inflammatory foods you can eat to improve your gum health!

Cruciferous Vegetables


These are known as superfoods for a good reason. They are packed with nutrients and antioxidants that help fight inflammation and improve your health overall. Some of the best cruciferous vegetables to eat for gum health include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and Brussels sprouts. They contain a compound called sulforaphane, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria. These veggies are also great for your teeth and gums because they contain calcium and vitamin C, which are necessary for oral health. Vitamin C is essential because it helps your body absorb iron, which is essential for healthy gum tissues.

Blueberries
