A new study found that brushing and flossing alone won't get you a healthy smile.

New research found participants who ate foods with omega 3 fatty acids were up to 30% less likely to have gum disease.

The disease is marked by chronic inflammation caused by bacteria at the gum line.

Omega 3's, found in foods like fish oil and nuts, fight inflammation.

The study was conducted at Harvard University.
