Clinical Study Title:
Nutritional variables related to gingival health in adolescent girls.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at various nutritional factors that are associated with gingivitis. A total of 27 females with gingivitis were compared to women of the same age and risk factors who did not have gingivitis. Comparisons between the two groups showed some nutritional differences that are believed to be related to gingivitis. The intake of both calcium and vitamin B2 were associated with the development of gingivitis. Those females who took supplements of calcium and vitamin B2 had reduced risk of gingivitis. This suggests that calcium and vitamin B2 have some protection against gingivitis.|
