Brush, floss....And eat yogurt?
Absolutely. Japanese researchers found that people who ate just 2 onces of yogurt per day nearly halved their risks of advanced gum disease, which begins with gingivitis, or inflammation around the gums,
Gum disease a problem that afflicts one in seven people under 50 and one in three over 50 can lead to the loss of bone around the teeth and cause pockets to develop between the teeth and gums.
Yogurt's lactobacilli bacteria (the good type) feed on sugar and make lactic acid that attacks the disease causing bugs, Another good reason to eat yogurt.
