My entire family has been receiving excellent dental care from Dr. Kavita Kumar for years. Her clinic is very clean and she and her staff ensure absolute hygiene. Her equipment is modern and latest in oral care. Dr. Kavita Kumar is very efficient, friendly and professional. She explains exactly what is happening and why, as well as giving useful general advice. Dr. Kavita Kumar’s diagnosis of oral diseases, promoting oral health and disease prevention are truly admirable. She proposes the perfect (and also pocket friendly) treatment plans to maintain or restore the oral health of her patients. If you're looking for a great dentist especially in the Western suburbs, Dr. Kavita Kumar is your best choice.
I have undergone cosmetic dental treatment from dr. Kavita Kumar. I got a lot of compliments for my smile makeover thanks to dr. Kavita & her expert team. Even while I was abroad for work, I would make sure to visit dr. Kumar’s dental care centre for my routine examination whenever I would come to India. The clinic is extremely hygienic & they provide quality care. Dr. Kavita is an expert in her field. She believes in perfection. I have recommended her to a lot of my friends & family.
Omega-3 fatty acids are 'good' fats that reduce cholesterol levels and 'bad' saturated fats from your body. They belong to a family of unsaturated fatty acids and are necessary for the normal functioning of the body. The body cannot synthesize omega-3 fatty acids; hence, you can get it from sources such as salmon which provides omega-3 fatty acids known as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) and vegetable oils such as soybean oil, rapeseed oil and flaxseed oil that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
How can they help in gum problems?
A study, published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, was based on a survey called the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, researched and studied the effects of consumption of DHA on dental health. After studying data from over 9000 participants, researchers found that the people, who consumed the highest amount DHA amongst all, were 20% less prone to developing periodontitis.
Periodontitis is an inflammatory gum disease caused by bacteria that accumulate around the gums. It causes the gums to recede, leading to the development of gaps between the gums and teeth and loss of bones that provide support to the teeth. Periodontitis may even cause tooth loss.
The research showed that even consuming a small amount of omega-3 fatty acids offered protection against gum diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties, which help relieve inflammation of gums that occurs in periodontitis. Researchers from Kentucky University found that omega-3 fatty acids have anti-bacterial properties, which prevent and cure gum diseases. Gum diseases have been related to other conditions such as heart disease, pneumonia and diabetes, hence keeping gum diseases at bay keeps other fatal diseases away as well.
