Background: Gingivitis is a disease that is closely related to the problem of oral hygiene. The lower a person's oral hygiene, the more easily attacked by gingivitis. The risk of gingivitis can be reduced by consuming marine fish. The higher level of marine fish consumption, the lower gingival index. High fat marine animals, cod fish oil, and oil fish are omega-3 sources. Omega-3 has been proven to cure inflammation in studies in vivo and in vitro. Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of consumption patterns of marine fish with gingivitis status in children aged 12-13 years in SMP N 2 Kretek in 2019.
