Gum disease is inflammatory, but it is due to a specific bacteria, according to the article: "Porphyromonas gingivalis, the key bacteria in chronic gum disease." So reducing inflammation, in general, isn't necessarily going to reduce that particular bacteria, or the toxins from that bacteria (which they think is the cause). They're working on a vaccine though.
