Bleeding gums, inflammation of the gums, gum infections and increased sensitivity of the gums and teeth are symptoms that indicate gingivitis or other oral diseases. Untreated gum disease and infection can sometimes lead to even heart disease and stroke. Gum disease refers to inflammation of the soft tissue and loss of bone that surrounds the teeth and holds them in place.
Gum disease is caused by toxins secreted by bacteria in "plaque" that accumulate over time along the gum line. It was determined the toxins produced by the bacteria, not the bacteria themselves, killed the rabbits, and it was supposed the toxic substances in the tooth would gradually diminish with each implantation.
You may suffer discoloration of the gums, including severe redness, or even a paleness on the affected areas. Any open or draining sores on the sides of the gum are also a tell-tale sign of this dental problem. If your gums start to bleed when you brush your teeth, this may be the sign of gum infection.
Your dentist can examine the infected area for periodontal pockets. These pockets develop when the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth. The health of your teeth and gums are also directly related to your overall health. If you lead an unhealthy way of life, and eat all sorts of junk food, chances are your gums are not going to be in a healthy state at all.
If your gum infection is worse and the dentist diagnoses you with periodontitis, additional measures will have to be taken to get your condition under control. Instead of using toothpaste when brushing your teeth, drop a couple of drops of OraMD on the toothbrush then brush your teeth as usual. Brushing your tongue gently doesn't hurt either.
Bones and teeth depend heavily on sufficient supplies of calcium. The level of calcium in, the body depends on how well it's absorbed in the gut. Calcium will not be absorbed in the colon if there is insufficient vitamin D. By not practicing healthy oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing your teeth, food remains in between your teeth where bacteria collects and consequently gives off a malodorous odor.
Even more is that if gum disease is left untreated, it can have a marked impact on your quality of life. Tooth extractions are not only costly but losing a tooth will alter how you can chew food, what kinds of foods you can eat and your appearance. The gums begin separating from the teeth, forming pockets (spaces between the teeth and gums) that become infected. It is extremely disturbing to think about all the degenerative diseases which exist and are bankrupting our people and our country. Worst of all is the fact so many people are dying of afflictions which could be alleviated.
The bacteria that cause infectious diseases such as measles, scarlet fever, mumps, chicken pox, etc. are found to live and act virtually the same way from patient to patient. Most dentists would say that even though this patient had severe osteitis, her root canal fillings appeared satisfactory and the root of the upper left second bicuspid appeared relatively easy to treat.
