Advanced Gum Disease Treatment

For many people, gum disease can become a serious health risk when it reaches an advanced stage. Many experts in the dental field say that poor brushing habits and an overall lack of oral hygiene are to blame for this issue, and have become increasingly concerned with combating this growing problem. Though many dental professionals treat gum disease through the use of antibiotics and surgical procedures, it has also come to light that simple oral irrigation can be just as effective as these measures.

When gums become inflamed and red in appearance, it signals the start of gum disease. If caught in this early stage, gum disease can easily be stopped before it reaches an advanced level, also known as periodontitis. When gum disease reaches this advanced stage, it becomes a severe problem that can have dire consequences and require significant intervention. It is important to remember that gum disease is caused by the presence of bacteria on your gums that leads to an infection. Therefore, working to eliminate these bacteria from your mouth, including your gums, must be the highest priority when it comes to a treatment plan.

Like most other parts of your body, your mouth contains what is considered both “bad” and “good” bacteria. Therefore, it is important to use a method to rid your mouth and gums of these “bad” bacteria while also not eliminating the presence of “good” bacteria in the process. This very fact is what makes oral irrigation such an effective tool in treating and preventing gum disease. Most dental professional recommend oral irrigation as a way to clean both your teeth and gums, eliminating “bad” bacteria and flushing out food particles that often cannot be reached by brushing alone.

Oral irrigators use a pressurized stream of water to gently flush both bacteria and food particles from your mouth. Likewise, oral irrigation can be used to flush the infection caused by gum disease and works to keep this issue in check by keeping your gums clean. Recent studies, say industry experts, show that oral irrigation is an effective way to treat even advanced gum disease gently through the use of oral irrigators.

Are You Suffering From Gum Disease?

Do you believe your Dentist when they say that rubbing a piece of string (floss) on the infection will cure it?

Hello. This is Tom Spaulding, President of Oral Breeze. I know about gum disease because I suffered from it for years. And I know about treating it because I invented a home remedy that worked for me and 1000′s of others.

Let’s take a frank look at gum disease and a solution that might be right for you.

Getting Gum Disease is Self-Inflicted.
In almost all cases gum disease is a self-inflicted ailment caused by improper cleaning of the teeth and gums.
  1. Food trapped under the gums combines with bacteria to create plaque, a “toxic stew” that irritates the gums and makes them bleed.
  2. This colorless film of sticky material containing food particles, bacteria, and saliva attaches itself to the tooth above and below the gum line encouraging advanced gum disease and tooth decay.
  3. Then plaque, the “toxic stew,” hardens into tartar (calculus) in just 24 hours. B then the damage is done – only a dentist can remove tartar. Each day this “contaminated crust” grows and inflames the gums.
  4. That’s why you need to remove plaque every day, no matter what, to avoid advanced gum disease. But brushing alone does not remove the plaque.
  5. Curing Gum Disease is Self-Directed. The good news is that you can also be responsible for reversing and preventing all but the most serious forms of periodontitis.
  6. Regardless of what happens in the dental chair, it’s what happens in your bathroom that determines the success or failure of your gum disease treatment.
  7. Unfortunately, most home remedies such as salves and creams merely treat the inflammation symptoms and don’t remove the popcorn kernels or the plaque build up that ultimately leads to gingivitis and periodontitis.
  8. Reversing and preventing gum disease is all about daily plaque control. That means, in most cases, stopping the plaque in your mouth is really in your own hands. Brushing every day is a good start, but it is not enough.

Dental professionals recommend oral irrigation as an effective way to implement daily plaque control. Oral Irrigation is an Effective Gum Disease Treatment.

Attaching to a water source such as a sink tap, oral irrigators flood the mouth and gum pockets with a jet of water under pressure to flush offending food particles and bacteria from below the gum line.

In fact, research at the UNMC College of Dentistry, Lincoln, NE indicates “that when combined with brushing, oral irrigation is an effective alternative to brushing and flossing for reducing bleeding, gingival inflammation, and plaque removal.”

Some Dentist’s still recommend flossing. The site of the infection is anywhere from 4 to 10 mm deep in the gum tissue. Your teeth are not infected, your gums are. The floss will reach 2 or 3 mm at most. The big question here is, “How does rubbing a piece of string (floss) on my tooth cure an infection deep into my gums? If I told my Doctor I was gong to rub string on the infection on my arm to cure it, he would have me committed.

We bandage and put dressings on wounds to keep them clean and prevent infection. You must keep the infected site clean on a daily basis. Floss will not do it.

Oral irrigation is effective for another reason. Unlike flossing, irrigating is a pleasant experience you will want to repeat every day. And it takes only 15 seconds. If You Choose Oral Irrigation, Choose OralBreeze.
