  • Gingivitis Symptoms
    By Health Blog on May 30, 2011 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments

    Gingivitis is the inflammation of gum tissue often caused by poor dental hygiene. It can cause swollen gums, gum tissue to become inflamed red or purple, bleeding gums, and gums which are often sore or tender.

    The symptoms of gingivitis

    While proper oral hygiene is the most common preventative cure for gingivitis, there are two different types of the periodontal disease; dental plaque induced gingivitis and the non plaque induced gingival lesions. The most common type of gingivitis is plaque induced which is usually prevented with improved dental hygiene.

    If gingivitis symptoms occur you should first see your dentist or dental hygienist, but if the symptoms are very mild or you simply wish to avoid plaque induced gingivitis, there are a few things you can do.

    • Brush your teeth daily, morning and night
    • Floss your teeth daily
    • Regularly use an anti gingivitis mouthwash recommended by your dentist
    • It is also recommended to have your teeth cleaned regularly by your dentist to remove the plaque build up which brushing misses.

    Good oral hygiene promotes all over general health and eliminates any health problems caused by poor oral hygiene.

  • Does bleeding Gums can lead to Heart Attacks & Strokes?
    By Health Blog on April 27, 2010 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments

    Think about this for a moment: You wake up in the morning, go into your bathroom and brush your teeth. After a few brush strokes, you notice in the mirror or sink, that your gums are bleeding. But, you just ignore it & keep on brushing. Would you ever ignore bleeding if it came from your eye, ear, or hand? Of course not! Once bleeding starts – it’s a sign that something is terribly wrong! It also means that your body armor (your skin, or in this case – your oral mucosa) is open & susceptible to invasion by unwanted bacteria & viruses.

    The skin of the oral cavity is known as Oral Mucosa. It is very rich with blood vessels and if outside bacteria and the toxins they produce get into the blood stream, they are off and running throughout your body. As the illustration above shows, plaque and tartar buildup destroy the health of your gums and allow the supporting bone to weaken – leading to eventual tooth loss, if not caught in time. However, what the most recent International research shows and what American Dentistry has failed to comprehend is that Sulfur Compounds produced by anaerobic bacteria are the True Villains in many oral disorders – from swollen and bleeding gums to Bad Breath. And now as groundbreaking research shows, eventually to systemic problems such s heart disease, strokes, and pneumonia.

    Anaerobic Bacteria Produce Sulfur Compounds, Which Allow Toxins to Enter Your Blood Stream through swelled Gums! These anaerobic bacteria have the ability to extract sulfur compounds from proteins produced when your gums are swollen and bleeding. Some of these sulfur compounds are classified as Thiols. These dangerous sulfur compounds have recently been found to allow Other Bacteria – and the toxins they produce – to infiltrate below the gumline. If your gums are already swollen and bleeding, these bacterial toxins may get into your bloodstream and travel throughout your body, most significantly to your brain – leading to strokes, or to the heart – leading to heart attacks!
