The gravitas of Gum Disease in London SE1

18 / 02 / 2013

We know things can go wrong in the mouth, which is why we have our dentist to look after us when problems crop up in London SE1. But this reliance on the dentist can breed complacency and ignorance and you should never take problems with a pinch of salt. One such evil is gum disease: this bad boy takes hold anywhere poor oral hygiene is evident in the mouth. Unchecked tooth decay will soon start to infect the gums as well as the teeth and probably the first sign of this is blood on the toothbrush after cleaning. This is where the disease needs checking and quickly. You need to change your oral hygiene completely, use herbal products maybe to sooth your gums, massage your gums, your diet should be improved and you should always keep your mouth hydrated. On top of this, you’ll need to get regular deep cleaning below the gum-line from your dentist. If you decide to be flippant at this stage, then your gums will become badly infected, recede and your teeth will loosen and fall out. However, gum disease doesn’t just ravish the mouth, it infects the rest of your body by leaking toxins into the bloodstream and over the years, your vital organs will become infected and fail.
