Periodontitis: What Is It, and How To Prevent It Today!

No Gum Disease ... No Problem!

 

When people think about their oral health, they usually think of cavities, plaque, or problems relating to their teeth. But oftentimes the most serious problems are lurking right there under the surface, along your gum line.

In fact, one of the most dangerous oral health problems you can have is a particularly severe gum disease. Its name?

 

PERIODONTITIS

 

And not only is periodontitis a problem on its own, but it can lead to other oral health problems and complications you don't definitely don't want.

But new research is proving that prevention is possible with the right ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE ROUTINE and other lifestyle changes. (1)

In this blog we talk about what periodontitis is, what causes it, and how to PREVENT IT TODAY!

 

WHAT IS PERIODONTITIS

 

Though many people simply consider your gums as always being healthy and ready to support your teeth, this isn't true. In fact, periodontitis is a severe disease that affects your gums.

Periodontitis is, in simple terms, caused by a buildup of bacteria in your mouth. This bacteria and food buildup is often better known as plaque. (2)

And though many people simply consider the broad term gum disease as every problem inside your mouth pertaining to your gums, periodontitis is a type of gum disease, and a particularly dangerous one. (3)

 

FUN FACT: Periodontitis literally means inflammation around the tooth. Prevent inflammation today by rinsing with ALL-NATURAL MOUTHWASH containing PEPPERMINT and TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OILS!(4)

 

Though periodontitis is a severe form of gum disease, it may not the first kind of gum disease people experience. In fact, gingivitis, a milder form of gum disease, can lead to periodontitis if it is not REMEDIED first.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to keep gingivitis from leading to periodontitis because there isn't always a clear sign that you have it, which can lead to a worsening of symptoms over time. (5)

The problem with leaving periodontitis unchecked is that the gum disease damages the structures that hold your teeth in place, leading to long-term tooth problems that can be really difficult to reverse. (6)

 

To whiten your teeth and pull the toxins that cause periodontitis, check out Garner's Garden 100% All-Natural Tooth Powder, which contains bentonite clay, an all-natural ingredient that absorbs and removes impurities and toxins! Also removes plaque!

 

CAUSES OF PERIODONTITIS

 

Though periodontitis (and all gum diseases) are easily overlooked, it's important to take the NECESSARY STEPS to care for your mouth today to avoid problems tomorrow.

To stave off gum disease, it's important you PREVENT bacteria and plaque buildups from accumulating in your mouth, as they cause most oral health problems you don't want. (7)

It's also important that you don't smoke, and remain calm and relaxed, as stress can be a silent cause of periodontitis and gum disease. (8)

 

FUN FACT: Some of the dangerous effects of periodontitis are not reversible in their late stages. Prevent a problem before there is one by inhibiting the growth of bacteria in your mouth by rinsing with ALL-NATURAL OXY PULLING MOUTHWASH! (9)

 

Believe it or not, a chain reaction causes periodontitis, and surprisingly, your immune system is partially to blame.

This is because when plaque (mucus, food, and other compounds in your mouth) forms around your teeth, your immune system attacks the area, trying to eliminate your built-up bacteria, which leads to inflammation and damage. (10)

It's also important to understand that periodontitis results from an imbalance in the amount of bacteria in your mouth, including the bacteria you rely on to get rid of unhealthy microbes. (11)

 

To control the amount of bacteria in your mouth, check out Garner's Garden 100% All-Natural Oxy Pulling Mouthwash, which kills fungal spores and stops the accumulation of dangerous bacteria! Also effectively repels plaque with the strength of Food Grade H202!

 

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE IT

 

Though dirty teeth can often be seen easily through the mirror, and you can sometimes feel the plaque on your teeth with your tongue, it's not always easy to tell if you have periodontitis.

One way to tell if you have periodontitis is by inspecting your gums. If they're inflamed, discolored, or separating from your teeth, you may be suffering from gum disease. (12)

Another possible indicator that you may have peridontitis is if your gums look smaller, or if your teeth look longer, than usual. This can mean your bones are beginning to break down, and your gums are starting to weaken. (13)

 

FUN FACT: About half of all adults over 30 suffer from gum disease, and many don't even know it! Protect your ORAL HEALTH today by brushing with 100% ALL-NATURAL TOOTH POWDER! (14)

 

There are other ways that don't involve inspecting your gums that can reveal potential periodontitis. One way is to smell your breath. Bad breath can mean there's a buildup of bacteria in your mouth, a possible sign of periodontitis.

Bleeding from your gums after brushing your teeth can also be a sign of gum disease and potential periodontitis. (15)

And since periodontitis is a severe form of gum disease, it's also important you listen to the rest of your body. Inflammation or pain in and around your mouth and body can be a sign of periodontitis or another oral health problem. (16)

 

To remedy both inflammation and bad breath, check out Garner's Garden 100% All-Natural Mouthwash, which soothes your mouth and throat, while also reducing oral pain and your chances of infection! Available in REGULAR STRENGTH and REDUCED STRENGTH varieties!

 

 

 

 

CONSEQUENCES OF PERIODONTITIS

 

Your gums and surrounding bones are there to protect your teeth. As with many things, having a poor foundation can lead to the entire structure being in danger. The same is true with periodontitis.

With periodontitis, your gums actually separate from your teeth, you lose bone, and your teeth can fall out. (17)

Not only that, but the longer you have periodontitis, the greater the chances are that you will suffer from infections, as well as experience more pain and discomfort. (18)

 

FUN FACT: Inflammation of your gums can lead to inflammation in tissues and surrounding organs, including your heart! Protect your entire body today by following an ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE ROUTINE! (19)

 

We know that periodontitis involves bacteria that break down your gums, and make their way through your gum line, causing problems to both your gums and teeth. But what happens to the bacteria then?

After breaking through your gum line, bacteria is then easily able to enter your blood, where it can cause infections like endocarditis or potentially life-threatening infections within your heart valve. (20)

And perhaps the greatest connection of periodontitis is with diabetes, as the gum disease impacts your ability to control glucose, mostly because of the inflammation it causes. (21)

 

A great way to kill odor-causing bacteria and freshen your breath is by using Garner's Garden 100% All-Natural Breath Freshener Spray, which protects you from bacteria buildups throughout the day! Also helps prevent cavities!

 

 

 

HOW TO PREVENT PERIODONTITIS

 

Okay, so we know periodontitis is dangerous, which means you definitely don't want it. And thankfully there are ways to PREVENT IT today!

As with most oral health problems, some of the best ways to prevent future problems is by having a healthy ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE ROUTINE, which includes BRUSHING your teeth twice a day, and using MOUTHWASH. (22)

Using ALL-NATURAL MOUTHWASH after brushing is important because brushing only reaches around 25% of your mouth, whereas mouthwashes can reach your entire mouth, lowering your chances of developing gum disease. (23)

 

FUN FACT: The human body has ten times the amount of bacteria than it has human cells. Prevent a buildup of bacteria in your mouth by drawing out toxins with the ACTIVATED CHARCOAL in our 100% ALL-NATURAL OXY PULLING MOUTHWASH! (24)

 

Though ALL-NATURAL ORAL CARE is essential in preventing gum disease (and tooth decay too), there are other lifestyle changes you can make to help stave off periodontitis. One of these is stress prevention.

Stress is known to weaken your immune system, making the fight against bacterial buildup and plaque all the more difficult. That's why lowering your stress can also improve your oral health. (25)

It's also important that you monitor what you're putting into your body, as eating a balanced diet, while limiting your intake of sugary and acidic foods, can lower your chances of severe periodontitis. (26)
