Periodontal disease or Gum disease is the cause for much pain and suffering, and inevitably leads to receding gums, bone loss, and eventually tooth loss. Classic therapy may involve multiple incidents of dental surgery over an extended time period. And it is a recurring disease, ravaging your oral cavity for years, or even decades.
So, how can you prevent surgery, or if you have already had surgery, how can you prevent it from happening again and again? Obviously,
after you have noticed the first signs of periodontal disease,
the battle against
periodontal disease starts with your own determination to make a change in your dental hygiene habits. But in addition to your
resolution in periodontal disease, you also need the right dental care system.
To be successful in fighting periodontal disease, a
dental care system must address three critical areas simultaneously: it must fight bacteria, eliminate pain and bleeding, and clean efficiently between your teeth:
1. Bacteria penetrate and infect the space just below the gum line The
first visible signs of periodontal disease are red and tender gums, a result of the irritation and inflammation caused by bacteria that populate the space between the gums and the teeth (perio pockets). These "perio pockets" are literally seething with dangerous bacteria that compromise both the gums and the roots of teeth. In an advanced stage of periodontal disease, these bacteria even destroy the very bone that holds the teeth. Once the bacteria have destroyed enough tissue below the gum line, just brushing your teeth superficially is not enough to fight periodontal disease!
2. Painful, Bleeding gums actually prevent you from maintaining a healthy oral cavity. Why? Because you unconsciously brush less thoroughly if your toothbrush hurts your gums or causes bleeding. Plaque, which contains a high concentration of dangerous bacteria, begins to coat your teeth, especially in the hard to reach areas close to the gums. The plaque hardens and irritates the gums even more. The result? You brush less and less thoroughly, and periodontal disease
penetrates deeper and deeper into the perio pockets, the areas between the teeth and the gums. Now, brushing your teeth is often just not good enough to oust the bacteria from their hiding place deep below the gum line. Don't let it come to this!
3. Periodontal Disease begins between your teeth, so you should pay special attention to interdental care. But standard flossing devices are difficult to use in some areas of the mouth and fall short of eliminating all deposits between the teeth. Any oral hygiene effort that does not address the space between the teeth cannot succeed!
So, the ideal dental care system would need to include a component that
bacteria , especially those hidden deep in the pockets between the gums and the teeth. A second critical component is a cleaning system that
does not irritate your already red and swollen gums, but ensures a thorough cleaning experience, and lastly, the system would include a component that promotes thorough
cleaning between the teeth without the hassle of using standard floss.
