The most common disease in the human adult population is Periodontal disease also known as gum disease or pyorrhea. Periodontal health is paramount because if it is not maintained nothing else that you do will be of any benefit.
The periodontium is the foundation of your teeth. Like the foundations of a house, if this foundation is undermined, the teeth will move, collapse or simply become loose, leading to infection and possibly requiring extraction.
Periodontal disease can take on many different forms, but is always a result of the interaction of your bodys reaction to a bacterial attack. Everybody will react differently to the same bacteria. There is a very strong genetic link that determines the amount of destruction that occurs.
Surveys have concluded that approximately 80% of the population has some form of disease with approximately 25% having extensive disease.
Periodontitis is responsible for:
- Loss of attachment to the tooth leading to loose teeth
- Bad odour in the mouth
- Recession of the gums leading to an unattractive “long in the tooth” look
- Frequent bleeding of the gums
- Gum abscesses and pain
Periodontitis is also working to:
- Increase the chance of heart attacks
- Increase the chance of strokes
- Increase the chance of diabetes or making diabetes uncontrollable
- Increase in gastro intestinal problems
- Increase in low birth weight babies
Of course prevention is the best form of treatment, what you do at home will ultimately be reflected in your periodontal tissues.
