There is evil, and then there is pure evil, and if you want to put this into oral terms, then it is gum disease. It’s a condition that will creep up on you without you noticing until you start to find blood on your toothbrush and this is the time to act because if you don’t, you will lose all of your teeth; worse still, the toxins from the disease will poison your entire body and cause serious conditions throughout, such as heart disease, liver failure and possibly diabetes. The perfect person to get on your side should you start to have problems, is a hygienist. Not only can they x-ray you and give you a thorough clean below the gum line to rid you of infection, but they will advise you on how to battle it at home. Causes of gum disease are linked to a wayward lifestyle, a dodgy diet and poor oral hygiene and if you want to avoid the consequences caused by this condition, you are going to have to turn your life around and work hard to tackle these aspects of your life. Your hygienist can tell you all you need to know and also introduce you to the world of alternative medicines- herbal remedies; they are excellent for taking the fight to gum disease and may just save your life in the long run.
