Pyorrhea is an older term that used to refer to any kind of gum disease or periodontal disease. In common usage today it generally refers to an advanced stage of periodontal disease known as periodontitis. It is at this stage that the ligaments and bone that support the teeth become inflamed and infected. In most cases it is a result of gingivitis that plaque buildup infects the gums, and can drive a literal wedge between the tooth and gum line. Once these pockets form they can trap food particles that will feed bacteria that is also trapped in them. These pockets can go so deep that they can begin to erode the supporting bone structure and lead to tooth loss. In fact, bone loss from pyorrhea is the primary cause of tooth loss in adults. Signs of pyorrhea Early symptoms of pyorrhea are similar to the symptoms of gingivitis, and include visible changes in the gums. The onset of the disease is marked by bleeding of the gums. As it progresses, the gums recede from the teeth, loosening of the teeth occurs, and the bone structure that supports the teeth can begin to erode. As gum pockets deepen and the jawbone recedes away from the roots of the teeth, the pockets will begin to discharge pus as their infections worsen. The condition can be made worse by increased stress, poor nutrition, poor oral hygiene, and loose or poorly fitting dentures. Signs and symptoms to be aware of are: Inflammation of the gums Loosening of teeth Gum pockets Pus discharge from pockets Mouth ulcers Abscesses Receding gums Bone erosion Progression of pyorrhea Progression Of Pyorrhea • Discoloration of the gums (darker red instead of healthy pink)• Gums begin to recede • Pockets form • Bleeding occurs• Gums pull further away • Pockets deepen • Supporting bone is attacked• Severe recession of gums • Severe bone loss • Severe tooth decay takes place Dangers of pyorrhea It is estimated that 80% of the population has some form of gum disease. It has been a long held belief that periodontal disease was just a dental disease, affecting only the teeth and gums. While it’s true that periodontal disease may originate in the mouth, it is now known that periodontitis is a very serious disease, affecting the entire body and 1 increasing risk of numerous other adverse health effects. The advanced stage of pyorrhea puts those suffering from it at an even higher increased risk for things such as: Increased risk of heart attack by as much as 25% Increased risk of stroke by a factor of 10 Problems controlling both type I and type II diabetes Respiratory disease Pancreatic cancer Premature births Underweight newborns1 Digestive disorders What causes pyorrhea? Pyorrhea is usually a result of gingivitis, a periodontal disease that infects the gum through plaque. This leads to the formation of a pocket between the teeth that trap plaque and food particles. While primarily related to bacteria in th mouth, there are other outside causes for this condition. Things like poor eating habits, excess white bread, sugar, and red meat can contribute. Also, injuries to the gum and supporting structures from improper use of floss or toothpicks, incorrect brushing, physical and chemical irritation of mouth tissues, allergies, and even pregnancy can play parts in the origins of this disease. Some studies suggest that there are also links from chronic illnesses, glandular disorders, blood diseases, and general unhealthy lifestyles. As in most conditions, use of tobacco, alcohol, and drugs will generally make it worse. How to prevent pyorrhea Keep in consideration that plaque can form on teeth as quickly as four hours after you brush. Since bacteria and plaque are the main causes of this condition, the best method of prevention of pyorrhea or any periodontal condition is implementing a good oral hygiene program, and staying away from the commercial products that can increase bacteria growth. Here are some things you can do to prevent pyorrhea and periodontal disease: Brush your teeth twice a day Gargle twice a day Floss every day Don’t use tobacco products Visit the dentist routinely for a check-up and professional cleaning (recommended every 6 months) These measures however, are effective only above and slightly below the gum line. Once periodontal disease develops, more intensive treatments are needed. Treatment of pyorrhea The main goal of the treatment is to control the infection, and if possible, stop it. The road to recovery may take several months, even if it can be attained. Here are some suggestions: The first step is to implement a good oral hygiene program, but in most cases this will not be enough. Especially if you have pockets. Stopping tobacco use will help improve your chances for a successful outcome. Professional teeth cleaning1 from your dentist every 6 months. Your dentist may recommend a deep cleaning (root planning and scaling). This is a painful dental procedure that scrapes the plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planning gets rid of the rough spots on the tooth root where the bacteria gather. Use a strong bacteria fighter that can get into the pockets and kill the bacteria. As we’ve discussed, the most important thing to do to correct pyorrhea before it is too far gone is to implement a solid oral hygiene program. If you’re already doing that and still suffering, it may very well be due to the chemical laden products you’re using. Combining good oral hygiene with a natural product that will eliminate the bacteria which cause the problems.

My mouth is not opened properly from last 1 year, I was chawaing rajnigandha and tulsi from few some year, but from last one year I am not doing this. Please suggest me.

Quit these things for always. They cause very serious oral condition like cancer leukoplakia submucous fibrosis. You may have submucous fibrosis because of chewing tobacco amd beetelnut products. You need to go for thorough investigation and biopsy to know about any transformation. Maintain proper oral hygiene by brushing properly morning and night.

Fruits and vegetables which require continous biting like apples, carrots and corn should be avoided as it can become quite difficult while the braces are on.

I am 64 yrs old 3 months ago I had blood coming out while brushing my teeth and was asked to get my teeth cleaned and prescribed qudrajel. It only gave temp relief and after a month it was re-precribed. But it has not helped and I continue to get blood while brushing. What to do?

There are so many causes of bleeding gums - - brushing too hard - a vitamin deficiency - taking blood thinners or other medications - bleeding or clotting disorders - mouth sores - other medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, leukemia or scurvy. -few advice to stop bleeding gums-- use a soft toothbrush -- and brush properly! brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice a day and after meals. Hard brushing can further damage the soft tissues of your mouth. - floss at least once a day and be sure to floss beyond the gum line to remove more plaque. - control bleeding by applying pressure to the area with a cold compress. - rinse with salt water to keep the area clean. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, which can dry out your mouth. - stay away from smoking and other tobacco products, which can aggravate bleeding gums. - eat a balanced diet and limit snacking between meals.

Well, best treatment option is to go for laminates/ veneers/ crowns in grossly destructed teeth. A famous tooth creme such as tooth mousse and clinpro have been beneficial too.

Home remedies are not for 100% problems, if you are not getting results then visit the experts to get the required results. You are just 13 years old so my advice for you is to just brush properly twice daily, don't try here and there for astonishing results.

Scaling and Polishing for Healthy Teeth

Scaling and Polishing for Healthy Teeth

What is scaling?
Over time, even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque (sticky, soft, bacteria infected layer) and tartar (calcium) deposits build up on your teeth. Scaling removes the tartar and plaque with specialised equipment. Scaling effectively cleans up your teeth by using ultrasound to loosen the tartar and then using tools to scrape it off from the surface of the tooth.

What is polishing?
Polishing is done to remove excess plaque and remove stains. Scaling is always followed by polishing. Polishing also smoothes and shines the teeth to prevent plaque from building up again. It is either done by foam or fluoride gel treatment to reduce the possibility of tooth decay and sensitivity.

Why are they done?
Scaling and polishing are not only done for cosmetic reasons; they are also done for overall oral health. Excessive plaque and tartar buildup will eventually lead to the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive and multiply. The ultimate purpose of polishing and scaling is to clean the surface of the teeth so that the bacteria cannot attach to them and cause serious oral problems (such as gum disease). Also, scaling and polishing offer far better cleaning of your teeth than everyday brushing and flossing.

However, scaling and polishing is not a curative treatment. If your teeth have been damaged by cavities or other oral diseases, you need medical attention.

In fact, professionally, this treatment is called prophylactic treatment; and the word ‘prophylactic’ comes from prophylaxis, which is Greek for ‘to prevent disease’. Thus scaling and polishing is more of a preventive measure than a cure.

Do they hurt?
This process is essentially painless. Most of the people who undergo this treatment usually have the following experiences:

  1. Tickling sensation
  2. Coolness from the water used to clean the mouth
  3. Pressure during the scraping process (The dentist uses specialised tools to “scrape” the tartar deposits off the tooth’s surface). If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
