Gum Disease - the Silent Assassin
Updated: Dec 29, 2019
Growing up, the concept of dental treatment was largely about the dentist needing to drill and fill because there were cavities from tooth decay.
There was little emphasis on the importance of the health of the gums.
When someone gets a hole in a tooth from decay there is usually some tangible evidence either because there is sensitivity and pain, or visual sign or feeling the cavity in the mouth.
Although there are signs of gum disease they are less obvious. In many people there is no pain and therefore no cause to action.
Gum disease is arguably the most common disease worldwide.
It presents in a more subtle way. There is both a local health issue as well as a whole body issue.
The local health issue is related to a development of pathogenic bacteria that accumulates on the surface of the teeth both above and below the gum line.
The whole body issue relates to chronic inflammation, and connective tissue breakdown that leads to the loosening of the teeth in jaw. This process is be driven by poor nutrition, destructive bacteria and toxic exposure. Toxicity can be associated with an excess of something the body does not need, or an excess of something the body does need. (Iron is a great example of this)
In the treatment of gum disease it is ideal to address the local and whole body issues as well as the physical and metaphysical aspects to healing.
My clinical protocol includes Ozone therapy can be used locally to kill the pathogenic bacteria as well as a natural anti inflammatory tooth polish and gum serum.
In a Whole Health session we address the metaphysical aspect of the gums as your support, reflecting the structure of connectivity and support you have in your life.
We also determine a personal regime for improving gut health, simple steps of upgrading nutrition with fermented foods and supplementing the diet with probiotics, enzymes, and antioxidants like Vitamin C can make a huge difference fast
Address this early and you can avoid loose and premature loss of teeth, ensuring the continued health of the mouth teeth and gums reflected in general vitality and wellbeing
