Irregular brushing your teeth is not just unhygienic but also unhealthy. When you skip brushing your teeth after a meal, the food particles will remain stuck in your teeth until a sticky film of bacteria builds up, and then later, it hardens. Even if you brush regularly, not all food particles are removed. These remaining particles can still turn into plaque. If these plaque are not thoroughly removed immediately, it will cause an infection that will progress to periodontal (gum) disease. It is a gum disease that is caused by the buildup of bacteria. Aside from bacteria, some factors can lead to infection like; smoking, diabetes, aids, and some medications that decrease the flow of saliva.

Treatment Of Periodontal (gum) Disease

If recently you have inflamed gums, it is a sign that your body is protecting itself from infection. Meaning, gum disease is progressing. Remember, the most significant gesture of periodontal disease is inflammation. So how do we treat periodontal disease? The treatment of your periodontal disease will depend upon its severity. The following are ways to cure this condition:

  1. Non- surgical treatment – this approach involves scraping off the plaque and tartar from your teeth to the root surfaces. This procedure is fast and may take only one visit to your dentist.
  2. Pocket reduction treatment – This procedure is done after cleaning and scraping your tooth; it can’t fit again into its gum pockets, making tooth loss. It then requires pocket reduction surgery. It is done by folding back the gum tissue and removing the bacteria that accumulates in the gums. After that, your dentist will smooth the damaged areas of bone so that your gum tissue will reattach to a new healthy bone.
  3. Gum drafts – It is done by taking out gum tissue from your palate to cover exposed roots. This procedure will reduce sensitivity and will stop the development of gum recession, and, at the same time, prevent tooth decay.
  4. Laser therapy – is a less invasive procedure that is said to have a shorter recovery period.
  5. Periodontal abscess clearing – abscess develops when periodontic becomes severe. A clearing procedure must clean and drain the abscess area. You will be given antibiotics to heal the infection quickly.
  6. Regenerative procedure –  is a surgical procedure done by bone grafting in the impacted bone caused by bacteria. This procedure is done by clearing out the bacteria and placing a synthetic bone on the losing bone.

Final Words

Treating your gum disease in the early stage is the best thing to do to avoid further complications and, of course, to save your money for paying for an expensive procedure. This condition is easily avoidable if you know the basics of taking care of your mouth and teeth. You need to maintain excellent oral hygiene and avoid the risk factors that can lead to unhealthy gums. A regular dentist visit is a wise move. Because the sooner you will get treatment, the higher possibility that you will not lose a tooth.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
