Teeth, Gums, and Gum Disease

We are constantly bombarded with messages about our health. The heart people are worried about our smoking, fat intake, and exercise. The diabetes people are worried about pretty much the same things and now the dental community is making its presence known with all of their messages about teeth, gums, and gum disease. It’s really getting to be message overload and there is no way you are going to remember all of this stuff. It is always recommended to everything you can for the benefit of your health and gum health is no exception. Of course you can choose to ignore the advice of your dentist and just hope gum disease passes you by without any help from you, but take a look at what you have to look forward to if you leave your periodontal health to chance.


  • serious changes to the appearance of your mouth
  • chronic bad breath anyone?
  • do what you have to stop this future


So a little bleeding around the gum line when you brush your teeth doesn’t bother you? Okay, how about huge pockets of infection along the gum line? Does that bother you? If it doesn’t you may want to consider the possibility that it may bother that cute guy or girl sitting next to you on the train. Your teeth could begin to discolor and if left untreated, gum disease can cause loose teeth or even for your teeth to fall out. Receding gums really are a problem when they are too sick to even do their job of holding onto your teeth.


Now you are saying that appearance never meant much to you anyway. That’s fine. Obviously it won’t matter when you have to hold your hand over your mouth every time you talk to your boss so he or she won’t notice the noxious clouds floating out of your mouth. The boss may think you are a biohazard. Halitosis is another fun filled aspect of having untreated gum disease.


Are you ready to talk about what you need to do to avoid this future? Of course you are. Your teeth, gums, and overall oral health would benefit from including natural dental products to your regime like OraMD. Often used as a treatment for gum disease, this oil rich cleanser and mouthwash is perfect for promoting the healing of infection and protecting a healthy mouth from the possibility.
