Pyorrhea(Gum Disease) is an advanced form of gingivitis. There is also an advanced form of pyorrhea, where the teeth begin to lose their solid attachment to the gums and may fall out.
Gingivitis is an infection of the gums and the most important cause is poor dental hygiene. Toxins in the system caused from wrong diet and poor elimination also contribute.
The signs of the pyorrhea appearance: Bleeding of the gums, gingival itchiness (this itch sensation of discomfort) and gingival reaction (after the clinical examination) and the osseous reaction (after the radiologic examination).
Bleeding and swelling of the gums. In bad cases the gums recede and the teeth become loose.
The symptoms of the attack of the bacilli were said to be receding and bleeding gums and loosening teeth. Such symptoms are those of early pyorrhea. In this disease, if the process continues, the gums become infected and ooze pus and blood. The teeth themselves eventually become riddled with decay. The end result of the process is loss of teeth because they have to be extracted, or because they fall out.
Pyorrhea Treatment/Home Remedies:-
After brushing, take some mustard oil and add a pinch of salt to it. Rub this mixture on the gums, with the tip of your forefinger. An alternative would be to soak cotton ball in mustard oil and rub it on the gums.
In a bowl of water, immerse some parwal leaves, ginger, black pepper, peepal root and rock salt. Boil the water until the decoction is ready. Now, strain it with a cloth and allow it to cool. Use this decoction for gargling.
Crush some pepper to form a fine powder. Add some salt to it. Now, massage the mixture onto the gums, several times a day. This is an effective way to cure pyorrhea.
Another effective remedy would be to have guava. Cut a guava into 4 pieces and sprinkle some salt over them. Now, bite each of the pieces and eat them. It might sound foolish but this would smear vitamin C on the teeth, thereby treating pyorrhea.
