Do You (or does someone you know) Have Gingivitis?
1 in 2 people are believed to have Gingivitis
Gingivitis, also generally called Gum Disease or periodontal disease, describes the events that begin with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end – if not properly treated – with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth.
What’s the Difference Between Gingivitis and Periodontitis?
Gingivitis (gum inflammation) usually precedes periodontitis (gum disease). However, it is important to know that not all gingivitis progresses to periodontitis.
In the early stage of gingivitis, bacteria in plaquebuild up, causes the gums to become inflamed (red and swollen) and often easily bleed during tooth brushing. Although the gums may be irritated, the teeth are still firmly planted in their sockets. No irreversible bone or other tissue damage has occurred at this stage.
When gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis. In a person with periodontitis, the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line.
Toxins or poisons – produced by the bacteria in plaque as well as the body’s “good” enzymes involved in fighting infections – start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. As the disease progresses, the pockets deepen and more gum tissue and bone are destroyed. When this happens, teeth are no longer anchored in place, they become loose and tooth loss occurs. Gum disease, in fact, is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Dennis Richard has been using activated Sodium Chlorite for over 3 years and managed to save all his remaining teeth (his dentist recommended that they be pulled out prior to Dennis switching to the activated Sodium Chlorite – as recommended by Jim Humble). To this day, Dennis does not have any plaque on his teeth, they have all tightened up again, and are perfectly healthy, and he only uses the activated Sodium Chlorite instead of any toothpaste. To use Sodium Chlorite to brush your teeth, just brush your teeth as you normally would, but instead of putting toothpaste on your brush, you just dip your toothbrush into the Activated Sodium Chlorite solution, and rinse the brush before each new section of your mouth.
