How to take control of your oral health
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease, also called advanced gum disease and periodontitis, is a bacterial infection of the gum pockets that has been active for years. The bacteria colonize along and under the gum line and eat (yes eat) living tissue, including gum tissue, bone and ligament that anchor the teeth in the jaws.
That is worth repeating. These disease causing bacteria first eat away at the gum tissue causing ever deepening pockets between the gums and tooth roots. From within these gum pockets, the bacteria colonize and launch an organized attack on the immune system. Not only do the disease causing bacteria eat away at the gum and bone that hold the teeth in the mouth, these bad bugs also swim their way into the bloodstream and access the whole body!
Signs of Periodontal Disease...
Periodontal disease is a slow, silent disease often starting early in a person's life. It's a fact that 65% of 15 year olds have active gum disease. Unfortunately, almost all of these teens are unaware that they are allowing a bacterial infection to organize an attack on their whole body that will result in them living an unhealthier life.
Gum disease starts quietly. One reason why so many people have gum disease is due to how silently and painlessly the bacteria do their dirty work. The signs creep their way into the lives of 9 out of 10 adults! Because the disease builds so slowly, many people don't even know they have it until the disease is in advanced stages.
The general pathway of the disease...
Dangers of Periodontal Disease
Unfortunately, the damage of gum disease doesn't stop in the mouth. In as little as 9 days, the bacteria can irritate the gums enough to cause the skin of the gum to slough off in spots. This is gingivitis and it is demonstrated by gums bleeding during brushing or flossing.
Once the skin has left the gum tissue, the disease causing bacteria have access to tiny blood vessels called capillaries. The bacteria swim into these exposed blood vessels and begin to attack the rest of the body. Scientific research has proven that the same disease causing bacteria that cause gum disease are also found in hardened arterial walls of someone who has coronary heart disease.

What Causes Periodontal Disease?
We can address this question from two perspectives. From an 'in the mouth' perspective, periodontal disease is caused by what are called pathogenic bacteria, literally meaning disease causing bacteria. We call them 'bad bugs' to differentiate them from the beneficial bacteria that help support our health. Science has identified many strains of bad bugs that play a part in creating periodontal disease.
The other perspective we can take to view what is the cause of periodontal disease is from 'a whole body' approach. You see, although the disease causing bacteria do cause the damage of gum disease, they can only flourish in a body that isn't functioning at peak immunity. Therefore, we can make great progress to make our mouths less welcoming to the bad bugs that cause periodontal disease.
Here is a list of factors that contribute to lower our immunity which increases our risk of periodontal disease.
How to Prevent Periodontal Disease
Let's address how to prevent periodontal disease from the same two perspectives.
Preventing periodontal disease from an 'In the mouth' approach:
First, we must keep the bacteria that cause gum disease from colonizing in our mouths. To stop the bad bugs in the mouth, we must
1. commit to regular oral hygiene including twice daily brushing and daily flossing
Here is a video how to brush your teeth to reduce gum disease!
2. use a safe antibacterial product to help us manage the bacteria
The OraWellness Brushing Blend does a fantastic job helping to restore the mouth to health by killing the bacteria that cause gum and periodontal disease.

Preventing periodontal disease from a 'whole body immune' approach:
Here is the list of factors from above that contribute to a lower immunity. Consider how you can improve your immunity in each of these factors.
We will explore each of these subjects in further detail at a later time. For now, you can rest assured that you can stop the damage the bad bugs cause in the mouth by improving your oral hygiene technique and by switching to an oral hygiene product that will effectively kill the bacteria without any harsh chemicals or toxins.
How to stop the damage if you have already have periodontal disease...

"At a recent dental appointment, my hygienist said I had the healthiest gums she had ever seen! Since I had never heard that from her before, I'm confident that using OraWellness for the past 2 years has helped me achieve my healthiest gums! :)" ~ SS, Colorado
"I'm a mother of two and a third on the way. Since giving birth and nursing, my teeth have suffered quite a bit I feel super blessed to have stumbled across your website. Thanks for sending me this amazing stuff called the Healthy Mouth blend and the toothbrushes.
I was so excited to use them on my teeth as well as those of my very young developing children! It was amazingly effective at removing plaque buildup at the gum lines and seriously I've never felt my teeth so clean and fresh after just brushing.
I was even more excited when my biological dentist told me he used the same stuff, how cool! I'm ready to order more brushes and the ora blend for my family and an extra to keep in my purse. God Bless you all."
