By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | February 15th 2012 | Views:

Periodontal diseases or gum diseases as they are called in lay terms is one of the most often neglected conditions of the body. They are certain to affect almost any body organs and in pregnant women even low infant weight and premature birth have been traced to poor periodontal health. That is probably the reason why we see so many patients with other adverse conditions being referred to the dentist these days. Poor gum health can make managing diabetic condition that much more difficult. And periodontal conditions can last for many years and even for a lifetime if left untreated. In fact poor gum conditions are even known to cause heart ailments, hearing impairments and strokes. Besides, poor oral hygiene can be embarrassing at the work place. Most treatments for poor gum conditions are basic. All that you will need to do is brush your teeth at least two times a day; once before you retire for the day, floss a couple of times every week and prevent food particles sticking between the teeth, especially animal flesh.

Prevention is often the best way to control periodontal diseases and more important is recognizing that you have one and seeking treatment at the earliest. Periodontal diseases generally take longer time to be treated and one has to make many visits to the dentist’s office. If you are advised to remove your tooth by the dentist then get it done immediately. Procrastinating on your decision can make your gum condition that much more difficult to treat and can be very excruciating as well. If you are very early into an adverse periodontal condition then you should consider some at-home treatments, and remember that busy dentists will not tell you everything that you will need to do. And here are some of the treatments you can try. Nevertheless make it a habit to visit the dentist at least 2 times in a year for a thorough check up and there cannot be anything better than that.

1. Clean habits are important for a having healthy gums and smoking is not one of it certainly. The nicotine present in cigarettes can play havoc with your gums although you may not recognize that by instinct. So take the first step, and that means giving up cigarettes immediately.

2. Brushing is a must, but when you do it too vigorously. Select an appropriate tooth brush based on your gum condition. If you have one that is healthy then the softer bristles are the best. Use rounded movement with a soft touch on the gums. Excessive pressure can cause your gum tissues to tear and bleed. So select the right brush, and if you are in doubt talk to a dentist.

3. Rinse your mouth and gargle as well. You can try one of the mouthwashes that are sold across the counter without a prescription. If you are in doubt about the efficacy of a product then talk to your dentist and he can even prescribe something better like the ones that contain chlorhexidine. They will help retard plaque forming on your teeth.

4. Moderate on spicy foods that are acidic. They are sure to eat away the enamel that forms a crown on the teeth. There cannot anything more than a tooth with a poor coat of enamel to cause periodontal disease. That doesn’t mean stay away from tasty food. Do eat them but do it consciously and carefully.

5. Avoid biting on bones or chewing on to it. They are literally capable of breaking down the enamel on your teeth and leaving your teeth and gum prone to diseases and plaque formation. Never try applying powered aspirin on the gums for pain relief. The relief is usually momentary but the harmful effect will negatively linger on for a long time. And that is no good for a healthy gum.
