|Home Remedies for Pyorrhea.
Pyorrhea, or periodontal disease, to give it a proper medical term, is a disease of the gums. It is one of the most widely
prevalent diseases. It affects the membrane surrounding the roots of the teeth and leads to loosening of the teeth, pus
formation, and shrinkage of the gum. This disease is the primary cause for tooth loss among adults.
The gums become tender, and on pressing, pus oozes out along the margin of the teeth. Pus from the cavities continually
finds its way into the stomach. When the disease is far advanced, the gums become swollen, and the stomach, being dosed
with increasing quantities of pus, does not function properly.A sepsis may appear in various forms; digestion gets disturbed,
liver trouble sets in, and the whole system is adversely affected.
|Pyorrhea is triggered by bacterial activity. A thin layer of harmful bacteria is continuously building up on our teeth. If it is not
removed by tooth-cleansing, especially after meals, it forms an organized mass on the tooth surface in a short time. This is
referred to as a 'bacterial plaque'. When accumulated, bacteria in plaque produce many toxins which irritate the gums, causing
them to become inflamed, tender, and prone to bleeding easily. The bacterial activity is, however, facilitated by the lowered
vitality of the system. Other factors contributing to the development of pyorrhea include injury to the gums and supporting
structures by physical and chemical irritants in the mouth, incorrect brushing, stagnation of food particles, and improper use of
