Periodontal Disease: The Hidden Dangers

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, isn’t just a source of bad breath and bleeding gums. In fact, this dangerous disease has been linked to a variety of different ailments. If you have gum disease, these many dangers will convince you why you need to get it treated as soon as possible. If you are one of the lucky ones who isn’t afflicted, take this information as reasons why you should work to prevent periodontal disease.

Doctors have repeatedly found that periodontal disease has a very strong link with gestational diabetes (as well as other forms of diabetes). If you are at risk for diabetes, you need to protect your gums. Research has even shown that gum disease is a strong predicter of mortality among natives who have diabetes. The bottom line is that if you have diabetes, gum disease makes it worse. People who are at risk of diabetes are more likely to fall victim to the disease if they have sick gums.

Gum disease has also been linked to heart problems such as heart disease and stroke. People who were diagnosed with acute symptoms were much more likely to have gum disease and similar infections. People with gum disease are around two times as likely to suffer from certain forms of heart disease, including coronary artery disease. Periodontal disease has also been proven to exacerbate these conditions in the people who already have them.

Women who are at risk of osteoperosis are also more likely to suffer from it if they have gum disease. They are also at a much higher risk for bone loss in the jawline, as well as tooth loss.

Periodontal disease can also affect unborn babies. Women who have gum disease are more likely to have premature babies, as well as babies with low birth weight. If you are planning to have a baby, make sure you don’t get gum disease.

There is some good news to this. Gum disease is easily treatable when caught in its early stages. Periodontal disease is also easily preventable. You don’t have to risk these deadly diseases if you make an effort to keep your gums clean and healthy.

Blotting : A Natural Cure for Gum Disease

Gum disease needs early cure

Suffering from gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is no laughing matter. Your breath will smell terrible, you will be at a higher risk for heart disease, and advanced gum disease can lead to tooth loss. Bills for dental care can be sky-high, so it can be difficult to get it treated once you have it. Doesn’t sound great, does it?

However, blotting gives people the option of having a cure for gum disease without all the high bills and visits to the dentist.

Surely not? How?

Gum disease is caused by plaque, and regular brushing simply can’t get rid of it all.

Blotting removes the plaque that causes gum disease.

Unlike regular toothbrushes, blotting brushes use a tapping motion to get rid of the plaque that causes cavities, gum disease, and more.

The tiny bristles on the brush go underneath the gums and pull up the plaque. It uses capillary action to remove most of the plaque, and has been proven to be an effective way to prevent against gum disease. It literally blots the plaque off teeth, gums, and everywhere in between.

Unlike many diseases that have to do with oral health, gum disease is a malady where the symptoms can lessen (and then disappear) once the causes have been removed. This means that prevention – and the removal of plaque – is the cure to gum disease. This is also why blotting is a perfect way to cure gum disease before (and after) it happens.

Best of all, using a blotting brush is easy, especially if you get a DVD which explains how to blot your teeth properly.

It can reverse the damage done to teeth, and also reverses the damage done to gums by gum disease. It only takes a couple of minutes a day, and can also provide a gentle massage to teeth as well.

This cure for gum disease is all natural, requires no needles, and has no anesthesia. For people who hate going to the dentist, this is an incredible find.

The Most Important Part of Your Body

Atlas Correction

.

The Liberation

.

When your Atlas bone – the top cervical vertebra, known as C1 – is out of alignment, it affects every organ in the body as well as the central nervous system.

And guess what?

It is out of alignment in almost everyone, making it virtually impossible for us to function correctly.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Because of a misaligned atlas we are not able to listen to our body’s signals, using our mind instead to over-ride the subtle warning mechanisms of that incredible vehicle.

.

.

.

.

.

.

With a misaligned Atlas, any resultant pressure on the spinal cord can bring about serious disturbances to the nervous system, impacting the flow of nerve impulses from the brain in turn reducing, distorting or even neutralising the natural workings of the body.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Our ignorance of this can be the cause of so many poor health conditions from structural body pains – TMJ, neck, hip and back being the most common – to a considerable array of less obvious connections.

.

The procedure for correction

.

  • Massage applied to the short musculature of the neck.
  • Single application, safely and permanently,
  • Atlas bone returns to its correct position. Old patterns clear and the entire system begins to function to its fullest potential.
  • Realigning the Atlas is like getting the foundations of a house laid correctly.  When the support structure is in place, the rest of the vertebrae are aligned and function as designed.
  • In most of us, the Atlas is out of alignment from birth and even before birth; babies born by C-section almost always have their Atlas out of place.
  • Once corrected, the Atlas won’t become out of alignment again.
  • When the muscles are loose, the Atlas can slide down gently into place by itself.  There is no cracking of the neck or any kind of chiropractic manipulation, or anything that might be traumatic; it is safe.
  • A self-healing process will start once the Atlas correction has been performed, as many pathways running through the neck will be realigned, such as the blood circulation, nerves, optical nerves, lymphatic system and the body’s life force.

This is a very powerful tool for holistic dentists or actually any dentist to get their client´s Atlas aligned properly before starting any major dental work.

If you live in the UK and would like to benefit from an atlas correction, go to www.marieatlas.co.uk where you can contact her directly and read her customer feedback.

If you live outside Britain and would like to know more or find an AtlasPROfilax® practitioner, got to http://www.atlasprofilax.ch/ and in the directory there’s a drop down box for locating practitioners worldwide.

Almost everything depends on a correctly located Atlas. It’s a tragedy that the human body falls sick at all, but it’s fatal ignorance if we learn the cause yet do nothing.

One Page per Chapter: Discover the myths and secrets of dentistry

.

.

With the overwhelming replies to my 28  “Six-Sentence” Series I decided I have to give you even more information about what will be in the book.

I have written one  page per each of the 28 chapters to give you a deeper understanding of what is going on in dentistry and how you can receive the knowledge to make sound decisions when it comes to any kind of dental treatment.

You will find one chapter released every two to three days.

As always I welcome your thoughts and comments

The Future of Dentistry

.

You can look at the question “Where is dentistry heading?”  from various perspectives and depending on your view you will come up with different scenarios.

From a Healh Care System view you could argue we have to create a system which is affordable for patients, government and dentists alike.

From a technology point of view you will see some amazing discoveries and developments in the years to come.

My opinion is that it´s not depending on how much or less a government or insurance subsidize your treatment.

The solution lies within yourself.

By taking responsibility for your health, eating a nourishing diet, having a healthy life style, some regular exercise and a positive outlook on life you will keep yourself and your teeth far more fit than by just relying on the repair-system offered.

Laser Assisted Dentistry

Laser Assisted Dentistry

.

Has the Holy Grail of dentistry finally been found?

No doubt laser-assisted dentistry has a lot to offer especially for patients who hate drilling, the high speed drill noise that comes with it and the numbing injection or are just scared to death going to the dentist.

The downside is, at least for the dentist, the high cost of dental laser equipment.

The benefits of laser treatment don´t just stop at needle-free drilling and noise avoidance – it goes much further and offers less pain after surgery, less bleeding during and after treatments, less bacterial infection, often no sutures are required and the healing after surgery is much faster.

Unfortunately the laser still can´t cut amalgam fillings, inlays, crowns or any other metal work.

Let´s hope more dentists will see the benefits of laser assisted dentistry and will offer this treatment for their clients.
