Are you suffering from gingivitis?
If so, you are not alone.
There is a high incidence of gingivitis and gum disease amongst human beings. How high that rate is may be a bit debatable but reliable sources put the amount as high as 75 to 80% of the population.
That is 7 or 8 out of 10 adults suffers from some form of gum disease! Think about the implications of those numbers.
Gingivitis is the very beginning stage of gum disease. So if you have been told you have it, then you need to take action. Gingivitis is still reversible, but actual gum disease is not.
Be careful, because it is relatively easy to go from gingivitis to gum tissue shrinking away from the tooth. Once that starts to happen you have minor gum disease.
You can imagine what moderate and advanced gum disease are like. You’ve probably even seen the pictures.
Here at two things that I have personally found to be useful in fighting gum disease.
1. The Hydro Floss – Studies have shown the effectiveness of this little device at removing plaque and tartar – two major components that allow gum disease to advance. You can read details about the Hydro Floss yourself.
2. A special tooth paste and mouthwash kit. This kit doesn’t just contain any old mouth wash and toothpaste. These special formulations contain an oxygenated compound as well as a powerful combination of other ingredients, including Aloe and pyrophosphates. This is unique and you don’t see many like them out there.
Anyway, try these out. But remember, it is important to remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums daily. Therefore, do not neglect your regular brushing and flossing. – It’s just that they aren’t always enough by themselves. That’s one of the reasons why I suggest the above tools.
