Treating gum disease with homemade remedies
Necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (NUG), commonly called trench mouth or Vincent's disease, is a bacterial infection. It is usually associated with poor oral hygiene, smoking, and or psychological stress, but may be seen in patients with good oral hygiene. b. Effect. Necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis is characterized by fetid breath and ulcerations covered by a whitish, yellowish, or gray pseudomembrane. They may be found in only a few areas or throughout the mouth. The most common site of these ulcers is the interproximal gingiva. The thin gray membrane covering the ulcer may be wiped off easily, exposing a highly inflamed area that bleeds very easily. There is a rapid destruction of the marginal and interproximal soft tissue. These tissues become so painful that it becomes difficult to brush the teeth and to masticate food. The onset of this infection is sudden, often with systemic symptoms of illness. In severe cases, there may be fever, an increased pulse rate, pallor of the skin,...
Gingivitis (figures 1-4 and 1-5) is an inflammation of the gingival tissues. It is characterized by the typical signs and symptoms of inflammation-swelling (edema), redness, pain, increased heat, and, sometimes, disturbance of function. Most patients that appear to have clinically healthy gingiva also have minute areas of inflammatory activity. The inflammation is caused by the toxic substances produced by bacteria in the mucinous plaques adjacent to the gingival tissue. Direct irritation from food impaction, toothbrush bristles, or toothpicks may also cause gingival inflammation. With inflammation, the gingival tissue appears to proliferate. The inflammatory gingival response causes a swelling of the tissue caused by increased vascular activity. This increases the depth of the gingival sulcus (a furrow between the surface of the tooth and the gingiva) around the involved teeth, increasing the potential for continued and further gingival involvement. The increased depth of the sulcus...
Complications from diabetes are serious and disabling. Diabetes is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease, lower-extremity amputations, and blindness in adults. Other complications include heart disease, stroke, hypertension, nervous system disease, dental disease, and complications of pregnancy.
Emergency treatments for incision and drainage of periodontal abscesses, acute gingivitis, stomatitis and other causes of pain will be a part of the activities of a routine day. For treating these emergencies, each periodontist chooses the instruments and methods, all aimed at relieving the emergency situation and then instituting definitive treatment.
Periodontic Endodontic And Prosthodontic Instruments Section I Periodontic Instruments 41 Introduction
Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry providing prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and abnormalities involving the tissue structures that surround and support the teeth. These structures are the periodontal ligament, gingiva, cementum, and alveolar bone. The signs and symptoms of periodontal disease are loose teeth, sensitivity to pressure, enlarged gingival tissues, bleeding gingival tissues when using a toothbrush, and halitosis (bad breath). Periodontal disease often begins as gingival inflammation in children and young adults. Without early recognition of the disease and early adequate treatment, the disease progresses to an advanced disease status with little inconvenience or pain to the patient. In the advanced status, the teeth become sore to pressure, are demonstrably loose, and develop painful conditions such as acute periodontitis and periodontal abscess. After the age of 35, periodontal disease is the major cause for the loss of natural...
Diagnosis is the process of identifying a disease or disease process from a study of its appearance and effects. Since the patient is not always aware of the presence of disease, recognition must often precede diagnosis. For this reason, both periodic physical and dental examinations are required for Army personnel. Dental examinations result routinely in the diagnosis of dental caries and periodontal disease, but the dental officer does not limit his examination to dental and periodontal tissues. Because of his training, the dental officer has the responsibility of diagnosing localized diseases of the lips, the tongue, the oral mucosa, and the salivary glands and diagnosing changes in such tissues that are indications or extensions of diseases at other locations in the body. Many systemic diseases present early oral manifestations that are discovered during routine dental examination. Thorough examination of oral tissues occasionally results in the discovery of malignant, potentially...
Adverse Reaction to Drug Absorption. Ingestion of certain drugs by individuals having an idiosyncrasy or intolerance to them may result in the allergic manifestations referred to as stomatitis medicamentosa. The signs in the mouth vary from a sensitive erythema (redness) to an ulcerative stomatitis or gingivitis. If withdrawal of the suspected drug is followed by disappearance of the lesions, it is evidence of its causal relationships. Therefore, treatment consists of identification and elimination of the drug causing the lesions.
The best health practice is to prevent cavities and gum disease from even starting. With these activities, children can do something to guard their health. A. When gum disease is beginning, a small red 'pocket' forms where the tooth meets the gum. Germs and food collect in the gum and make acid. This makes the gums sore. B. As a result, the gum pulls away and the pocket becomes deeper. C. The bone moves away from the infection and no longer holds the tooth. Try to think of other ways to teach how gum disease pushes the bone away from the tooth. In Jamaica, dental workers ask, What do you do if someone attacks you with a machete (long knife) I run away most people answer. Exactly, say the dental workers, and when you have a lot of germs attacking the root of your tooth, the bone 'runs away' and leaves the tooth with nothing to hold it. A. When gum disease is beginning, a small red 'pocket' forms where the tooth meets the gum. Germs and food collect in the gum and make acid. This makes...
Press against the gums with cotton gauze. Wait a moment, and then look closely to see if they start bleeding. Then use your probe gently to feel under the gum for tartar. Carefully scrape some away. Wait and look again to see if the gums bleed. When gums bleed, it is a sign of gum disease.
A 75-year-old woman is seen in the emergency room with a fractured arm. Physical examination revealed multiple bruises and perifollicular hemorrhages, periodontitis, and painful gums. Her diet consists predominately of weak coffee, bouillon, rolls, and plain pasta. Lab results indicated mild microcytic anemia. Which of the following enzymes should be less active than normal in this patient
Diabetes mellitus is a disease in which the body is unable to use carbohydrates (primarily sugar) caused by a deficiency in the insulin secretion of the pancreas. This disease is controlled by strict dietary restriction supplemented, as needed, by insulin or other drugs. This metabolic disorder lowers tissue resistance to infection and retards healing. Diabetics also appear to be more susceptible to periodontal disease. This disease may be accompanied by a tendency of gingival tissues to bleed easily.
Toothache sf maize green leaf gum disease What color are his gums Are they pointed Loose, red, swollen gums are signs of gum disease. Both cavities and gum disease can be treated. The first problem is a tooth abscess. The second is advanced gum disease. 4) Why does the boy have cavities and gum disease There are 2 reasons. The germs in his mouth eat sugar from his food and make acid. Acid causes both cavities and gum disease.
Diabetes is a systemic disease in which the body is unable to utilize sugars in the diet because of the lack of insulin in the system. Diabetes may be controlled by periodic injections of insulin, oral medication, or diet, depending on its severity. Periodontal disease is often associated with uncontrolled diabetes. Special consideration must be given in performing surgery or any dental treatment on diabetics because of their tendency to bleed easily and their high susceptibility to infections. The dental officer normally will not perform extractions on uncontrolled diabetics unless the patient's physician assumes responsibility and supportive measures have been employed.
A periodontal abscess is most frequently a sequel of untreated periodontal disease. It is a collection of pus along the sides of the tooth that may or may not involve the apical area. It can be caused by a foreign body such as calculus, a toothpick, or popcorn hull becoming lodged in the periodontal ligament or beneath the free margin of the gingival tissue. The irritant causes an inflammatory response and, because of minimal drainage through the periodontal sulcus, pus forms. A periodontal abscess may drain either through periodontal pockets or through the gingiva into the mouth. The most common signs and symptoms are swelling, dull pain in adjacent periodontal tissues, soreness of the gingiva, and shiny mucous membrane over the area. Establishment of drainage tends to reduce the acute symptoms.
