What are gingivitis and periodontitis? Gingivitis and periodontitis are inflammation of the gums and teeth respectively.
I’ve had gingivitis for a while, but it never went farther than that(because of regular trips to the dentist)
About a week ago I decided to begin to treat it
I brushed, flossed, and used mouthwash twice a day and I already notice a difference
My gums are less swollen and red(now more of a dark pink)
My teeth are whiter and my breath smells better my gums also now bleed a lot less
Please remember to take care of you teeth, don’t take them for granted
Update: it’s almost been two weeks, and my gums and teeth only keep getting better. My gums are even less red and they don’t even bleed anymore
As a non dental student but someone who’s just curious about wtf is going on in my mouth, thank you! I have gingivitis and just went for the cleaning and now I understand it 🙂
For all the people who have nighmares about their teeth rotting and falling out. Like those I have 😱
Osmosis, you guys are great. I always hope the subject I’m learning about has an Osmosis video to watch. Thank you!
Question out of curiosity : so let’s say if a person skips some days of brushing teeth and ends up developing gingivitis and yellow teeth for a while , is the gingivitis reversible along with the color of the teeth ?
I always brush my teeth twice a day and I have braces.
I was told I have the gingi thing.
My ortho said to brush my gums better and to use listerene and I would be fine.
Many things forgotten in this video : Plaque induced gingivitis, hormonaly dependant, blood disease corelated, dermatose related, Drug induced, viral, gingivostomatitis ulcerosa, genetic, Plaque unrelated such as streps and gonococcus, alergic, traumatic or other gingivitis. Important toxins that the bacteria produce such as leukotoxin and many others.
I went to the dentist a few weeks ago & was diagnosed with periodontitis. didn’t seem to matter how often I brushed my teeth (at least 3x a day) or flossed (at least 1x a day). Now I have to go every 3-4 months for treatment that’s costing me $$$ I can’t really afford w/out tightening my belt big time. Someone told me about oil pulling (swishing coconut oil around your mouth for about 15-20 minutes every day) to repair some of the damage. Tried it tonight–not a fantastic experience–but I’m desperate. I can’t reverse the damage at this point but don’t want to make it worse. . . .
Thank you so much please we need more about dentistry 🙄😍
