It is the body’s reaction to the bacteria present in our mouths. It is most often manifested by bleeding gums after irritation, for example with a toothbrush or interdental brush.
Every day, after brushing, a salivary pellicle forms on the teeth, which protects them from various external influences. Various types of bacteria get trapped in it during the day, thus forming a biofilm/plaque. If we do not remove the biofilm/plaque from the surface of our teeth by means of cleaning at least once a day, this biofilm thickens and after 48 hours a mature biofilm is formed. The latter already contains pathogenic bacteria. It is these that cause oral diseases such as caries or gingivitis and subsequently periodontitis/parodontitis.
Our body reacts to all pathogenic bacteria via the immune system. It tries to overcome diseases caused by bacteria or viruses that have invaded the system. It works the same way in our mouths. If pathogenic bacteria begin to reside in the biofilm on the teeth, our organism begins to fight back. This is when our gums bleed because they are more engorged due to our body’s immune response. Blood supplies the inflamed tissues with defensive substances.
These fight off the bacteria in the biofilm in the mouth and kill them. However, in this “battle” between bacteria and our body, various toxic substances are produced that attack our tissues around the tooth. The tissues around the tooth begin to dissolve, and the bone holding the tooth starts to recede, which results in periodontitis/parodontitis. If you suffer from chronic/long-lasting inflammation of your gums, it leads to the loss of individual teeth. Because, when the tissues and the bone that holds the teeth recede, the teeth will have nothing to hold them and they will start to wobble and eventually fall out.
That is why gingivitis requires special attention! First of all, it is important to visit a dentist or dental hygienist to determine the cause of gingivitis and set up a treatment course to keep your teeth protected and preserved in the mouth. In the beginning, it is a relatively simple treatment that can preserve your beautiful smile for a lifetime!
No mouthwash, gel or toothpaste can help with gingivitis or parodontitis. The intervention of a specialist is needed! This chemical treatment can suppress the symptoms of the disease, but it is no substitute for proper treatment. While this method of treatment may be effective, a consultation with a specialist is clearly needed to determine the specific and necessary course of treatment. What you should pay the most attention to is the fact that parodontitis doesn’t hurt! That’s why people don’t even know that they have it. If you start to feel pain, then that is already the last stage of parodontitis. At this stage, in many cases, even the intervention of doctors will not help.
