Microbes and gum disease

You’re bleeding gums and have bad breath. Do you have periodontitis? Most likely, since more than half of the adult population suffers from periodontal disease …

The exact content of this microbial infection is increasingly documented. And … the cleanings and surfacing are not enough to solve the problem. Our recent retrospective study by a group of five firms French- more than 632 patients – recently published and presented at the meeting of Parasitology “Amebiasis XVII 2013” in Mexico in March 2013, confirms the undeniable presence of oral pathogenic parasites in diseases of the gum. Following a pest control dedicated it easy to find periodontal health and almost wound pockets.

the reason, it is parasites Entamoeba gingivalis and Trichomonas tenax, two celled protozoa that wallow below the gum line and take advantage of the inflammation induced gingivitis in place to breeding and feeding, not bacteria, but
the white and red blood cells that engulf profusely. This vampiric activity, a proteolytic enzyme release normally dedicated to other purposes, a periodontal ligament and alveolar bone bare and defenseless.
Now that we understand that there is an association between these diseases gum and cardiovascular disease, certain lung infections, stroke, diabetes, premature births of babies of small weight … it is crucial to inform first the people and cure properly this too common disease.

The oral flora in gingivitis situation?

When gingivitis sets in, either through poor hygiene or because of local factors predisposing to the teeth, rather mobile spirochetes bacteria of the type and mobile vibrio, bacteria say no favorable benefit from the oral environment and grow in large numbers. The body’s response is almost immediate and the immune system quickly sends the appropriate defense cells as mostly polymorphonuclear neutrophils.

This surface gum disease is then called reversible provided, of course, to reduce the number of bacteria pathogens and find favorable dental conditions with the presence of normal bacteria and cocoides called non motile rods commensals. However, if infection persists gingival, an even more aggressive flora consists of protozoa can be superimposed as a second infection.
