Three dentists failed to diagnose my advanced periodontal gum disease. ……….but I healed it on my own.
Posted Dec 22 2011 12:30am
I am not trying to hate on the medical industry. But I can never reconcile how three separate dentists on three separate occasions totally missed and obvious condition that I was complaining about. Fourtunately for me, I properly disgnosed it my self and healed the condition on my own all naturally even after one dentist suggested surgery….Once again, I consider myself lucky that I love to research things pertaining to health, because I was able to totally reverse and heal this condition.
I have always had good teeth. When on a first date, there is a 50/50 change that the girl could say "You have nice teeth" or "You have a nice smile", or "Your teeth are so straight". Nonetheless I noticed this progressive problem with my small tooth on top, the one next to the two big ones. At first, I noticed it becoming crooked, and a year later, there was a large bump above the tooth in the middle of the gumline. Wasn't painful, but the bump got large and I could feel it in the inside of my upper lip. Later on, the bump would burst, and there would be bleeding or a kinda white puss coming out. I don't wanna gross anyone out, but I have to give the detail in case anyone else has the same condition. Hopefully, my next date won't read this until after she's really digging me, because I got my perfect healthy teeth back. Anyhoo, over the course of a few months, three dentists gave me exams and below is the diagnosis from each.
Dentist 1: At this point there was no noticeable issue except the tooth was getting crooked. The dentist suggested a $2000 procedure where he puts a new face on the tooth so it aligns with the other teeth.
Dentist 2: At this point the bump was there, there has started to be a little occasional blood coming from the gumline, the source obviously from under the gum. The dentist took xRays, told me there seemed not to be any root damage, probably just some irritation causing the inflammation. He suggested it will "go away".
Dentist 3: He said that I would need surgery, to cut away the dead tissue, although he never truly told me what the problem was. Besides, this would have not solved any future problems because the condition could have attacked any other tooth in the future.
As always, I sensed that I had to look into this myself, because these guys either had no clue, or they were withholding the issue from me, using me as their "cash cow", to make the most of by dental insurance. I knew for sure that Dentist 1, was operating like that, I can't say for sure about the other two. Anyhoo, I did one of my infamous Google searches and googled up something line "dental problems bump gums". I ran across the exact condition that I had, I know that for fact because the conditions were exactly the same. I have that gift to be able to distinguish if someone on the web is just saying "anything", or if he or she is something real that needs to be carefully looked at. The article is very short but, it saved my tooth, and probably will allow me to keep all my teeth the rest of my life, now that I know what is going on in the mouth. The article can be found here and is called How to Eliminate the Dentist from Your Life.
The bottom line to all this is that germs can separate the attachment of the gums from the tooth, and after that , bacteria can burrow under the gums and colonize. Once that process starts, the gums will proceed to detatch from the tooth, causing teeth to get crooked. As it gets worse, the "pocket", as it is called, becomes more and more infected. Traditional dentistry can cut out the dead tissue in the pocket, but they have not resolved the real issue, nor does this procedure allow the patient the proper information to prevent this from happening to another area of the mouth. In the end, the teeth start to fall out or must be pulled out, one of the reasons older people sometimes lose all their teeth.
The Hydrofloss is truly amazing for daily dental care!!!!
Now I am in no way affiliated with any company nor am I trying to sell anything to anyone. However I have to recommend myOral Irrigator, the Hydrofloss. to everyone. As I said before, it is something that you should use everyday, whether you have this condition or not, because it will keep any pockets from developing and keep the teeth and gum's healthy. Teeth are "squeaky clean". I can't say enough about about it. You don't necessarily need to by this particular brand of irrigator I suppose, others work just as well I'm sure. There are some bad reviews of this product on amazon, but mine has been going strong for 2.5 years. There are several types of "tips" that go into the mouth depending on your needs. I use several, but the "cannula" tip is the one that is kind of like a plastic needle that is inserted under the gumline to flush out the pocket. Not really painful, don't worry. If you don't have that condition, the other tips work similar to a toothbrush, but the pulsating water does the work. Takes a while to get the hang of using it, and it can get a little messy at first with water shooting over all over the place. My suggestion is to start kneeling over the bathtub until you get the hang of it. But do your homework and choose the best irrigator or you. I would also recommend the PerioCleanse Oral Irrigator fluid. Perio Cleanse contains a blend of natural Herbs and ingredients that are:
Phytoplenolin (Centipeda Cunninghamii Extract), Bio-Chelated Extracts of Echinacea Purpurea Tops (Echinacea Purpurea), Calendula Flower (Calendula Officinalis), Olive Leaf (Olea Europaea), Black Walnut Green Hulls (Juglans Nigra), Gotu Kola Herb (Centella Asiatica), Chamomile Flower (Chamomilla Recutita [Matricaria], Green Tea Leaf (Camellia Sinensis), Prickly Ash Bark (Zanthoxylum Americanum) and Grapefruit Seed (Citrus Grandis), Essential Oils of Peppermint (Mentha Piperita), Oregano (Origanum Vulgare), Clove (Eugenia Caryophyllus), Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia), Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) and Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globules), Bio-Saponin (Saponins), Folic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone), Aloe Vera Phytogel (Aloe Barbadensis) and Chlorophyll.
You just pump a few pumps into the water, to help nourish the gums naturally, without chemicals and such. I actually have a second travel irrigator that I take on trips to flush out my teeth when I am on the road.
Now I can understand from experience that the body, being a Gaia (self regulation system), is totally capable of healthing itself, given the right conditions and the right environment. Now with new my aresenal of equipment and information, I should be able to keep all my teeth my entire life, with is great because, as you can see from this website, I love to eat. It's and awesome thing to experience the body heal itself.
And that's to tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth. ~dw~
