Periodontitis is an oral affection that can either be of local or genetic origin. It can have many causes, including poorly treated or completely untreated gingivitis since the inflammation then spreads to the tissues surrounding and supporting the tooth. In the absence of adequate care, periodontitis can lead to early loss of teeth from the age of 40. Moreover, this oral disease may be also responsible for coronary heart disease and may eventually lead to serious diseases such as myocardial infarction.
In the early stages, periodontitis is a disease that does not cause any pain. The periodontal inflammation then starts to develop throughout the root, resulting in the gradual loosening of the teeth. Slightly inflamed and reddish, the gums regularly bleed after each brushing. Periodontitis evolves with the proliferation of undesirable bacteria, like fusobacteria and spirochaetes, both of which cause bleeding as they develop within the oral cavity. At this stage, they can spread through the bloodstream and infect the blood vessels. Furthermore, be aware that periodontitis can sometimes be a sign of some internal diseases such as liver functional deficiency.
In order to fight against periodontal inflammation, it is advisable to take 5 granules of Mercurius solubilis 15 CH or 5 granules of Mercurius corrosivus 15 CH three times a day for two weeks, taking care to start the treatment from the onset of the first symptoms. Thanks to these two remedies, the painful outbreaks can be relieved, the inflammation may be limited and recurrent infections can be avoided. If periodontitis is accompanied by with aphthous lesions, it is preferable to opt for a Hydrastis mother tincture, a remedy that can also be used in disease-modifying therapy.
It is advisable to consult a doctor from the onset of the first symptoms of periodontitis, that is to say as soon as there is a pesistent bleeding of the gums and loosening of the teeth. Indeed, it is important to know that the treatment of periodontitis is much more difficult and costly when the condition is at an advanced stage.
