Pyorrhea, or periodontal disease, to give it a proper medical term, is disease of the gums. It is one of the most widely prevalent diseases. It affects the membrane surrounding the roots of the teeth and lead to loosening of the teeth, us formation, and shrinkage of the gum. This disease is the primary cause for tooth loss among adults


The gums become tender, and on pressing, pus oozes out along the margin of the teeth. Us from the cavities continually find its way into the stomach. When the disease is far advanced, the gums become swollen, and the stomach being sosed with increasing quantities of pus, does not function properly. A sepsis may appear in various forms, digestion gets disturbed, liver trouble sets in, and the whole system is adversely affected

Root cause:

Pyorrhoea is triggered by bacterial activity .A thin layer of harmful bacteria is continuously building up on our teeth. If it is not removed by tooth cleansing, especially after meals, it forms an organized mass on the tooth surface in a short time. This is referred to as bacterial plaque. When accumulated, bacteria in plaque produce many toxins, which irritate the gums, causing them to become inflamed, tender and prone to bleeding easily. The bacterial activity is however, facilitated by the lowered vitality of the system. Other factors contributing to the development of pyorrhea include chemical irritants in the mouth, incorrect brushing, stagnation of food particles, and improper use of tooth picks.
