How to Prevent Periodontal Disease (PD) be happy, healthy, and save money
TO KNOW AND REMEMBER:
you say/think: "HEY, LADY! WE LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD."
I say: " OK, OK, I get it! "
When you have exchanged saliva with someone who is not known to you...
HERE IS A SIMPLE, INEXPENSIVE WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF:
This method is old. It was resurrected and defined in the 1970's by a NIH scientist. It is now called the Keye's (after the 1970s scientist who resurrected it) method/ technique .
(hint: you can also use this method if you have been diagnosed with PD...it often reduces the amount of needed surgery saving you money)
TO SEE WHAT I MEAN BY " NECKS OF THE TEETH" AND How to USE A RUBBER TIP STIMULATOR: see video: 'Rubber Tip Stimulator' by Dr Berdy* in Jacksonville FL on YOUTUBE.COM. NOTE: YOU WILL HAVE Baking Soda /Hydrogen Peroxide mixture in your mouth and you will only go around each tooth ONCE. You DO NOT have to push the mixture into the gum! THINK GENTLE
Not as effective as baking soda and hydrogen peroxide but very helpful:
A mouth rinse called TOOTH AND GUM TONIC, made by the Dental Herb Company
and now available online. I routinely used this mouthwash in my dental practice. It does not stain the teeth and the patients actually complied...a BIG HELP!
WARNING: IF YOUR GUMS BLEED SEE A DENTIST! YOU HAVE AN INFECTION AND YOU NEED HELP
(note: this is esp. true for pregnant women! pregnancy does not equal bleeding gums...it is NOT hormonal)
*found on Youtube, do not know this dentist. I liked his thorough video instructions.
