What is Periodontitis?
Periodontitis is an infectious disease caused from plaque or no plaque induced gingivitis with subsequent secondary parasitic infection by Entamoeba gingivatis and/or Trichomonas tenax.
Periodontal disease is a specific Oral Amebiasis and/or Oral Trichomoniasis infection secondary to a gingival inflammation with furnishes nutriments to aggressive acquired parasites from direct or indirect vector as most parasitic infections.
Everything clearly suggests local hygiene and systemic factors contributing to gingivitis are one of the major factors of the disease and secondary parasitic infection contribute exacerbation by disruption of inflammatory response toward connective tissue and bone loss.
Periodontitis is parasitic infection superposed on a gingivitis inflammation which conduct to destruction of the supporting tissues of the teeth, including connective tissue and bone.
Clinically, periodontitis is easy to prevent and treated when monitoring the biofilm with a hospital grade phase contrast microscope. Recurrence is low as long as gingivitis is discarded and entourage reassured.
Regeneration of hard tissue is predictable in vertical defects while health is maintained on a sufficient period.
Inflammation is easily controlled via biofilm monitoring and microscope.
Tissue regeneration occur when infection and inflammation is vanished.
In periodontal disease parasitic infection use inflammation response to feed on and release from disrupted PMN destructive uncontrolled enzymes who produce bone loss.
Disrupted PMN and particularly ghost cell release uncontrolled noxious enzymes leading to injury and loss of organ function. E.P.I.C. theory.
Tissue destruction result of parasitic sustained inflammatory cell disruption and chronic parasite proliferation and turnover.
Disrupted PMN loses their inherent capacity of resolving infection by absence of apoptosis and NETs normal activity and prevent wound healing
Steps in resolution of inflammation requires elimination of pathogen parasites, removal of active bacteria and correction of local defect including calculus as well as control of gingivitis whether plaque or not plaque induced.
Absence of gingivitis will prevent PMN inflammatory response and will render further parasitic infection impossible. Management of entourage and parasitic transmission (via human, pets, infected water, dishes) whether direct or indirect is clearly encouraged.
Periodontal Disease is Early Detectable, Easily Preventable and Completely Curable
How do I know if I’m infected?
The ultimate symptom of the disease is the loosening of teeth. But luckily there are earlier symptoms of periodontitis that should get your attention.
The first two signs of incipient periodontitis are bleeding gums and bad breath. The term “periodontitis” comes from the type of flora present in the mouth. This infection causes very bad breath.
Other symptoms include pain, swelling, and redness.
All these warning signs should prompt you to check your gums. Indeed, bacteria and parasites go under the gums and damage the underlying tissues. The earlier the disease is diagnosed, the more the aesthetic and functional consequences of the disease can be reduced and simpler treatment can be.
Please note that the disease can sometimes “hide”! Using peroxide and baking soda to brush the gums will cause them to bleed less. A diagnosis from your dentist will always be useful to remove all doubt about the status of your condition!
On general health
Several studies now establish a direct link between infections of the gums and general health, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, and premature babies with low birth-weights.
Treating gums infected by periodontitis, therefore, helps you avoid big health problems. A check for possible periodontitis is even one of the pre-diagnostics required before many surgeries.
This is also why it is good to ask some questions about general health issues because that may lead to the discovery of periodontitis: Do you suffer from chronic lung disease? Do you suffer from chronic fatigue? Do you suffer from heart failure or osteoporosis? If you are diabetic, have you been struggling to control your blood sugar?
A diagnosis of periodontitis can be an avenue to explore many health problems.
