Herbal pyorrhea remedy
Pyorrhea is described as an infection of the gum. I can still recall hearing that word as a child because parents would tell their children that they had pyorrhea.
In my younger days, I could only imagine that it had something to do with the mouth. Becoming an adult, I came to realize what pyorrhea was all about. I believe this disease was prevalent in my childhood days because there was a lack of proper oral hygiene. Today there is fluoride toothpaste and effective mouthwash to prevent such a disease.
Pyorrhea is primarily caused by poor dental and oral hygiene. Another contributory fact is a built up of toxins in the body which is caused by bad diet and poor elimination of waste.
In addition to some natural remedies, herbal pyorrhea remedy may be a very good and wise choice to treat and prevent pyorrhea.
The symptoms of pyorrhea are usually bleeding as well as swelling of the gum. In some cases where it is extreme, the teeth can become loose and at the same time the gum will recede.
All preventative measures including the use of medicinal herbs should be used to avoid the disease and the loss of teeth.
