The gums (oral tissue) in your mouth are probably more important than your teeth. Without healthy gums, the underlying bone which holds the teeth in place can become diseased.
This can result in a condition called Periodontal Disease which ultimately leads to wobbly teeth or teeth falling out.
Every time you eat
- Every time you eat food, small fragments of your meal collect on the junction between your teeth and your gums.
- Unless it is removed fully, it harbours bacteria and when it mixes with the calcium in your saliva it is encased in a hardened shell of calcium (like limestone rock). This is known as tartar (or calculus) and is a source of tremendous bacterial toxicity to your body.
- When tartar builds, it cannot be removed by your toothbrush, and bacteria is allowed free access to your gums and your blood vessels (your gums are pink because they contain an enormous amount of blood vessels)
This bacteria can have a massive impact on:
- Your heart
- Your lungs
- Your brain
- Your pancreas
- Your kidneys
- They can also increase your risk of osteoporosis, arthritis, and breast cancer.
