Pyorrhea (Pus in Gums)


Pyorrhea is a very common periodontal disease that affects gums surrounding the roots of the teeth. It leads to inflammation, irritation and pus in gums further resulting in loosening of teeth. Pyorrhea is the primary cause for tooth loss in adults.
Causes of Pyorrhea:

Pyorrhea is caused by bacterial infection.

Home cure for pyorrhea

Food particles get stuck in crevices between teeth.  When teeth are not brushed properly and regularly, bacteria build up on teeth plaque. Bacteria convert these food particles especially the sugar into acids. These acidic elements putrefy the gums and teeth and induce Pyorrhea like conditions.

Other common causes of Pyorrhea include external injury of teeth and gums, improper use of toothpick and incorrect brushing.

Symptoms of Pyorrhea:

Pus oozing from margins of teeth
Swollen and inflamed gums
Loosened teeth roots.
Sepsis of digestive tract or liver disorders, if pus persists for a longer time.

Ayurvedic Cure for Pyorrhoea (Pus in Gums)
Ayurveda Pyorrhoea cureIn ayurveda, pyorrehoea is called as Dantvesha or Putidanta. Pyorrehoea is charecterized by excessive discharges of pus from the roots of gums and teeth. If not cured in the initial stages, this can lead to various diseases. This happens because the patient swallows the pus along with the food and the consumed pus then gets absorbed into the gastro-intestinal system.

The common symptoms of pyorrhoea are as follows

Teeth become loose and start falling one after another
Gum paining and bleeding
Difficulty in chewing solid food ingredients
Foul smell in mouth

The causes of pyorrhea are

Unhygienic oral habits.

For constipation, triphala powder or decoction of it is very useful and must be taken regularly.
The powders of the barks Bakula and Babula are very good and are used as tooth powders.
Dasana Samskara Churna is the most commonly prescribed medicine for pyorrhoea. This is also used as a tooth powder.
Also the gums should be rubbed with Bhadramustadi Gutika.

The twig of Neem tree of Banyan tree should be used for brushing.
Hot water mixed with borax should be used for gargling mouth.

Fruits which are high in Vitamin C should be taken more.
Vegetables like bitter gourd, potato and drumstick are useful.
The things which stick to the roots of teeth should be avoided as far as possible.


Gingivitus & Periodontitis

Wikipedia: Gingivitis is a category of periodontal disease where there is no loss of bone but there is presence of inflammation and bleeding.

Wikipedia:  Periodontitis /ˌpɛrioʊdɒnˈtaɪtɪs/ or pyorrhea /ˌpaɪəˈriə/ is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, i.e., the tissues that surround and support the teeth. Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. Periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the tooth’s surfaces, along with an over-aggressive immune response against these microorganisms. A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by inspecting the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a probe (i.e., a clinical examination) and by evaluating the patient’s X-ray films (i.e. a radiographic examination), to determine the amount of bone loss around the teeth.[1] Specialists in the treatment of periodontitis are periodontists; their field is known as “periodontology” or “periodontics”.

Apparently, Gingivitus always precedes Periodontitis


 Gingivitus – how to never get it and how to get rid of it


gingivitus beginning


gingivitus before and after treatment

I helped my body rid my tooth of Gingivitus with a quality wooden tooth stick and hydrogen peroxide.

Get a dropper bottle, fill it with hydrogen peroxide.  Use your quality wooden toothpick to gently lift the skin at the bottom of affected tooth and drop 1 drop of hydrogen peroxide into the the affected area.

Go for a swim in the sea.

And within half an hour, your tooth is on the mend. Keep applying even when you think it is healed.

When you think it is healed, do the following twice a day – once on rising and before retiring for the evening.

Gum disease affects most people at some time during their life. It is usually caused by a build-up of plaque on teeth. One of the common signs of gum disease is bleeding gums. Different stages of gum disease are gingivitis and periodontitis. Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth, gums become irritated and inflamed. The irritated gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. Destructive bacteria move into the pockets where they continue to promote irritation. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed. Periodontal disease progresses as the sulcus (pocket or space) between the tooth and gums gets filled with bacteria, plaque, and tartar, causing irritation to the surrounding tissues.  When these irritants remain in the pocket space, they can cause damage to the gums and eventually, the bone that supports the teeth. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

The different stages of gum disease:


Gingivitis is early gum disease and occurs when dental plaque builds up on teeth, particularly where the gum joins the tooth. The signs of gingivitis are bleeding, redness and swelling of the gum. Gingivitis usually precedes periodontitis.
In the early stage of gingivitis, bacteria in plaque build up, causing the gums to become inflamed and to easily bleed during tooth brushing. Although the gums may be irritated, the teeth are still firmly planted in their sockets. No irreversible bone or other tissue damage has occurred at this stage. When gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis. In a person with periodontitis, the inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected.


Periodontitis is an advanced gum disease that may occur if gingivitis is not treated. The gum margin – the part of the gum that seals to the tooth, – is weakened and spaces form between the tooth and the gum. These spaces are called ‘periodontal pockets.’ Bacteria and their products become trapped in these pockets causing further inflammation (redness and swelling). Signs of periodontitis include bleeding, swelling and receding gums together with bad breath, a bad taste in the mouth and loose teeth.
Toxins or poisons — produced by the bacteria in plaque as well as the body’s “good” enzymes involved in fighting infections — start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. As the disease progresses, the pockets deepen and more gum tissue and bone are destroyed. When this happens, teeth are no longer anchored in place, they become loose, and tooth loss occurs.

Gingivitis and Periodontics Treatment:
Treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease. If the disease is caught in the early stages of gingivitis, and no damage has been done, one to two regular cleanings will be performed. You will also be given instructions on improving your daily oral hygiene habits and having regular dental cleanings.
If the disease has progressed to more advanced stages, a special periodontal cleaning called scaling and root planing will be performed.  It is usually done one quadrant of the mouth at a time while the area is numb.  In this procedure, tartar, plaque, and toxins are removed from above and below the gum line (scaling) and rough spots on root surfaces are made smooth (planing).  This procedure helps gum tissue to heal and pockets to shrink. If the pockets do not heal after scaling and root planning, periodontal surgery may be needed to reduce pocket depths, making the teeth easier to clean.


the link below is a business, the title of the page hooked me in, and at first glance, curing mentions Coconut Oil and Oregano oil (oregano vulgare), which is sound good sense – read the article, and be a jolly good reader and give some feedback on the article in the comment below.

Bleeding gums can be a result of gum disease as previously mentioned, but it can also be a symptom accompanying canker sores or mouth ulcers which have their own causes aside from gum disease. If bleeding occurs due to a sore in the mouth you will likely notice that the gums are sore, and these can come as single sores or in multiples. Signs that may indicate gum disease or gingivitis may include the following:

Sore gums
Swollen gums
Changes in the way teeth fit together
Formation of deep pockets between the teeth and gums
Gums that bleed during and after brushing teeth
Loose, or shifting teeth
Receding gums

There is much more to consider than just the pain or discomfort associated with the bleeding itself. It can often lead to gum disease. If there is a passageway for blood to exit your tissue, it makes sense that there would be a way for other things to enter the bloodstream. If this is the case, harmful bacteria that are formed in the mouth can gain access to your bloodstream and potentially cause a whole host of health problems. Some of the dangers that can eventually take place are:

Digestive system disorders
Respiratory problems
Higher risk for heart attack or stroke
Pancreatic cancer

The Major Cause of Bleeding Gums – Harmful Bacteria

Bacteria in the mouth can easily grow out of control, especially when proper oral hygiene is not being practiced, or the wrong oral care products are being used. When this happens, the bacteria form plaque, and eventually tartar. This will cause inflammation of the gums, along with swelling and bleeding. Bleeding can also occur as a result of improper flossing. Be careful to allow the floss to slide along the natural curves of the teeth, and do not force it.

Even when brushing and flossing regularly, you may be using products that are causing more harm than good. Commercial toothpastes and mouthwash are filled with potentially harmful ingredients.
Treating Bleeding Gums

We’ve previously discussed how bleeding gums can be related to gum disease, or other natural functions of the body. Here are a few ways to help treat, or control it if you’re suffering:

Establish a good oral hygiene program
Replace your commercial toothpaste and mouthwash with 100% pure oral products.
Eat a well balanced diet
Drink plenty of water
Do not use tobacco products
Be cautious about extremely hot or cold foods and beverages
