Pregnancy gingivitis affects many pregnant women and may be linked to premature babies. Cure gingivitis during pregnancy and reduce the risk to you and your baby. Stop bleeding gums during pregnancy and stay healthy.

Women who are pregnant should have a periodontal exam as part of prenatal care. Statistics have found that only half of expecting mothers receive proper dental care.

Pregnancy gingivitis” is the swelling/inflammation of the gums that many pregnant women suffer, especially early on in their pregnancy.  It is caused by a bacterial film that grows on the teeth, resulting in plaque buildup.  This plaque irritates the gum tissue, making them tender, bright red, swollen, sensitive, and easy to make bleed.

The hormonal changes during pregnancy change the body’s natural response to dental plaque, and thus exaggerate the way the gum tissues react to the bacteria in plaque, thus resulting in a higher chance of pregnant women getting gingivitis.  Generally, if extra care is taken of the teeth and possible plaque buildup, it can be prevented.  It is even more important to have a good oral hygienic routine during this time.

It is very important for expecting mothers to take care quickly if they have gum disease because they have a six times greater risk of having preterm and low-birth weight babies!  If expecting mothers had untreated tooth decay and/or consumed a lot of sugar, their children had four times the risk of developing tooth decay as opposed to children of other mothers.

As far as hormones are concerned, expecting mothers (and also women who take oral contraceptives) generally experience elevated levels of estrogen and progesterone.  This is why pregnant women have a 65 to 70% chance of developing gingivitis during the pregnancy.  The risk of getting gingivitis increases beginning with the second month of pregnancy and decreases with the ninth month.

If you already have gingivitis going in to a pregnancy, it will likely get worse during pregnancy if you do not get treatment.  Keep in mind that it is the bacteria in plaque that causes gingivitis by infecting the gum tissue and not the hormonal changes.

The problem with gum disease (periodontal disease) is that the infected gums are toxic reservoirs of disease-causing bacteria.  The toxins released can attack the ligaments, gums, and bones surrounding your teeth to create infected pockets similar to large infected wounds in the oral cavity.  These pockets, unfortunately, can provide access to your bloodstream and allow bacteria to travel throughout your body.

Since the bacteria that cause gingivitis can enter the bloodstream, the bacteria can travel all the way down to the uterus.  This triggers the body to produce prostaglandins, which is a natural fatty acid that normally controls inflammation and smooth muscle contraction.  When a woman is pregnant, her level of prostaglandins increases and peaks when she goes into labor.  It is possible that if extra prostaglandins are produced when the body is reacting to infected gums, a pregnant women’s body may think it is a signal to go into labor sooner than expected, thus causing a baby to be born too early or too small.

Pregnancy Tumors

Pregnancy tumors (pyogenic granuloma) are part of the exaggerated response to the plaque/bacteria that causes gum disease.  They are inflammatory and benign growths that develop on the gums, and although they are not cancerous, they should be treated.  They are rare and usually painless.

Beware of any medications that you take during pregnancy when you are treating an infection.

How to Prevent Pregnancy Gingivitis:

 

–          Brush teeth 2-3X a day and after meals whenever possible

–          Floss and use mouthwash every day

–          If you are suffering from morning sickness, rinse your mouth with water frequently and/or brush your teeth as often as possible to neutralize the acid caused by vomiting

–          If tooth brushing causes morning sickness, rinse your mouth with water, brush without the toothpaste and use an anti-plaque fluoride mouthwash afterwards

–          Eat healthy foods with plenty of vitamin B12 and C

–           See a dentist for advice on preventing/controlling plaque and gingivitis.  Schedule routine checkups and dental cleanings.

Learn How to Cure Halitosis and Bad Breath

Information about bad breath (halitosis) causes such as poor oral hygiene, sinus infections, tonsillitis, certain foods, smoking, and other medical disorders. Can be found at: GreatBreathNow.com
Having bad breath or halitosis is an embarrassing situation that can lead to problems in relationships and work.
Learning how to cure halitosis  involves knowing what precise strategies and techniques are needed to treat chronic halitosis; it is important to identify the real causes behind the problem, and then use the precise tools and treatments that target the underlying causes rather than just the symptoms.

How Do You Cure Bad Breath? Step by Step GuideHow Do You Cure Bad Breath?

Most of us would rather find a miracle product which could eliminate our stinky breath quickly, ideally in a matter of seconds, just by rinsing our mouths with it or doing a bit of gargling. Unfortunately, this product does not exist, despite what many companies claim. Not even the best oxygenating mouthwashes are up to the job of treating chronic Bad Breath.

Thus, the only option left for the chronic halitosis sufferer is to address the underlying causes of the problem. Given that there are so many different factors, conditions and diseases which can cause bad breath, not to mention the fact that often multiple causes are involved, it is very difficult to get to the bottom of the problem unless a rigorous and methodical approach is used.

Understanding how to eliminate bad breath by identifying the underlying causes of the bad breath problem and then using targeted remedies and treatments is the only way that will eventually lead to a permanent bad breath cure.

Some of the causes of bad breath include:

  • Tobacco chewing
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Gum (periodontal) disease
  • Anemia

Finally, dry mouth causes bad breath. When you have dry mouth, especially in the morning, dead cells accumulate in the mouth and decompose causing foul odor.

Follow the 14-Step How to Cure Halitosis™ method. Learn how to cure bad breath step by step and find out the exact remedies or treatments you need to use in order to target your particular type of bad breath:

Worst Remedies For Bad Breath

Listed below are things you should really try to avoid when dealing with Bad Breath.

1. Intestinal cleansing methods: Bad breath is not the stomach or intestine. It originates in the mouth. Cleaning the pipes can be good for general health, but do not expect to eliminate bad breath by doing this.

2. Chewing snuff:  Smokeless snuff and chewing tobacco is a health hazard and causes dissolving of the gum’s and increases the chances of losing the material to hold teeth firmly in the mouth, and worst of all causes oral cancer. Avoid chewing tobacco all costs.

3. Breath mints and sprays: A wonderful aroma in the  mouth are not an indication of a healthy mouth.  Using  mints and sprays to temporarily hide your bad breath, will give a real treat for the bad bacteria that will greatly aggravate the problem.

4. Tongue piercing: As with any wound on your body, tongue piercing creates an entry-point for bacteria, and that has the potential to worsen your problem considerably! If you think “ordinary” bad breath is bad, imagine what it will be like if you have a smelly infection in your tongue as well!

5. Mouthwash: Use this at your own risk. Many of the mouthwashes contain very high levels of alcohol which can actually WORSEN bad breath!

6. Brushing teeth with soap or cleansers: Incredible as it may seem, people have tried to brush their teeth with a detergent, bleach and other cleaning products! Thinking that if these things do a good job of cleaning their homes, maybe they will do a good job of cleaning their teeth. But many of these products are toxic and sometimes fatal. They should never (ever) be put in the mouth!

7. Alcoholic Beverages such as Vodka, martinis, or whiskey: Alcohol is a drying agent, and will further accelerate the problem by making your mouth very dry (which results in accelerated growth of bad bacteria).

8. Chewing gum: Chewing gum does promote salivary juice flow, but only covers up bad breath. Try drinking water throughout the day as this will keep you in good health as well.

“I have always had enlarged tonsils and would occasionally get tonsil stones which led to bad breath. I started with the toothpaste and mouthwash, then got my 9 year old son started. I now have no more bad breath or tonsil stones. Thanks SO much.”
-Rachel R. (Springfield, IL)

-Lin N. (Reno, NV)

Tonsil Stones and Tonsilloliths Can Be PreventedTonsil stones, also known as tonsilloliths, are caused by an accumulation of sulfur-producing bacteria and debris that become lodged in the tonsils. The debris, which can include mucous from post nasal drip, putrifies in the back of your throat and collects in the tonsil crypts (small pockets which appear on the surface of the tonsils).

Along with tonsil stones, when the debris combine with the volatile sulfur compounds produced by the anaerobic bacteria beneath the surface of your tongue, it can also create chronic Halitosis (and other bad breath and taste disorders).

Important: If you do not have your tonsils then you will not under most circumstances experience tonsil stones. However this does not mean that you should run out and get your tonsils removed.

As we get older, tonsillectomies become increasingly dangerous; however, even if you have your tonsils removed, you will most likely still have bad breath! Why?

The sulfur-producing bacteria breeding beneath the surface of your tongue, which are integral to the creation of those tonsil stones, are the most likely candidates to cause bad breath!

So, even if you have your tonsils removed, unless you remove or hinder these anaerobic bacteria, you may still scare away people with your bad breath!

And, since you can’t have your tongue removed (at least not in the U.S.), there is a better idea. Fortunately, getting rid of tonsil stones is not that difficult…

How to Get Rid of Tonsil Stones

A simple combination of oxygenating tablets and nasal sinus drops will effectively eliminate tonsil stones without unnecessary tonsil surgery. Also, the occasional use of an oxygenating spray will help to immediately neutralize the anaerobic sulfur-producing bacteria on contact.

The Bad Breath Bible states that if you truly want to prevent bad breath then you must use oxygenating toothpastes and mouthwashes, and ideally a tongue scraper to effectively neutralize the anaerobic bacteria from the very back of the tongue.

When you use such an oxygenating toothpaste and mouthwash, you will experience a residual effect from the oxygenating tablets and nasal sinus drops solution, and it will stop the tonsil stones from ever forming again.

According to the California Breath Clinics, which has offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, research has found that most people following this formula have reported a significant reduction or complete elimination of tonsil stones.

Bad Breath Cause

Some of the causes and risk factors for bad breath are foods, smoking, dry mouth, medical conditions, gum disease, and sinus conditions.

One of the causes of bad breath is simply what we eat.

But it is important to recognize that bad breath in this case doesn’t come from the stomach itself because there is a one-way valve between the stomach and the esophagus that prevents that.  What happens is that the offensive gases of the stomach are borne by the bloodstream into the lungs, and so the breath becomes offensive

Cure Bad Breath with Modern Bad Breath Technology

Do you have  bad breath that is continuous and lasting? If all other factors have been ruled out, you should consider taking sophisticated tests using modern technology: A new portable sulfide monitor called the Halimeter is being used widely to test for levels of sulfur emissions in the mouth air.

Be advised as it  has drawbacks in clinical and lab applications. For example, many common sulfides are not recorded as easily and can be read erroneously in test results. Certain foods such as garlic and onions produce sulfur in the breath for as long as 48 hours and can result in false readings.

The Halimeter is also found to be very sensitive to alcoholic drinks; you may need to avoid drinking alcohol or using alcohol-rich mouthwashes for at least 12 hours prior to being tested. This meter will loose its sensitivity over time and requires periodic recalibration to remain accurate.

Modern research have given us portable gas chromatography machines such as the “OralChroma“, which is specifically designed to digitally measure molecular levels of the three major odor compounds in a sample of mouth air. It is extremely accurate in its results and produces visual conclusions in graph form via computer interface.

Microbiological testing of swab samples of teeth and tongue residue remains the most accurate method of determining the specific bacterial causes of oral malodor.

The Top 5 Myths About Bad Breath

“The Top 5 Myths About Bad Breath”

Myth 1: Bad Breath Is Caused By Poor Hygiene.

Depending on whose figures you accept, bad breath is a problem that affects as much as 90% of the population, to some extent. However, despite common beliefs, in most cases, it is not caused by poor oral hygiene. A very small percentage of cases may be, but the overwhelming majority aren’t.

It’s the most common myth out there about the problem. However, most people who suffer from bad breath actually have excellent hygiene practices because, based on that misunderstanding, the worse their problem gets, the more they brush and scrub and gargle and floss to try to get rid of it. It’s a futile effort though (and, in some cases, can actually make the problem worse, as many toothpastes and mouthwashes have ingredients that actually make bad breath more pronounced in the long term!).

Of course it does not hurt to use your electric toothbrush.

Myth 2: Treating Bad Breath Requires Expensive Products.

While most of the only cover up and mask the problem, there are a number of extremely effective products on the market that really do tackle the fundamental causes of bad breath. However, they are extremely expensive. Some of them cost as much as $100.00 a month, effectively forever! If you can afford that, great but most of them actually contain the same (or similar) ingredients as the highly-effective home remedy described in The Bad Breath Report (and you can usually get them at your local supermarket for pennies!)

Myth 3: Bad Breath Can’t Be Cured – Only Masked.

Temporarily masking your bad breath with mints and sprays can significantly worsen your problem. Their ingredients create a hospitable environment for bacteria to thrive in your mouth, which is the exact opposite of what you must do to really solve the problem. By using products like these to deal with the symptoms of bad breath, you’ll only make things worse. You need to address the causes of bad breath instead.

Myth 4: Bad Breath Originates In The Stomach.

Years ago, there was much hype about pills that claimed to cure bad breath in your stomach. However, the makers of those pills were practically obliterated by legal action by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for making false claims. In short, it’s completely untrue: While there are some relatively rare medical conditions that do produce bad odors from the stomach, the cause of most cases of bad breath (90%+) is something completely different.

Myth 5: There Is A One-Time Cure For Bad Breath.

It takes quite a long time to develop a bad breath problem. It doesn’t happen overnight. There are a number of factors that gradually combine to cause it. In the same way, while you can rapidly eliminate the odor in just a few days, it will also take time to undo the damage, and to change the environment in your mouth from one that the microorganisms which cause most cases of bad breath love and thrive in to one that they hate and can’t survive in.

By following the recommendations of The Bad Breath Report, most people will get rid of their problem very rapidly. However, if they then stop, and fall back into their old patterns and old ways of doing things, it should come as no surprise that the “old problem” (i.e. bad breath) will gradually begin to reemerge.

Home Remedies For Bad Breath, Bad Breath Cure

Who would want to have bad breath or halitosis? I don’t think anybody would want to have bad breath. Unfortunately, no matter how much we hated to have one if we do not take good care our oral and dental health, it is possible that we can have bad breath. But, do not think that proper oral and dental hygiene is the only reason for your bad breath. Even sinus problems can cause bad breath.

There are some factors that can cause the odor of your mouth. Whatever the reasons maybe for your bad breath condition, it has to be cured. If you concern about having bad breath or halitosis, here are a few tips about home remedy for bad breath that may help you to prevent or cure.

Bad breath is often due to the lack of moisture in your mouth. It is best to drink plenty of water to replenish dry tissues of the mouth and flush any food particles stuck in between teeth. It is often recommended that we drink eight glasses of water each day and this advice will go a long way to reducing bad breath. If you feel like drowning drinking the recommended dosage of water, one best way to moisturize one’s mouth is by eating fresh fruits

Gargling Mouthwash several times a day is not the solution. People who use mouthwash the most often are most likely to have bad breath. Although mouthwash do help to get rid of bacteria and freshen your breath, it also consist of ingredients that can dry your mouth. Hence, using it too many times a day can cause adverse effect instead.

Gargling with baking soda and water is one of the easier home remedy for bad breath. The baking soda assists in neutralizing the bacteria in your mouth and often is successful when used occasionally. Mouth wash is another quick and easy fix. Whether it is store bought mouth wash, or by means of a herbal concoction you find in a magazine, it is a good home remedy for halitosis. The most important way to rid yourself of halitosis, is to increase the number of times you brush and floss your teeth in a day. Flossing is very important, since it rids the teeth of plaque that builds up, resulting in halitosis.

One of the easiest remedies to cure bad breath is consuming sugarless yogurt. You can add this to your routine meals to see the effect yourself. A Japanese study cleared that people who had included sugarless yogurt in their diet had minor hydrogen sulfide levels compared to those people who did not eat it. Hydrogen sulfide causes bad breath amongst most people. Yogurt helps in reducing bad breath as it contains various live bacteria, such as lactobacillus.

Cranberries are another thing that people have found to be effective when it comes to fighting bad breath, try drinking cranberry juice more often, even just a couple of glasses per day might make a big difference.
