"The WaterPik Ultra 100 can do wonders for your mouth"
If you have a problem with bleeding gums don't ignore it. It is a early warning signal for much greater problems. Read this article from The American Dental Association ona study which showed that periodontal disease can increases the risk of an heart attack. Also, Larry Clapp, PhD, JD in his book Prostate Health in 90 Days without drugs or surgery made a most interesting analysis of how the health of your teeth and gums can have a direct impact on other organs such as your heart:
The human mouth is filled with bacteria, viruses, and other germs. This is not surprising, for the mouth is open to the environment.... The numerous germs that fill the typical mouth are not normally dangerous, because the immune system holds them at bay, preventing them from moving into the body. But sometimes-too many times-something goes wrong.... our internal defenses are not nearly as effective against long-term, low-grade infections that fester in our mouths, hidden under or behind our teeth ... Whatever their cause(s), these simmering infections are breeding grounds for germs that may ultimately over-power or outwit our immune system. Then the germs spread far and wide, either loudly proclaiming their presence (pain) in the body by wreaking havoc, or quietly taking up residence in an organ or tissue, subtly and cumulatively weakening us with vague and undiagnosable pains, fevers, neurologic disturbances, and immune system disorders, or perhaps vision or hearing difficulties...
Germs fanning out from the teeth needn't go far to do damage. Only a couple of centimeters separate the upper teeth from the brain. But the brain is not the only organ or body system at risk. Hidden dental infections can cause a great deal of trouble, including:
Elevated blood pressure: Certain bacteria that take up residence in the mouth can increase the amount of serotonin in the body. Serotonin in turn causes tiny blood vessels called capillaries to constrict (clamp down). Imagine that you are driving through a tunnel that suddenly gets smaller. You had no trouble driving when the tunnel was wide, but now that it's narrowed you keep brushing against the side. When the tunnel becomes too narrow your car gets stuck, and you can't back up because there are too many cars behind you, all pushing to move ahead.
Something similar happens in your blood vessels. When the bacteria-induced increase in serotonin narrows the capillaries that serve as "tunnels" for the blood traveling through the body, blood pressure rises. As blood pressure goes up, so does the risk of headaches, as well as stroke, heart disease, and other serious ailments. Millions of Americans are taking medications to relieve their headaches, reduce blood pressure, and handle other ailments. How many would be better off if the hidden infections in their mouths were simply cleared away? ...
Word to the wise: do not ignore those bleeding gums. See your dentist and arm yourself with the WaterPik Dental Care System.
