Got Bad Breath? It Could Be DEADLY

An elderly patient was sitting in my office one day.

She said her husband had told her she had bad breath… but she hadn’t thought much of it.

I told her that fixing her bad breath was now her number-one health priority… and she was SHOCKED.

But the truth is, bad breath can be a symptom of a major health problem.

One that could kill you if you don’t fix it fast.

Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums and is caused by bacterial plaque buildup between the gums and the tooth.

And you know you have gingivitis if you have bad breath – even after brushing.

Most people have a little bit of gingivitis (it occurs in 70% of older Americans), but it can be become bad – especially if it seeps down into your gums and becomes periodontitis.

Periodontitis is a problem because inflammation deep in the tooth destroys the roots that hold the tooth in place. Eventually you can lose the tooth (or all your teeth), but that is not the only reason it is harmful.

Gingivitis and periodontitis are risk factors for heart disease and stroke, lung infections, and even arthritis.

Gingivitis is worse in people who smoke, take certain drugs, are diabetic, and those who eat too much sugar. Good oral hygiene is also important.

Let me show you how to kick gingivitis before it gets out of hand:

Dr. Scott’s Gingivitis Protocol:

  • Stop the Sugar: If you need another reason to stop sugar, here it is. The bacteria in your mouth explodes after you eat something sugary.  During that explosion, bacteria build plaques (that film you feel on your teeth). The more plaque-building bacteria do, the more likely they will make a home under your gums (eventually leading to periodontitis).
  • Salt Water Rinse: Doctors used to recommend salt-water rinses for many conditions. I think salt-water rinses are a great idea–many bacteria cannot survive under salty conditions. Brushing your teeth with salt is another good way to fight gingivitis.
  • Tea Tree Oil Rinse: Tea tree is a great antibiotic. There are mouthwashes with tea tree oil in them I recommend for people with gingivitis (don’t use the straight oil–it can be too harsh). They also make toothpaste with tea tree as an ingredient.
  • Olive Leaf Extract: Look for olive leaf in a mouth wash or toothpaste, but I also recommend taking it internally as a supplement as well. 

Health and Happiness,
