An estimated 80% of Americans currently have some form of periodontal disease, such as gingivitis, and as we age, we are more susceptible to the serious complications of periodontal disease, such as tooth loss and jaw osteonecrosis (death of the bone).
Preventing and Healing Periodontal Disease
For most of our lives, we have been told to brush and floss our teeth daily to prevent cavities and gum disease. But another useful preventive measure can be the addition of digestive enzymes both as a supplement and as a topical treatment.
Periodontal diseases result from microbial colonization and growth on tooth surfaces and their supportive tissues. The food debris trapped between the teeth and in other areas causes the oral flora to grow faster and produce more organic acids that cause tooth decay and injury to the gums. Oral supplemental enzymes help control those conditions by hydrolyzing (breaking down) food debris in the mouth, thereby removing the nutrients that serve to support the "bad" bacteria. Another way the enzymes help is by preventing the bacteria from attaching themselves to the tooth surfaces. When bacteria are not attached to teeth, they are easily washed away by the saliva, thereby unable to destroy the teeth, the gum line, or other structures. Additionally, the enzymes help heal sores and cuts in the mouth that otherwise may serve as gates for bacteria into the body, which could cause more serious infections.
Dentists working with the Transformation Enzyme Clinic in Houston, Texas found that patients with advanced periodontal disease who used oral enzyme therapy along with other traditional treatments like brushing, flossing and mouthrinse, showed a marked improvement. One patient even was able to avoid dental surgery through the additional use of enzyme therapy.
Incorporating Enzymes into an Oral Hygiene Routine with PureZyme
Along with regular brushing and flossing, PureZyme can help support good dental health. There are two ways to incorporate digestive enzymes into your routine: dissolving the enzymes in water (or just letting the capsule dissolve in your mouth) and swishing in the mouth to help break down food particles and taking them internally to help promote overall immune system function. When a PureZyme solution is swished in the mouth after eating, the protease enzymes have the advantage of being able to reach areas of the mouth that can be missed by brushing.
The simple persistence of food residues in the mouth is the major factor that causes periodontal disease and over a period of time, this disease could lead to more systemic problems as well. A daily routine of brushing, flossing and intake of digestive enzymes both topically (swishing) and internally (supplements) can lead to both a healthy smile and a strong set of teeth that can chew food and ensure we get the proper nutrition needed to keep our body healthy.
