Periodontal Pocket Depths

As stated in the video, you need to be aware of what your periodontal pocket depths are.  These measurements should be made by your dentist or hygienist at every office visit.  They should write them down on a chart for you that you can take home with you.

Doing so will help you to see where  you are at and where you need to go.   Where do you want to be?  Answer: At 3mm and below everywhere.   You don't want anything above 3mm.   Some professionals think that a 4 is ok on the very back molars because the tissue is a little different there.   However,  4 is definitely not ok in the front of your mouth.

To make it easy, I think you should shoot for 3 and below everywhere.   Once you have achieved that and are able to maintain 3 and below, most dental professionals will say your gums are healthy at that point.   All you have to do from that point on is maintain.    You can breathe a little easier because it will be very unlikely that the bad bacteria have sufficient numbers to damage the tissue that supports your teeth.

Power Is More In Your Hands

These numbers are very important to you.  Once you know what they are you are empowered to move forward.  You have a starting point.   That is far better than trying to guess what is happening in your own mouth.   Get those numbers and watch them like a hawk.

Saving The Whole Family From Bad Breath

Does Bad Breath "Run In The Family"?  

Let's face it, sometimes an entire family is afflicted by bad breath.

Inheriting a Problem

One of the problems with being a baby is that we tend to receive our first oral bacteria from our primary care giver, most often the parents.   So, if the parents transmit the bacteria to the children, it can happen that the develop colonies of  the same type.

In addition,  Geographical Tongue refers to a tongue that has a lot of grooves and fissures when compared to other tongues.   These extra hiding spots are great for the anaerobic sulfur compound producing bacteria to hide.

You could inherit this type of tongue from one (or both) of your parents.  Therefore, yes,  it is possible to develop the same problems as our parents have.

What You Do Must Work

What you do to fight this problem has to be effective.   Fresh breath has an influence on both personal and working relationships as well as that all important  'first impression' that everyone talks about.

Even though it may not be true, many people will interpret bad breath as a sign of a person who does not have sufficient cleanliness habits.    This in turn, can affect a person's overall opinion of you.   In sales, it can be a problem that directly affects your bottom line.

Therefore, you have to hit this problem hard.  You have to strike it in a way that is not just masking symptoms but making an impact on reducing bacterial populations.   Many mouthwashes, gums and drops simply cover one smell with another.   This is not the ideal solution.

This is where the power of oxygen comes in.  Remember that bad breath causing bacteria are mostly anaerobic in nature?   This means that they don't like oxygen.  In many cases they can die in the presence of oxygen.

Therefor oxygen is something you might consider adding to your daily oral health routine.   Striking at the level of the bacteria present might make a greater impact over missing them completely by simply covering the smell.   Get at the root of the problem can help to lessen the situation.

pH balance is also important in a product.  A low pH (acidic) causes bacteria to grow more rapidly.  Therefore, it might be helpful to utilize products that  drive the pH higher.  This can slow the growht of the 'bad' bacteria.

Since this problem can afflict an entire family, you can read more about the Family Bad Breath Kit. This kit contains oxygenated and pH balanced products.
