HydroMagnetic Oral Irrigator For Better Health

HydroMagnetic Oral Irrigation Really Is Better? 

Let's stop and do a little thinking.  Just the common sense kind, nothing fancy.   OK?  

When your gums are infected as in gingivitis or gum disease (same disease process in different stages) there is an abundance of bacteria.  

The tissues of your mouth are rather thin.  There is not much barrier between them and your bloodstream. 

A low grade chronic infection in the mouth could potentially function as a wellspring of bacteria that can easily get into your bloodstream and affect other parts of the body.  

For years researchers have been noting a connection between gum disease and a number of other diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, lung infections, and more.    Whether the relationship is causal or not has not been definitively studies as far as I know. 

Yet, I can tell you that I did talk to one anesthesiologist who worked with heart surgeons.   He said most of the heart disease surgeries they did involved a patient with periodontal disease.   

Anecdotal?  Perhaps, but if he was really seeing that most of the time, I don't really find a reason to doubt the observation.  Do you?  

So, keeping your gums healthy and free of gum disease might help the other aspects of your health to improve as well.   

Still with me?  

A long time ago I had an experience wherein I was told that I had gum disease.   I didn't like the description of the treatment they wanted to do.   These are often called 'deep cleanings' or 'scaling and root planing" or SRP treatments.  

They like to scrape under you gumline to get rid of any beneath the gum line tartar that has built up. 

To give you an idea of how that might feel, they typically offer you a local anesthetic to get the job done.  

I put this treatment off for a long time, looking for something that might make my gums healthy again. 

I tried a bunch of things like oil pulling, special toothpastes and mouthwashes, extra string floss and more.   Unfortunately, every time I went back to the dentist, I was reminded that I needed that treatment.   

I was disappointed that nothing was working. 

Then I found a machine that really helped me.   I know it did because the dentist reacted differently.  She said, "Whatever you are doing, keep it up.  You don't need that treatment any longer.  

I was delighted.  

This is what I used: 

My gums were healthy again.   I was very happy.  

I hope you can be too.
