– The test results showed that his gum infection caused inflammations in his whole body
In order to prove people who avoid taking care of oral hygiene, that are making a big mistake and put themselves at great risk, Dr. Christopher Van Tuleken didn’t wash his teeth for two weeks, and which firstly resulted in severe gum infection – writes dailymail.co.uk
However, when Professor Ian Chepl from the University of Birmingham decided to conduct a more detailed examination on Tuleken it has been shown that the damage was much greater, and that because of his decision his whole immune system had suffered, not only his gums.
The white blood cells responsible for fighting foreign bodies, didn’t attack the intruder immediately, but were moving slowly and disorganized. The test results showed that his gum infection caused inflammations in his whole body.
When the reaction of the body is short in duration, it is considered a healthy response. However, when the body constantly reacts to chronic injuries or infections, such as chronically inflamed gums, our immune system becomes overloaded which leads to a chain reactions that inflicts damage on the whole organism.
Therefore, it is very important to teach your children to brush their teeth for two minutes at least, and how to easily brush each tooth individually.
Despite the ads, expensive brushes are nothing better than the cheap ones, and you can save the toothpaste if you put only a bean- size amount on the brush, which is more than enough if you do not spit it and rinse your mouth over washing.
