inexpensive, self treatment stops the progression of periodontal disease
Where does it all start? No dental insurance or dental care over long periods of time.
I thought I was doing all the good things to take care of my mouth, since 1992 and it is now 2011. I brush and floss religiously and use hydrogen peroxide, but during that period I noticed every six months or so I would get an abscess and they became even more frequent.
I knew there would be an underlying problem if I did not get dental care, however; I could not afford it, so I endured by taking antibiotics from wherever I could get them, in hopes of earning enough money for proper dental treatment. Can you imagine not earning enough money for professional dental care over a 19 year period? The lack of money scared me into not doing anything. That I regret.
Well, anyway the pain got so bad I couldn’t stand it, so I borrowed the money from a friend only to learn, not only did I have a real bad tooth, but also periodontal disease. Well, to me, that's like cancer. There goes another $80 buck, which I did not have spent for nothing but a dental visit, xrays and more bad news. And this is twice I've done this trying to make it till I could get professional dental help by going to the cheapest places. So I did do my research and they both are located in excess of 40 miles from my home, another problem.
Dealing with the pain? I used a recipe of ground 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1/4 tsp salt (take care w/salt might be an irritant) and pinch of baking soda, rolled in a square of coffee filter or tea bage paper. This gave me immediate pain relief. And I must continue until I can get the bad tooth extracted. There are numerous recipes like this on the internet.
Dealing with the Periodontal Disease? Due to financial constraints, I have no other choice than to try something on my own and that will be PERIODONTAL DISEASE SELF TREATMENT GUIDELINES
