Pyorrhoea is a gum disease which increases if treatment not done in time. So visit dentist as early as possible. First you should undergo Dental Cleaning : Scaling. You should know that this gum problem increases day by day and this reduces the bone which supports the tooth. Maybe you could just save tooth right now but it may be that if you do not show in time then it may be that dentist has to take out some tooth. Also its better to remove failing tooh and save those which are good in condition. Do not fear from the treatment. Treatment is done for your good. Do not worry at all. Have faith in God and the dentist.

Only in extremely severe cases does a dentist advise tooth removal and if you are truly motivated to save your teeth you should be visiting a dentist today. The earlier you seek treatment the less likely it is you will lose any teeth.

Hi I understand your concern. Pyorrhoea is a disease of the alveolar bone (your bone which holds the tooth) and the gums. In the advanced form of this disease the bone and gums start to resorb at a very rapid pace leading to eventually loosening of teeth and loss. Therefore it is important that you visit a dental practitioner as soon as possible to prevent such eventualities. Considering your age, the reason for this disease can be attributed to your lack of proper oral care which includes regular two times brushing (AFTER MEALS) flossing and use of a mouthwash. there are several preventive and therapeutic remedies your can follow to treat and to prevent future recurrence of this disease. First and foremost is a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums which can be achieved by professional scaling and polishing. Unless we get rid of the claculus ( stone) and plaque which is already there no amount of medicines will help. Secondly your have to inculcate the habit brushing regularly after meals with a soft brush following flossing. Thereafter a gentle rinsing with a medicated mouthwash will ensure your mouth remains in an aseptic condition for quite sometime till your next meal. There is also a proper way to do the above procedures. Therfore it is strongly advised to get in touch with a dental doctor for clarification and proper management.

Hello,, are you talking about pyorrhoea. Pyorrhoea is the disease of the gum. It can happen to anyone and is one of the most widely prevalent disease. it affects the membrane surrounding the roots of the teeth and leads to pus formation and loosening of the teeth. Symptoms: There are various symptoms that indicate that you have got pyorrhea. Like, bleeding gums, bad breath, and pain while eating, swollen gums, red gums and recessed gums. Causes: The main cause for pus in the teeth is bacterial infection. The other factors are incorrect brushing, improper use of tooth picks, injury to the gum and stagnation of the food particles. Here what you can do at home - Chew on a piece of guava fruit that is not ripe. Alternately, you could also chew on the leaf if possible. This helps to stem the bleeding in the gums- The inner thread-like peel found in bananas is very good for maintaining good tooth-health. Try to eat a banana along with this thread-like peel.- Take a few orange peels and rub them over your gums, to reduce any inflammation. Alternately, you could also try lemon peels or lemon juice for this purpose.- Brush your teeth and immediately rub some mustard oil on to them, to reduce bacterial plaque. - Mix some salt and pepper together and massage the gums with the powder. This helps strengthen the gums and also gets rid of any bacteria.  If pus or pain is more than consult dentist he will prescribe you antibiotics for pus.
