HD Microscopy

Dr. O microscopeThe Oral Microscope has become a staple service at Dr. O’Rielly’s practice for the past 7 years. He has taken thousands of samples and hundreds of videos of samples that are being organized into a book that will be published next year called, ‘The Microbiome in your Mouth – How oral bacteria contributes to heart disease, gut inflammation and Alzheimer’s.’

Dr. O has found very aggressive bacteria and microbes hiding in the gums of over 80% of his patients. These bacteria not only cause gum disease but they leak into your body, having access to both your digestive system and blood stream through bleeding gums.

Dr. O strongly feels that a microscope evaluation is important before having any dental work or tooth cleanings done, as research shows that any bleeding will cause an increase in bacteria count in your blood.

The good news is that these bacteria can be treated simply and inexpensively with simple home care products and tools. Gum inflammation and even gum disease is often reversible if one knows what to do.

Please look at the videos below. They will make an impression and no doubt motivate you to take good care of your teeth and gums. It is not only important for the health of your mouth but also for your whole body.

Natural Gum Care

Gum disease is an inflammatory disease caused by a bacterial infection in the sulcus, the area where the gums fold around the teeth. Bleeding gums is a sign of this condition.  You may not realize you are in danger of weakening the support for your teeth until it is too late, unless your friendly dentist shows you what is going on.

Identifying any of the five pathogens commonly associated with oral problems and disease is the first step.  An excellent way to understand your current condition is with the video capability of a high definition microscope. You have heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  Well this certainly applies here. You will be able to see the amounts and types of bacteria in real time, and will also be armed with the tools and know how to combat infection and improve the health of your mouth.

The human body is usually very resilient and can deal with the low grade infection associated with gum disease over the short term. It is the long term that we are concerned with. Multiple sources of stress and infections will compromise the body’s ability to heal and maintain function.

So it is not only important to identify these issues, it is important to monitor them as well, which routine microscope evaluation allows us to do.  There are simple and often inexpensive protocols that can be done at home to maintain healthy gums over the long term.
