Dental disease (infection/inflammation)
Periodontitis, or pyorrhea, is an advanced stage of periodontal disease in which the bone supporting the teeth begins to erode as a result of the infection. Periodontitis causes halitosis, with bleeding and often painful gums. Poor nutrition, improper brushing, sugar consumption, chronic illness, glandular disorders, blood disease, smoking, drugs, and excessive alcohol consumption make an individual more susceptible to develop pyorrhea.
BC-18 combines three tissue salts to address symptoms such as gum boils, unnatural looseness of teeth, with or without pain, toothache, gums sensitive to cold, abscess at the root of teeth, spongy bleeding gums, pus in gums, and halitosis.
Calcarea fluorica 3X
This tissue salt is found in the surface of the bones and in the enamel of the teeth and, therefore, any deficiency of this biochemic salt in the body can result in dental problems.
- Enamel of teeth is rough and deficient causing rapid decay.
- Looseness of teeth in their sockets.
- Teeth are sensitive to the touch.
Calcarea sulphurica 3X
Calcarea sulphuricum has a direct relation to suppurations of the body. It cures purulent discharges from the mucous membranes and purulent exudations in serous sacs. It is very effective in all ailments in which the process of discharge continues too long and the suppuration is affecting the epithelial tissues.
- Toothache with swollen and sore gums.
- Gums bleed on brushing teeth.
- Ulceration of roots of teeth.
- Indicated when purulent matter discharges.
Silicea is the remedy for all ailments associated with pus formation. Wherever pus is created in an inflamed part of connective tissue or skin, Silicea may be used. This tissue salt ripens the abscess, as its’ main action is to promote suppuration.
- Toothache with deep-seated pain.
- Toothache with ulceration.
