Trench Mouth – A severe problem that needs to be taken care of
Our gums are really sensitive and are prone to a lot of diseases. The most common being gingivitis. When it comes to gingivitis, if you feel bad breath, bleeding gums and open sores then be ready to accept the fact that you are suffering from Trench Mouth. To put things straight, it is the most painful form of gingivitis although it is not much seen but without any proper oral health hygiene.
The name Trench Mouth originated from World War I because at that time soldiers did not have adequate oral health products. For developed countries this type of disease is not very common but it is prevalent in many of the under developed countries where there is lack of proper dental health. However do not think that the citizens of developed nations will not be affected. The reason why citizens of under developed countries gets affected is because of lack of proper dental health and the reason why citizens of developed nations will be affected is because we do not care for our teeth.
