Bacterialvaginosis is a disease that's caused by the overgrowth of a type of bacteria that's called Gardnerella vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis. And as the name might suggest, this is the most common vaginal infection. Now I wanna put these really big quotes
around the term infection because the thing that's interesting about Gardnerella vaginalis is that it's a bacteriathat's naturally found in the vagina. Now some may consider this to be a sexually transmitted infection, which is interestingbecause it doesn't cause
any problems until there'stoo much of it there. So when we look to the causes of bacterial vaginosis, they are all things that change the vaginal environment. That can include acts like douching, so douching, or rinsing of the vagina. The other is having newor multiple sex partners.
And finally, another known cause is the use of antibiotics. This could be in the case of somebody that has a throat infection or a pneumonia that's on antibiotics which will then attackthe bacteria that exists within the vagina andallow Gardnerella vaginalis to overgrow and cause bacterial vaginosis.
So we've touched a little bit on it here, but I wanna draw it out. So when we talk about the pathophysiology of a disease, we'retalking about the mechanism by which that disease occurs. So in order to understandthe pathophysiology of bacterial vaginosis, we need to take a look at a sample of bacteria
that exists in the vagina. So I'll draw out someGardnerella vaginalis bacteria, and so I'll put this up in our key. This is the symbol forGardnerella vaginalis. And I'll draw a few of them around here, but I also wanna show that there are a lot of other bacteriathat exist in this sample. So if you really look at it here,
Bleeding Gums Warning Stop Periodontal and Gum Disease
Here you see the dental hygienist performinga periodontal scaling procedure. It involves removing the plaque and calculus or tartarthat has built up around the tooth. Notice how that even a moderate case of periodontalbuildup can cause bacterial infection. Now as you can see with a severe case of periodontitis,there is a large buildup of bacterial caused tartar in the gum pocket which is causinginflammation, infection and bleeding. The root scaling is removing that bacterial plaque,but the gums are already inflamed and infected, and so damage is occurring to the teeth andto the gums. All this is caused by ï¿½BAD BACTERIAï¿½.
These bacteria can multiply by the millionsin just a few hours and plaque can get a foothold in your mouth, Which can turn into tartarwhich usually forms along the gum line. The tartar buildup causes a pocket to form betweenthe tooth and the gum, which allows bacteria to hide and create infection and inflammation.This can lead to bleeding, red, swollen gums which are a sign of gingivitis and periodontitis,which could eventually cause tooth loss and expensive medical procedures.

7 Most Painful Dental Conditions Ever How They Will Kill You
These are the seven most painful dental conditions ever. After watching this, you'll be scared shitless about your next trip to the dentist. Number 7: Dental AbscessA dental abscess is an infection inside the tooth or the gums that's filled with pus.If not treated properly, it has the potential to turn deadly. While there are a few differenttypes of abscesses, they generally all have similar symptoms. The pain involved with an abscess usuallystarts off mild, but can quickly become extremely painful. The pain has been described as athrobbing or shooting sensation. The area in question will also swell up turn red.In more extreme cases, the abscess may spread
to the bones tissue near the teeth, whichcould cause swelling in the face or lymph glands on the neck. The pain will then spreadto the side of the face near the toothache. If a severe abscess were to go untreated,it could eventually spread internally to tissues muscles near the infected area. This spreadcan lead to a dangerous condition known as Ludwig's angina, or an infection occuringon the floor of the mouth. This disease can be deadly as it often restricts necessaryairways. In fact, the name â€œanginaâ€� is derived from the Greek word â€œankhon,â€�meaning â€œstrangling.â€� In addition to feelings of being strangled, the face, neck, headwill also become infected.
It is even possible for people to die froman abscess. Famous fashion designer notorious Nazi supporter Hugo Boss died from a toothabcess in 1948. A 12yearold boy named Deamonte Driver died from a tooth abscess as well whenit spread to his brain. Despite two operations six weeks in the , his life couldnot be saved. The same thing happened in 2011 to 24yearold Kyle Willis when the infectionspread to his brain caused it to swell. In the cases of both Driver Willis, a delayin treatment was due to the fact that neither of them had health insurance. Number 6: Periodontal Gum DiseasePeriodontal gum disease is the result when
gingivitis goes untreated. It appears as inflammation infection around the tooth when severe enough, can cause tooth loss damage to yourbone structure. Once your gums are infected, they begin pulling away from the tooth. Thisspace allows bacteria to form underneath the gums. It'll then progress by badly damagingthe bone structure under the gums usually results in teeth falling out or being removedif not treated properly. Symptoms of periodontal gum disease includesensitive teeth, bleeding gums, swollen gums, loose teeth, painful chewing. It is oftenthe result of smoking, hormonal changes, or a byproduct of other diseases such as diabetesor even AIDS.
Number 5: EdentulismEdentulism is a condition in which one is either completelyâ€”or at least partiallyâ€”toothless.It affects an estimated 158 million people worldwide. As we all can suspect, losing one's teethcan be very problematic. Teeth serve many basic yet important functions such as chewingfood, maintaining speech, supporting your facial structure. Teeth also allow humansto break their food down in a manner that is more digestible through a process knownas mastication. As a result, malnutrition is a very possible side effect, which mayadditionally have a domino effect. Weight
loss, constipation, arthritis have beenknown to occur as well. In the most extreme cases of edentulism, the condition has evenbeen connected to more serious sometimes lifethreatening diseases such as Parkinson'sdisease, heart problems, even cancer. Number 4: TMJ ConditionsTemporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ, describes a condition in which three importantparts of the mouth experience pain: the muscles that move the jaw, the muscles of mastication, the temporomandibular joints (which connect the mandible to the skull). If left untreated,TMJ conditions can become chronic quite painful.
