STRVANTI PUUYA RUDHIRAM CHALA DANT BHAVANTI CHA I
DANTVESHTAH SA VIGYEYO DUSHTSHONIT SAJBHAVAHA II
Means if there is bleeding from mouth, pus formation and teeth are loosen, of course there is periodontitis. Periodontitis is not only harmful for teeth but also for body. Periodontitis is actually result of not maintaining proper oral hygiene, if people do not brush at night, or do not brush in proper way, plaque formation starts in between teeth and gums, and become harden form of tarter, calculas. Plaque and tarter contains various bacteria. Porphyromonas Gingivals is a bacteria, that harm to oral cavity as well as, if reach to the other part of body through any cut inside the oral cavity, may harm to the body.

Problems of hypertension may also starts and and may lead to the danger of stroke. Endocarditis may also happen which is life threatening.
