Open your mouth to make TCM diagnosis and health diagnosis
Chinese medicine believes that the kidney is the main bone, the raw marrow, and the teeth are the bones.
Teeth are related to the gums and kidneys, stomach and large intestine, so observing the teeth and gums can be used to detect the kidney and gastrointestinal lesions.
First, sparse teeth or exposed roots may cause kidney deficiency.
The relationship between teeth and kidneys is the most serious. Therefore, if a person’s teeth are not well developed, the kidneys are usually not good.
For example, adult teeth are sparse, tooth roots are exposed or bleeding with pale gums, tooth yellowing, blood sugar and muscle atrophy are mostly problems of kidney qi deficiency. At the same time, we should be alert to hypertension.
If the child’s teeth do not last for a long time, it may also be caused by kidney Qi deficiency. Liu Wei Di Huang Wan can be applied under the guidance of a doctor.
Second, gingival swelling, gastritis or fatigue.
Chinese medicine believes that gums are related to the stomach and intestines.
If there is simple swelling of the gums, it is mostly caused by gastritis, which may also be related to gastritis; if the swelling is accompanied by loose teeth and strong bad breath, it is mostly periodontal disease.
The cause of this disease is not only the lack of calcium supplements or the uncleanness of toothbrushes, but also the reduction of immunity caused by excessive fatigue.
Third, bleeding gums, poor digestion of the stomach.
The degree of easy bleeding of gums almost occurs in patients with gingivitis or periodontal disease. People with a bad stomach also have this possibility. They should eat less spicy and irritating foods.
Such as widening of the teeth with bleeding gums, common in diseases such as diabetes and hyperthyroidism; such as the teeth become dark or cold during the illness, the teeth become longer and dirt, and the teeth become yellow like a watercress.The disease becomes serious and vigilance should be exercised.
Fourth, loose teeth, one of the signs of osteoporosis.
The main reason for tooth loosening is due to the insufficiency of the alveolar bone, which is caused by osteoporosis.
This situation can be prevented early, such as taking calcium tablets early, carrying out regular physical exercise, and often tooth decay.
In addition, loose teeth and unclean teeth may indicate a potential risk of cardiovascular disease.
Surveys have shown that older people who have a lot of teeth have a high risk of stroke.
Therefore, chewing more can help prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
On the other hand, people who don’t have a good heart should also develop the habit of gargle after meals.
