How to Block the Onset of Oral Diseases Naturally

Kyle J. Norton, Master of Nutrition

Scientists may have found a phytochemical isolated from carrots which processes a significant potential in acting as a nonsurgical aid in the treatment of oral diseases, some studies suggested.

Oral diseases are groups of a medical condition, including dental cavities, periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, oral infectious diseases, trauma from injuries, and hereditary lesions.

Some researchers suggested that oral health is an important part of your overall health.

The Ireland dental Health Association in the article Links between oral & general health wrote, "A healthy mouth enables not only nutrition of the physical body, but also enhances social interaction and promotes self-esteem and feelings of well-being" and "Bacteria from the mouth can cause infection in other parts of the body when the immune system has been compromised by disease or medical treatment".

Therefore, maintaining a healthy oral health may result in reducing the risk which links the oral disease to other health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Truly, there are some tips that may help you to prevent the oral health problems, including visiting your dentist one to two times a year for a cleaning and checkup. brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste a minimum of two times per day, replace your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three to four months and floss at least once per day, according to the article published on health Line.

Carrot, a root vegetable with an orange color is a subspecies of Daucus carota, belongings to the family Apiaceae, native to Asian and Europe.

In the aim to find a natural pigment with potential to improve the oral health, researchers at the Swami Devi Dyal Hospital and Dental College conducted an experiment on some of the various classes of pigments in nature, particularly,the pigment lycopene, a red plant pigment found in tomatoes, apricots, guavas, carrots, watermelons, papayas, and pink grapefruits, with tomatoes being the largest contributor to the dietary intake of humans.

Application of lycopene not only exhibits higher antioxidant activity through the ability as a singlet oxygen quenching phytochemical, but also exerts a multifunctional role as a nonsurgical aid in the treatment of oral diseases like leukoplakia, oral submucous fibrosis, lichen planus, oral squamous cell carcinoma, and also prevents the destruction of periodontal tissues.

The findings suggested adding 1 or 2 portions of tomatoes into your daily diet can provide a absolute protection for your oral health.

Furthermore, in the examine the link between chronic periodontitis (CP), a multifactorial infecto-inflammatory disease caused by the interaction of microbial agents present in the biofilm and oxidative stress (OS), an imbalance of the ratio between free radicals and antioxidant enzymes produced by the host body, researchers at the Federal University Rio Grande do Sul conducted a randomised, controlled, double-blind or blind studies to evaluate the effect of selected antioxidant
in chronic periodontitis patients.

Antioxidant including in the study are lycopene, vitamin C, vitamin E, capsules with fruits/vegetables/berry.

At the final report of the experiment, researchers indicated that only lycopene and vitamin E demonstrated statistically significant improvement when compared to a control group in terms of periodontal parameters.

These results were observed through oxidative stress pattern throughout the study. As only lycopene and vitamin E showed a reduction of the levels of oxidative stress compared to others.

Moreover, in the evaluation of the effect of lycopene along with routine scaling and root planing in terms of changes in clinical parameters and levels of circulating tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), salivary interleukin 1beta (IL-1ß), and uric acid in chronic periodontitis, researchers launched a randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel design, double-blinded trial in a total of 42 subjects/

Out of 42 subjects were assigned to the test group (n = 21) received 8 mg lycopene/day and placebo group (n = 21) along with adjunctive scaling and root planing. Patients were monitored at baseline and at 2 months after therapy.

At the end of the study, researchers found that test group (Lycopene) showed better results after therapy compared to the placebo group with all assays, including Periodontal parameters regarding plaque index (PI), modified gingival index (MGI), bleeding on probing (BOP).

Although the serum TNF-α value, the pro-inflammatory cytokine was not statistically significant, it, however, showed an improvement compared to the placebo group.

Taken all together, tomato and carrot processed abundant phytochemical lycopene may be an adjunct therapy combined with conventional medicine for prevention and treatment of oral diseases.

Therefore, adding 2 or 3 portions of tomatoes or carrots or intake of lycopene supplement, according to the guideline on a regular basis may give you a perfect breath and oral health.
