Masks cause gum disease. Here comes the gum disease pandemic.

New research has determined that a person with gum disease who tests “positive” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is nine times more likely to die than a “positive” case without gum disease.

Published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, the study determined that patients with gum disease showed blood markers of inflammation throughout the body, which could be the cause.

“The results of the study suggest that the inflammation in the oral cavity may open the door to the coronavirus becoming more violent,” said study co-author Professor Lior Shapira of Hebrew University in Israel.

“Oral care should be part of the health recommendations to reduce the risk for severe Covid-19 outcomes,” the president-elect of the European Federation of Periodontology added.

Periodontitis is a serious form of gum disease that affects up to half of all adults worldwide. If left untreated, it can spread throughout the body resulting in eventual death.

The study included 568 patients from Qatar who were diagnosed with the China Flu between February and July 2020. Of these, 40 had “complications,” including admission to the ICU, being placed on a ventilator, or death.

Other factors such as body mass index (BMI), asthma, diabetes, heart disease, blood pressure, and smoking were also taken into account when compiling the data.

In the end, patients with gum disease were found to have an 8.81 times higher risk of death than the others. These same patients with gum disease also had between a 3.54- and 4.57-times greater risk of needing to go to intensive care or be put on a ventilator due to their condition.

“If a causal link is established between periodontitis and increased rates of adverse outcomes in Covid-19 patients, then establishing and maintaining periodontal health may become an important part of the care of these patients,” the authors wrote.

Masks cause gum disease, which means masks increase risk of coronavirus death

Back in the summer, it was revealed that persistent mask wearing is becoming a leading cause of gum disease.

Two Manhattan dentists came forward to say that they are seeing hordes of new patients with gum disease, all due to them wearing masks on a regular basis.

So, if masks are causing more gum disease and gum disease massively increases a Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) patient’s risk of complications and death, then the only logical conclusion with all this is that masks increase the risk of Covid-19 death.

Good luck finding any mainstream news source willing to connect these dots. Nobody seems to want to talk about how masks are anything other than the “kind” and “loving” thing to do, all the while ignoring the fact that wearing a mask does not even confer any protection, according to the latest science.

“This may contribute to the deterioration of patients with Covid-19 and raise the risk of death,” says Prof. Mariano Sanz of the Complutense University of Madrid in Spain.

Oral bacteria, Sanz says, which festers inside people’s masks all day long, is easily inhaled, allowing it to infect the lungs and cause serious health problems.

“Hospital staff should identify Covid-19 patients with periodontitis and use oral antiseptics to reduce transmission of bacteria,” he says.

The study further emphasizes the well-established link between periodontitis and lung diseases such as asthma, pneumonia, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. And wearing a mask only further exacerbates the risk of developing these complications.

“This study adds further evidence to the links between oral health and respiratory conditions,” Shapira concludes. “Periodontitis is a common disease but can be prevented and treated.”

    Might I suggest a simple cure? Mix sea salt into water (saline) and sip a little each day to brush your teeth. This cleans teeth very well, just as good as toothpaste and also kills all bacteria on gums. People who brush teeth with sea salt live longer than toothpaste/fluoride/detergent users anyway. Masks are bad for oxygen intake, and CO2 exhalation and lung infection. The role of teeth and gums is obviously crucial in preventing illness, and salt is crucial in fixing gums. Think of the money you will save on toothpaste!!!
    Filter all water to be consumed preferably down to 1 micron, and add yet more years to your life (as long as you avoid vaccine).

    Hi Tap
    Great advice thanks which I’ve passed on to my daughter who is forced to wear a mask by her employers….
    Just one question: when you say “sip a little each day to brush your teeth” what exactly do you mean? Just sip or use with a toothbrush?
    Thanks Pete

    Hi Pete. Good question! Sip but don’t swallow just a little amount of saline – enough to swill around teeth and gums. You can’t get it onto a toothbrush as it flows off! Clean teeth as normal using saline not toothpaste, and swill over gums and brushing gums as much as teeth with a toothbrush. Then spit. Rinse just a bit but keeping salty mouth is good for gums.

    In the old days this was standard before toothpaste came along. Also people took soot from inside the chimney as an abrasive to whiten teeth!

    If you want a minty toothpaste occasionally pre kissing your loved one, e.g., get a non-fluoride one like Aloe Vera. Otherwise salt deals well with any breath/mouth issues.

      Thanks Tap that is very helpful

      As a long time Tapnewswire fan I obviously don’t use a fluoride toothpaste! So this advice makes a lot of sense to me. Toothpaste is off my shopping list altogether now….

      Thank you and best wishes to all at Tapnewswire, keep up the great work. You are my first port of call every day that I am online

    I use Hydrogen Peroxide 3% food grade, don’t go any stronger as its to strong. Works a treat and I have decay receding. Every blue moon I use Bicarbonate of Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide for a deep clean.

    Thank you Tap for your suggestion – will pass it on. And thank you for your wonderful and interesting site.

  6. Tapestry says:

    Thanks Pete. Always good to hear you. Snigger’s got some interesting thoughts as well, heard of the Bicarb thing for whitening teeth. Never heard of Hydrogen Peroxide as a cleaner of teeth. We learn something new every day especially on this blog! Adon, I was the founder. Thank you.
