Pyorrhoea is caused by overgrowth of bacteria in the mouth. It is an advanced stage of periodontal disease which affects the gums. The membranes surrounding the roots of the teeth become swollen and inflamed and pus too may ooze out of the gums. If not treated timely, this disease can lead to shrinkage of the gums. The infected pus often finds it way into the stomach which leads to digestion problems. The bacteria produce many toxins which can even harm the liver.
Stagnation of food particles in the mouth which are not removed by proper brushing and flossing and accumulation of plaque lead to an overgrowth of bacteria which attack the gum tissue and inflame them. As the disease progresses the shrinkage of gums results in the loosening of the teeth which eventually may have to be extracted.
