First there was hypoxia, hypoxemia and hypercapnia, now we have “Mask Mouth – Yes, it is a real thing!”
Links between mask-wearing, bacterial/ fungal infections and pneumonia that might just turn out to be deadly and mimic COVID.
Since August, dentists have been quietly reporting on what looks like a silent epidemic. 50% increases in oral infections, gum disease and tooth decay. What could possibly be causing this and the silence that accompanies it?
We know already that there is literally no proper science to back up masking recommendations, let alone mandates. We already know the psychological and emotional damage masks have on individuals and communities, but now we’re beginning to see the true physical cost of wearing one.
“When you wear a face mask it increases the dryness in your mouth. This is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and viruses to grow. Your body produces saliva to create a protective barrier. There are also antimicrobial components that are produced to fight the bacteria. Saliva also plays an important part in preventing viruses from entering directly into our bodies.
What is the actual impact of using face masks on our oral health?
That same protective equipment that we are using to prevent contact with COVID-19 is directly creating negative implications to our health.
Increase of Tooth Decay
When the mouth becomes dry because of wearing the face masks, the saliva produced to flush food particles in our teeth is decreased. Sugar helps bacterial to thrive which and with the food particles not being removed you see tooth decay.
When your body’s immune system sees increases in bacteria and viruses it will create inflammation of the gums. This could be a signal that there are too many bacteria in our mouth that is attacking your gums. This can eventually lead to periodontal disease.
Prolonged dryness in the mouth is the perfect environment for odor-causing bacteria to grow. This is then called Halitosis or Bad Breath. Many patients say that they notice a change in the breath when they have worn a face mask for long periods of time.
Once you have Gum Disease it is an irreversible dental condition and will require care for the rest of your life. This will slowly damage your gums and bone structure in your mouth. Many do not see any symptoms until they begin having receding and inflamed gums.”
Gum Disease is synonymous with periodontal disease, which can be an indicator for and can lead to heart disease, the biggest killer in most western countries.
The role of fresh saliva in maintaining a healthy digestive and immune system cannot be understated:
“3. Cleansing action:
The continuous flow of saliva keeps the mouth clean, free from food particles; shed epithelial cells and foreign bodies. Moreover, the lysozyme present in saliva helps to kill certain bacteria. The evidence of this action is obvious during fever. In most of the fevers, the salivary secretion is diminished.”
“GUM DISEASE AND OTHER SYSTEMIC DISEASES
Researchers have suggested that a link between osteoporosis and bone loss in the jaw. Studies suggest that osteoporosis may lead to tooth loss because the density of the bone that supports the teeth may be decreased, which means the teeth no longer have a solid foundation.
Research has found that bacteria that grow in the oral cavity can be aspirated into the lungs to cause respiratory diseases such as pneumonia, especially in people with periodontal disease.
Researchers found that men with gum disease were 49% more likely to develop kidney cancer, 54% more likely to develop pancreatic cancer, and 30% more likely to develop blood cancers.”
“Several studies have shown that periodontal disease is associated with heart disease. While a cause-and-effect relationship has not yet been proven, research has indicated that periodontal disease increases the risk of heart disease.
Scientists believe that inflammation caused by periodontal disease may be responsible for the association.
Periodontal disease can also exacerbate existing heart conditions…
Additional studies have pointed to a relationship between periodontal disease and stroke. In one study that looked at the causal relationship of oral infection as a risk factor for stroke, people diagnosed with acute cerebrovascular ischemia were found more likely to have an oral infection when compared to those in the control group.”
So, we have masks increasing bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease— a serious ailment linked to a plethora of deadly ones. And we also have the causal connection between general oral bacterial infections and pneumonia (one of many COVID-mimicking deadly disease), when those bacteria are breathed into the respiratory tract:
“An association between oral conditions such as periodontal disease and several respiratory conditions has been noted. For example, recent evidence has suggested a central role for the oral cavity in the process of respiratory infection. Oral periodontopathic bacteria can be aspirated into the lung to cause aspiration pneumonia.”
On top of this , The Last American Vagabond has done some very solid research into the recent spate of cases of yeast infections and Candida, a fungal infection that is now apparently resistant to antibiotics and is being blamed – of course – on COVID:
“While candida typically exists without causing a problem, a specific species, called Candida albicans, can cause an infection if it grows out of control, notes the CDC. If this type of candida overgrows in the vagina, it’s called a yeast infection; if it overgrows inside the mouth, it’s called thrush. It’s also possible to have this yeast growth in the folds of your skin, such as under your breasts.”
And then we have the issue of MIS-A AND MIS-C – Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome – which is also currently being blamed on COVID and called “long haul COVID” in the media:
There are some significant concerns that the ‘vaccines’ might start causing this inflammation of and damage to organs, but again might the masks’ effect on the mouth be the actual culprit of much more heinous and fatal crimes than bad breath and loose teeth – ones currently being blamed on Public Enemy Number 19?
