Cigarettes And Your Teeth

Posted on 8/8/2022 by Singing River Dentistry Midtown
Cigarettes And Your TeethDue to smoking reducing the amount of oxygen in the bloodstream, gum disease that has already developed cannot heal if the person continues to smoke. People who smoke tend to have a greater quantity of dental plaque, and the progression of gum disease in smokers is typically more rapid than in non-smokers. Even today, gum disease is by far the most common reason for tooth loss in adults.

Smoking Can Cause Gum Recession

A receding gum line may be caused by several lifestyle decisions, including smoking, eating an unhealthy diet, and not practicing good dental hygiene. On the other hand, the Oral Health Foundation states that "those who smoke are more prone to create bacterial plaque," which may result in gum recession and, ultimately, gum disease.

When tobacco products are inhaled, the chemicals that are present inside them attach themselves to the teeth and gums, which ultimately results in tartar being formed. If tartar is not removed, it may either clog the gum lines or, over time, eat away at the gum line, which will result in gum recession.

If tartar is eliminated, it cannot do any of these things. Because smoking lowers your body's capacity to fight gum infection and mend it, therapies may not work as effectively for you as they do for those who don't smoke. This implies that smokers tend to have more severe gum disease; consequently, they are more likely to lose teeth due to the condition.
