Smoking And Your Teeth

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 03:14 PM

Smoking can cause an incredible number of health problems so perhaps it is no surprise to learn that its effects on your teeth and gums are often overlooked. As a respected Bangkok dental clinic, we see patients from all walks of life but we are always horrified at the damage smoking does to a person’s oral health.

Superficial & Beyond

Your mouth is the epicenter for cigarettes which leads to yellow stained teeth and foul smelling breath among other things. Yet this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the negative effects of smoking on your gums and teeth. Bangkok dental clinics are filled with individuals who smoke cigarettes and our team often discovers conditions such as periodontal disease in smokers.

Periodontal disease is a number of disorders which play havoc with your gums. If you have a healthy mouth, your gums stay tight to the base of your teeth and ensure the roots of your teeth are protected. When you smoke, you irritate the gum tissue, reduce blood flow to the gums and the end result is damage which may see your gums begin to pull away from the teeth thus leaving the roots exposed; it can also be extremely painful.

An estimated 75% of periodontal cases occur in smokers and if you smoke you are 7 times more likely to suffer from this condition than a non-smoker. Even those exposed to secondhand smoke are at risk.

Other oral issues caused by smoking include delayed healing from oral (and other surgeries), salivary gland inflammation and bone loss in the jaw. None of this is a surprise given recent studies which show a correlation between oral health and overall health.

If you value your teeth and general health, listen to the experts at  Bangkok dental clinics who tell you to stop smoking!
