Smoking and Its Effect on Teeth

FWFO, MDS - Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopaedics, BDS
Dentist, Gurgaon
Smoking and Its Effect on Teeth

Smoking is a phenomenon where the smoke emanated from a burning substance, usually tobacco, is inhaled. Smoking is a major cause for multiple diseases such as lung cancer, mouth cancer, blood pressure disorders etc.

Smoking tends to limit the capabilities of the immune system and this makes it easier for various diseases to affect the body. Smoking can lead to problems in the teeth where the gum tissues that attach the bone with the teeth are affected. This may cause the blood flow to the gums to be impaired and affect the functioning of the teeth.

The changes that the teeth undergo due to smoking are -

1. It may increase teeth sensitivity.
2. Smoking causes the teeth to be pulled away from the gums.
3. It can result in swollen and bleeding gums.
4. It may cause pain while chewing food.
5. Bone loss around the jawline occurs in smokers.
6. It can result in stained teeth and bad breath.

Disorders related to the teeth caused by smoking

There are various disorders of the teeth which are directly linked to smoking, they are -

  • Mouth cancer - in this condition tumors are formed in the mouth
  • It can cause plaque to accumulate in the teeth
  • It may cause gum disease that can result in tooth loss
  • It may interfere with healing period of any dental treatment
  • It reduces the success rates of teeth implants
  • Sweeteners present in the tobacco can also cause tooth decay

The effects of smoking on the tooth can be minimized by avoiding smoking altogether. Apart from that, following proper dental hygiene such regular brushing and flossing of the teeth will keep the teeth healthy. Avoiding smoking also reduces chances of lesion leukoplakia (white patches near teeth and gums).

Yes, you are right, for cavity you will have to undergo rct--------- take following precautions for your teeth------------------ 1. Drinks: coffee and red wine cause major damage to teeth. But other drinks with high acidity, such as soda, juices and even sports drinks can cause damage staining on the teeth because of its tannins and acidic nature wear away at the tooth enamel. These acidic drinks lowers the ph of teeth below 6 thus causing corrosive wear and tear of teeths. 2. Certain foods: all sweets, candies, popscicles, damage teeth due to its high sugar content. So avoid them as much as you can and if you eat do not forget to rinse your mouth with water immediately after finishing it--------------------------------------- 3. Every time you take meals or eat something make sure to rinse your mouth with water and with homoeopathic rinseout gargles (sbl) after every meals---------------------------------- 4. Use any brand paste for brushing teeth in morning but never forget to scrub teeth with hekla lavatooth powder (wheezal) at night just before sleep.------------------------------------- 5. If possible start a habit of chewing neem stick (datuun) in the morning as it not anly scrubs our teeth but its juice acts as a good antiseptic and antibiotic to destroy the harmful bacterias stuck in out teeth cavities and inbetween teeth.

you can use a sensitivity paste like senquel f.. and apply over affected part for 3 to 5 minutes.. and brush with the same paste.. but if the sensation does not subside ... it would mean that you have to get a root canal treatment done.. on the tooth prior to the treatment kindly get an xray to see how much is the tooth damaged...

I have uneven teeth andi want to make it even, so please give the solution how can I fix this problem and how much will it cost?

BDS
Dentist, Raipur
What is your age? for mal aligned teeth there are many treatment options today. This depends on the case severity, patients requirements, duration of the treatment etc. The very basic treatment is metal brackets. If you don't want metal there is ceramic braces. Both work same with only difference in looks. Duration in these treatment varies from 1 year to 2 average. You need to visit every month for activation. Other is clearpath aligners which are invisible, take lesser time lesser visits and you can follow a virtual treatment where you can see your results even before the completion of the treatment. You can write to me privately for their charges. Metal braces are most economical. You can send me your pictures for proper treatment plan.

How can I solve my halitosis problems? Please help me.

Dentist,
How can I solve my halitosis problems? Please help me.
Go for scaling by a dental surgeon and if any tooth is decayed/broken/food getting stucked, get it treated and the problem will sort out but if the reason is not oral then you need to visit a gastroenterologist to sort out any gastric disorder which is again one reason for halitosis thanks.

I am suffering from pain in my teeth? Can you suggest me any medicine and things I should not eat ?

I am suffering from pain in my teeth? Can you suggest me any medicine and things I should not eat ?
Keep a cotton dipped in clove oil in the cavity of the aching tooth. This will give you some relief. You can take combiflam/brufen tablet if pain is still there. Can wait for few hours to see whether pain subsides. Visit your dentist for better diagnosis and treatment.

Hi. There could be cavity in tooth causing pain. Mostly it might go for root canal treatment or if its wisdom tooth then go for extraction. A xray would surely confirm diagnosis.

I had problem after rct & crown fitting, sometimes there is pain on that teeth area.
There is a chance that the tooth in which rct has been done is slight tender for few days but if the pain persists then probably the infection hasn't gone totally, you need to bring this to your dentist's knowledge and let him assess and take next step.

I have toothache when I eat any cold drink.

BDS
Dentist,
Kindly get an x-ray done of the tooth having pain. May be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown or cap. Till then you can take a pain killer like tab ketorol dt 2 tablets dissolved in water. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene. Also avoid taking cold water as this may cause more pain.

No need to worry sir. The root piece was left behind considering what was best for you. Chances are very slim that it might bother you again once pain and swelling subsides in next 7 days. In many cases root pieces are to be left behind to avoid injury to adjacent vital structures. Though chances are slim of that piece bothering you again, just in case if it bothers later, there are many great dental surgeon who can help you. So relax and enjoy the new year.
