Smoking and Its Effect on Teeth

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).

Causes of Depression-

Causes of Depression-
Depression Causes-

There is no single cause of depression. You can develop it for different reasons and it has many different triggers.
For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries – can be the cause.

Often, different causes combine to trigger depression. For example, you may feel low after an illness and then experience a traumatic event, such as bereavement, which brings on depression.

People often talk about a "downward spiral" of events that leads to depression. For example, if your relationship with your partner breaks down, you're likely to feel low, so you stop seeing friends and family and you may start drinking more. All of this can make you feel even worse and trigger depression.
Some studies have also suggested you're more likely to get depression as you get older, and that it's more common if you live in difficult social and economic circumstances.

Stressful events-
Most people take time to come to terms with stressful events, such as bereavement or a relationship breakdown. When these stressful events happen, you have a higher risk of becoming depressed if you stop seeing your friends and family and you try to deal with your problems on your own.

You may have a higher risk of depression if you have a long standing or life-threatening illness, such as coronary heart disease or cancer.
Head injuries are also an often under-recognised cause of depression. A severe head injury can trigger mood swings and emotional problems.

Some people may have an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) resulting from problems with their immune system. In rarer cases a minor head injury can damage the pituitary gland, a pea-sized gland at the base of your brain that produces thyroid-stimulating hormones.
This can cause a number of symptoms, such as extreme tiredness and a loss of interest in sex (loss of libido), which can in turn lead to depression.

You may be more vulnerable to depression if you have certain personality traits, such as low self-esteem or being overly self-critical. This may be because of the genes you've inherited from your parents, or because of your early life experiences.

Family history-
If someone else in your family has suffered from depression in the past, such as a parent or sister or brother, then it's more likely you will too.

Giving birth-
Some women are particularly vulnerable to depression after pregnancy. The hormonal and physical changes, as well as added responsibility of a new life, can lead to postnatal depression.

Becoming cut off from your family and friends can increase your risk of depression.

Alcohol and drugs-
Some people try to cope when life is getting them down by drinking too much alcohol or taking drugs. This can result in a spiral of depression.
Cannabis helps you relax, but there is evidence that it can bring on depression, especially in teenagers.
And don't be tempted to drown your sorrows with a drink. Alcohol is categorised as a "strong depressant" and actually makes depression worse.
Depression can be triggered by more than one factor.

I am 45 years old male and I keep thinking about my future and imminent death and old age issues. Some times I don't feel that I have not done enough to feel secure. Not many friends and I have almost no social life. Some times I miss my night sleep due to anxiety and it shoots up when I have to travel and stay in a hotel with windows sealed. Because of this I avoided going to US this July.

You are incapacitating yourself. Everybody must be responsible, respectful and functional at all times to remain healthy as a personality. And the beauty is that it is never too late for anything. Go out and socialize. Being a recluse will on give you time to entertain negative thoughts and develop anxiety. This is no way to live life. We are social animals, gregarious by nature and we need each other. In that​ context, we need to develop until we become interdependent.

From past few months I am suffering from hair fall problem. Specially in the front of my head. Its really very depressing. I need some good suggestion, tips ,oils & medicine.

MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Aurangabad
Hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. From stress anaemia to thyroid we have good treatment in homeopathy without causing any side effects. Homoeo medicines are given internally to restore healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Precautions for care of your hair -take nutritious healthy high protin food -have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. -avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. -use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. - hard water is harmful. Boiling and cooling will reduce hardness. - when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. - use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair.

Dear Doctor My son has been suffering from OCD for past more than a year, he tries to clean his TV screen repeatedly and checks his electronic gadgets. Has been under treatment for anxiety, depression and also OCD last two years. Present medication is Fludac, sized on and admenta. Not able to control his OCD and feels stressed all the time, is not able to concentrate and does not like to go to college, please advise. Very tormenting for him as well as his parents.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
I can understand the OCD symptoms being severe in intensity along with anxiety and depression. But whatever be the severity OCD symptoms can definitely be brought under control. What is the dose of fludac and sizodon. Admenta doesn't act on OCD symptoms. I am surprised why another OCD reducing ,medication has not been added. I think he needs revision of prescription, kindly take a 2nd opinion, from an experienced psychiatrist, he should be alright. Also, if possible combine CBT and Behavior modification technique from a a clinical psychologist, for better daily functioning. Wishes to your son for speedy remission.

No need to take medication for this issue. These are normal problems only. You can start some lamaze exercises and relaxation too. Everything will get fine once the baby is out. Only the back pain might continue after delivery. Consult any physiotherapist for back stretching and strengthening exercises after delivery. Else this might become a life long pain.

My father does't like reading, writing and watching TV; the things that he enjoyed after having an emergency with big dip in sodium level. He was also in depression for some time after that. What is the remedy? He is 76.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
During some episodes of his condition, he is likely to abstain from some interests that he had formerly. There are still a lot of other things to be done, some of which may attract his attention. Do not let him wallow in inactivity. He will withdraw into himself and may lose himself completely. Throw anything into the ring to see what appeals to him and draw him out of his internal frame of mind. Once he relates to the external world with whatever catches his attention, you could cultivate a new set of activities into his regimen. The occupation should engage both his body and mind. The depression will impact the level of boredom and this may put him off things that he used to relish earlier. Your ingenuity has to kick in to discover newer methods, and it may be a constant exercise, in the long run. Any neglect may only lead to his wasting away his life, and may even lead to a bed-ridden state. That is not going to be something to look forward to. So for his sake and yours, get him moving. You may also try acupuncture and full body massage.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

Dear Habiba, Welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

You need to give your body rest in between sex and extra hardwork. Try relaxation and breathing exercises. Try coq10. Take balanced diet and life work. For further discussion consult privately.

Hi I have anxiety problem it's not often but whenever I am in situation when I need to compose myself to resolve any issue or a high kind of problem especially in office suddenly my nervous system breakdown and my brain stop working I lost my control over my body. You can say panic attack or anxiety even today morning it happened when I got an issue and I required to Perform. Kindly suggest your valuable suggestion what should I do to overcome this problem.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ Anxiety can be an overwhelming issue, which can prevent you for initiating or completing daily activities that require a continuous sustained attention. It seems from your description of the problem which is very brief that you are also having panic attacks. You may benefit from medications for the problems that are associated with distressing symptoms on a daily basis. A psychiatric evaluation may elicit some social problems that are contributing to your condition, and it may be appropriate to start you on medications after a thorough evaluation. I believe that you need to focus as much as you can on the symptoms and divert your attention from them when you recognize them. Also being able to face anxiety evoking situations without causing you to be distressed is something that you can be working on using mindfulness meditation. All said you may need medications to take the edge off of your anxiety.

I am married for 15 years, having 13 years son. Living with my in laws. My in laws are very much abusive and intervene in every matter of us. My husband never supports me and never stop his parents to doing so. He is kind of mumma's boy. Each time after a big fight, my in laws used to go to their elder son's house, but again after few months my husband bring them back to our place and again the same things starts happening. Whenever his parents are not living with him, he doesn't live like a husband or a dad. As and when his parents are with us, at the same time he wants me to happy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It not good for you all to stay together in the same house for long for various reasons. If these in-laws are unwell and need for you to take care of them, I can understand. But if they are staying with you for convenience's sake, then it will cause you all inconvenience unnecessarily. If you can put your foot down and really make it difficult for this arrangement to go on, then maybe your hubby will find it better to let them stay in the elder brother's house. Even that is not fair to them but if they have been housing them before, they may be able to handle it better. But if he is'momma's boy' you could get some reaction from your husband that may worsen the situation. Then you have a choice between the lesser of two evils. Their presence in the house may be spoiling him and letting him act less responsibly. You know there is a good trick to employ with him but you need to have the parents out of the house to make this work. There is a little bit of mothering and fathering that goes on between husbands and wives. I am sure that if you mother him a little excessively (obviously in their absence), you could make him dependent on you instead of his mother and gradually make him lean on you for those needs and'steal' him from her! this has to be done very subtly. You may also meet with a counselor and see how it works with support from a professional and get things under control. You could also have a sensible talk with him about these problems and see if he is willing to forego his parents for the welfare of the family. Do not leave any stone unturned in your endeavours to pursue this matter until you succeed. Your request is very reasonable and so other people, other than family, will always support you.

Hi, I would suggest you to first pay a sound attention to your physical health. Start with a brisk walk daily for minimum 45 minutes wearing sports shoes. Do slow and deep breathing for 10 minutes after waking up in the morning and before going to bed in the night. Also have a stomach full of healthy breakfast after 2-3 hours of waking up in the morning. Do this routine for at least 15 days and you yourself will feel the positive difference in yourself.
