Tobacco - Know How Harmful It Is For Your Dental Health!

Tobacco has many ill effects on the health and dental health is one of them. From dark stains to poor gum health to increased incidence of decay to the more severe oral cancer, tobacco has a very detrimental effect on your dental health. Read on know more about how harmful tobacco can be on the dental system.

  1. Brown teeth and tongue: One of the tell-tale signs of a smoker are the brown teeth and stained tongue. A dentist need not even be told that the person smokes, it just shows!! What is interesting is that these stains do not go away with a scaling, they just continue to form as long as tobacco is being put into the system.
  2. Gum disease: The oral health of a smoker is definitely not at its best. With the stains on the teeth, the gums are more prone for irritation and infection. This leads to grayish, unhealthy gums. The periodontal fibers are also affected, leading to bad breath, pocket formation and even tooth mobility in severe cases. The mouth is generally drier in comparison and so bacterial growth is more favored, further accelerating the process of gum disease and teeth decay.
  3. Dental caries: The increased amount of bacteria leads to greater incidence of dental decay. Chances of cervical decay (around the gum line) and root decay are higher in smokers.
  4. Bad breath: There are two reasons to it one is the tobacco per se and the second is the dry mouth, which leads to reduced saliva and increased bacterial growth.
  5. Impaired taste: The tongue has a constant coating too, leaving the taste buds unable to completely taste food substances. Ask any smoker a couple of questions and you would realize how they never get to enjoy and taste the food as it should be.
  6. Poor healing: Whether it is a gum disease, a tooth removal or a root canal therapy, smokers who go for dental treatment need a longer time to respond compared to nonsmokers. If smoking is continued at the same pace, then the chances of developing a dry socket with an extraction or a failed root canal therapy are quite high. There are more failures reported in success of implant in smokers as compared to non smokers.
  7. Cancer: The most dangerous and the most severe of all, cancer of the cheek, gums, lips, tongue, roof of the mouth can all happen in smokers, twice more likely in comparison with non-smokers.

Now, if all these are not good enough to kick the habit, remember this list is only for the mouth and the teeth. The whole body goes through a lot more harmful effects, and that should be a good reason to quit tobacco use in any form. If you need professional help, do not be embarrassed to seek.

What Is Root Canal Treatment?

What Is Root Canal Treatment?

What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal therapy is actually a process in which diseased, damaged or dead pulp (soft tissue inside your tooth with nerves and blood vessels) is removed from the canals of tooth, after which it is restored by cleaning, shaping and filling of the canals using a suitable restorative material.

Root canal therapy can be done in a single appointment or it might also take multiple visits depending on the situation of infected tooth.

The treated tooth is usually brittle and prone to fracture as there is not much tooth structure left due to a previous huge cavity. Hence after the treatment a crown should be placed on the tooth to restore its natural shape, appearance and prevent it from any possible damage or fracture.

Root canal therapy is one of the best options to save your natural tooth structure from further damage.

RCT is done depending on the infection, the number of sitting depends. Basically 4 sittings and even 1sitting can also be achieved. Yes, you can go to work and just inform your dentist and he will alter according to your convinience. Before RCT an injection is given to eliminate the pain. After procedure also there will be no sensation say for 3 hrs depending upon the dosage. And no restrictions for food. Thank you.

Filling your stomach full before the root canal treatment is surely a good idea because the process sometimes takes as long as 3 hours.

Get an X-ray done asap and see a dentist, there may be a re-infection in that tooth. Warm salt rinses shall help along with a soft diet.
