Adults over the age of 35 lose more teeth to gum
diseases than from cavities. At least three out of
four adults are affected at some time in their life.
The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal
diseases is by daily thorough tooth brushing and
flossing techniques and regular professional
examinations and cleanings. Unfortunately, even
with the most diligent home dental care, people
can still develop some form of periodontal
disease. Once this disease starts, professional
intervention is necessary to prevent its progress.
Other important factors that can negatively affect
the health of your gums include: tobacco
usage, stress, clenching and grinding teeth, some
medications, and poor nutrition.
DISEASE & TOBACCO
You are probably familiar with the links between
tobacco use and lung disease, cancer, and heart
disease. Current studies have now also linked
periodontal disease with tobacco usage. Cases of
periodontal disease are more severe in smokers
and tobacco-users than those who do not use
tobacco. There is a greater incidence of calculus
formation on teeth, deeper pockets between
gums and teeth, and a greater loss of the bone
and fibers that hold teeth in your mouth. In
addition, your chance of developing oral cancer
increases with the use of smokeless tobacco.
Chemicals in tobacco such as nicotine and tar
also slow down healing and the predictability of
success following periodontal treatment.
Quitting smoking and tobacco-use can have
innumerous benefits for your overall and
