Snuff Among The
Most Common Causes Of Periodontal Disease
On 31 May is World No Snuff day.
Many countries join efforts to spend at least one smoke-free day, and all other
forms of consumption in the world. We know that is very harmful to our health
and, in fact, is the main cause of the most serious diseases. The signal
empirical evidence that snuff is the number one risk factor of all types of
cancers and also is the most powerful enemy of oral health, specifically which includes periodontal disease, receding gums or so on.
Substances containing cigarettes are highly dangerous for teeth and gums, both at
the level of health and aesthetic level. The consequences on our mouths go far
beyond halitosis and stains on the enamel.
The worst enemy of teeth and gums
The snuff is directly related to
periodontal disease, one of the most prevalent disease. Many adults who lose
their teeth because of an untreated gingival inflammation, and smokers are
three times more likely to suffer. In fact, they even progress faster than in
non-smokers. It also tends to be masked and the symptoms aren't noticed or even
considered as common. For example, bleeding gums, which many consider a common
effect of a tooth brushing too aggressive.
There are also adverse effects in
the field of Implantology. In fact, smokers are contraindicated patients access
to treatment of dental implants. In recent years, it has been reported that 9
out of 10 cases of implant failure are due to snuff. And not only that but as
with periodontal disease are more likely to suffer from what is known as
Peri-implantitis. What exactly is this disease? It's like periodontitis but
instead to affect natural teeth, affects implants. The rehabilitation of the
smile through this treatment is then completely ineffective.
Worst of all is that the snuff is
directly related to oral cancer, one of the deadliest in the world. It usually
affects more to adult men over 40 years. Cigarettes contain a high number of
carcinogens, among which nicotine and tar. And when combined with alcohol, the
risk of this disease rises considerably. In this situation, it is advised to
stop smoking with the help of your doctor and your dentist.
